Match report v Dunstable
« on: February 03, 2018, 07:10:05 PM »
Kings Lynn 5 v Dunstable 0

Lynn made one change from the starting eleven that recorded the excellent victory over Hereford, with Craig Parker coming in for Cameron King who picked up an ankle injury on Tuesday.

Dunstable, in the relegation battle with Gosport Borough, had little to offer against a confident Lynn side who dominated throughout.

Cameron Norman was again inspirational and created the first two chances with Frazer Blake-Tracy heading wide on two minutes. Ryan Hawkins then saw his effort cleared by Peter Closo four minutes later.

Ryan Fryatt was the next to go close, heading Michael Clunan's corner across goal.

Michael Gash was next to try but he headed Blake-Tracy's cross wide.

Dunstable won their first corner on 23 minutes and a few minutes later had their best chance of the half when Andrew Osai-Bonsu broke through but shot high and wide.

Two further chances fell to Lynn around the half hour mark with Hawkins firing wide and Parker seeing his shot well saved by Will Hall in the visitors' goal. Norman was unlucky not to get in on the rebound.

Lynn's pressure and patience paid off with two goals in as many minutes. On 36 minutes a number of Lynn corners eventually ended with a goal with the ball ping-ponging around the goalmouth with
Lynn first seeing the ball blocked and then hitting the post before Parker managed to find the net.

One became two when Gash saw his attempt beaten out by Hall but while Gash couldn't force the rebound home, Hawkins was on hand to bundle it over the line.

Six minutes after the restart Ryan Fryatt rose high to head home Clunan's corner and the remaining goals came from Lynn substitutes.

The was no luck for Toby Hilliard who saw his shot well saved in 69 minutes but four minutes later Tom Siddons was on hand to score on the rebound after Dion Fraryhad headed Simon Lappin's corner onto the bar.
 
Hilliard was once again thwarted, this time by the bar, but Eion McQuaid was more fortunate with a long distance strike that hit the underside of the bar and was adjudged to have crossed the line despite the efforts of Hall,  McQuaid's first league goal for the club.

Hall, who had done well to keep the score down, produce a good stop to deny Siddons a second.

Lynn: Street, Norman, Blake-Tracy, Frary, Fryatt, Jarvis, Clunan (McQuaid 70), Parker, Gash (Siddons 62), Hawkins (Hilliard 62), Lappin. Subs: Hilliard, Siddons, McQuaid, Pearson. Booked: Blake-Tracy, Scorer: Parker 36, Hawkins 38, Fryatt 51, Siddons 73. McQuaid 76

Dunstable: Hall, Closo, Ward, Collins, Andriopoulos (E Amu 72), Yong, Ladipo (Hudson 62), Osei-bonsu, A Amu, Lamptey (Williams 84), Williams. Subs: E Amu, Hudson, Vracui

Attendance: 699

Excellent game by the sounds of it, shame the attendance was so low for a team playing so well and topping the table, what do people think is stopping people attending?  :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

Think it's all down to 3 factors. The pound against the dollar. Brexit and the rising tides on the east coast.

Just hope Stephen can soldier on despite these factors that he cannot control and keeps giving the paying public what they want.

Attendances aren’t where we’d hope, but they are about 40% up on last year, which would normally be considered a pretty successful annual increase.

Factors that are keeping people away have been rehashed a lot, but rather than look at ticket cost alone, matchday cost has gone up significantly. A seated ticket, two cups of coffee and burger doesn’t give you much change of £20. Under Buster was closer to £16.

40% increase inspite of roughly 20/25% increase in matchday costs. I’d say the football is doing a good job of bringing people in all things considered.

I won't be the last one, someone else will voice an opinion that doesn't suit, then bye bye..  :red card:

Good game , and a job done without much physical stress, and reasonable results elsewhere , downside was Dunstable arrived with 3 fans, they may of had a few pints, but did not deserve what some Lynn fans directed at them. Indeed they should have been welcomed and applauded for their loyal support of a team in difficult times. They were of the right humor until the incident and were absolutely no problem at all. ...Think!!!!! ....

On this one Gris, I think 2 Home games in a week had an effect through the cost of £24 plus extras (coffee/tea, beer, burger etc.) - Yes, I know, the extra £3 for the Hereford game as well but please exclude that factor.

as they took down there flags at half time, a few fans sang " more flags then supporters " one guy took offence to it, came over pointed his umbrella and started swearing the supporters followed by his two mates, then the stewards came over, he wanted us lynn fans to move and carried on giving the stewards grief to the point one rightly lost his cool. the lynn fans only gave a little banter in song and he took offence. that's why they kept singing, the bloke was litrally swearing in people's faces, fair play to the stewards for handling this

A couple of seasons ago we would have huffed and puffed against someone like Dunstable. Yesterday we cut them apart and Tuesday we came back against the mighty Hereford. Credit and respect to this group of players, the manager, the chairman and everyone else associated with the club. A great week to be a linnet.
