Match preview V Frome
« on: January 12, 2018, 06:36:40 PM »
Frome Town v King’s Lynn Town
 
Saturday 13th January

Lynn make the trip to Frome on Saturday looking to improve on the goalless draw recorded at The Walks earlier in the season.

Mid-table Frome made progress in the league cup during the week by virtue of Taunton Town being unable to raise a team. A little ironic in that Frome have had difficulty themselves with players being unavailable recently.

For the Taunton game, Frome registered three players who normally play Western League football as illness swept through the club including manager Josh Jeffries.

For the trip to Biggleswade on Saturday, Frome had twelve players available with manager Jeffries and coach Ben Cleverley adding their names to the bench as they did in the 1-2 home defeat against Merthyr Town on New Year's Day. To their credit they came away with a 2-1 win at Biggleswade although they were indebted to 'keeper Kyle Phillips for a number of fine saves.

Over the holiday period they lost joint leading scorer Jake Jackson (13 goals from 29 appearances) who moved to Chippenham Town.

For the visit of Lynn, defender Kris Miller returns from suspension and it is anticipated midfielder Jon Davies will have recovered from illness, but defender Sam Teale is suspended.

Another potential banana skin? :dontknow:
"If a window was broken or a drain was blocked up, someone was certain to say that Grissles had come in the night and done it, and when the key of the store-shed was lost, the whole farm was convinced that Grissles had thrown it down the well. Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after

Disappointing result 9 points from our last 21 away from home.

Realistically now, if we want to win the league now we must beat Weymouth and Hereford in my
opinion.

The way our strike force is performing we will struggle to beat an egg! :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

A goalless draw is frustrating but this is a tough league and we have no right to expect Lynn to win all the time. Frome are a decent side, so it is no disgrace picking up a point. To put things in perspective: Kettering were held at home by 21st place King's Langley and Weymouth drew away at mid-table Stratford. We're still top, after all. Hereford are obviously the best placed at the minute but if we beat them home and away...  :scarf:

A point a long way from home is a decent result and we are top of the league. Well done, one game at a time and let's enjoy the ride.
