King’s Lynn Town lost their 100% record but it wasn’t through a lack of creating chances but more a result of a combination of poor finishing and excellent goalkeeping from Brakes’ custodian Callum Hawkins.
For the first time this season there was a change to the Linnets starting line-up with Tai Fleming coming in for the injured Olly Scott. Josh Barrett returned to the bench having missed the match against Telford while Tyler Knowles took a place on the bench at the expense of Ken Charles.
Lynn started on the front foot but early chances from Theo Widdrington on three minutes and Michael Clunan on eleven were well off target.
The home side were on top but the Brakes did not allow them to settle. Clunan had another effort that was off target and Gold Omotayo should have done better when heading the ball down only to see it bounce over the bar.
The goal that Lynn deserved for their efforts arrived on 34 minutes when an Aaron Jones’ cross found Omotayo who headed down for Theo Widdrington to stab home.
Leamington had little to offer going forward, Devon Kelly-Evans seeing one shot deflected away for a corner and another going wide.
Jordan Ponticelli had the final chance of the half when he saw his volley going inches over the bar after a build-up involving Tyler Denton, Clunan and Jones.
The striker was again in action soon after the restart but he was enable to add to the two goals of last week. His first effort was well saved by Hawkins and this was soon followed by an effort over the bar and then one which went wide.
He was then denied again by Hawkins at the expense of a corner which resulted in Omotayo’s header hitting the upright.
Omotayo had a free header go just wide of the upright and and Barrett then skimmed the other post with a shot.
The Brakes had shown more of an attacking intent in the second half without troubling Paul Jones but on 73 minutes Dan Turner sprung a surprise when he got on the end of a cross to slot home.
Lynn continued to create and miss chances and when they were on target, as in the 88th minute, Hawkins managed to get an outstretched leg in the way of a Ben Stephens’ effort bound for the far side of the goal.
