Match report v Gosport
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:25:16 PM »
Lynn equalled their biggest Southern League away win when they defeated relegation strugglers Gosport Borough, since Bedworth United were on the end of a 6-0 thrashing when Lynn visited in January 1974.

Lynn, with an unchanged team from that which knocked five past Dunstable Town, took the lead on five minutes, Dion Frary heading home Michael Clunan's free kick for his first goal for the club.

Joe Lea tested Alex Street in the Lynn goal but in their next attack, Ryan Hawkins dispossessed a home defender and slotted home into the bottom right corner to double Lynn's lead.

Michael Gash had a goal disallowed for offside and then Lea got his name on the scoresheet for Gosport on 35 minutes, latching onto Craig McAllister's ball inside the box to give the home side hope. Lynn restored their two-goal advantage in first half injury time as Hawkins converted a threaded pass into the area.

Seven minutes after the restart Hawkins completed his hat trick and then Ryan Fryatt added a fifth on 57 minutes.

Stephane Bombelenga hit the bar with a free kick from some 30 yards for Gosport but Lynn resumed their scoring when Gash tapped home a low cross into the box for Lynn's sixth. Substitute Tom Siddons added a seventh in stoppage time.

Gosport: O'Flaherty, Watts, Crucery (Sharp h/t), Smith, Wakely (Suraci 25), Sanders, Brookes, Hall, McAllister, Lea, Bombelenga (76). Subs: Rawkins, Hackson, Mayes, Sharp, Suraci. Scorer: Lea 35

Lynn: Street, Norman, Blake-Tracy, Frary, Fryatt, Jarvis (Siddons 68), Clunan, Parker (McQuaid 73), Gash, Hawkins (Hilliard 59), Lappin. Subs: Siddons, Hilliard, McQuaid. Scorers: Frary 5, Hawkins 14, 45+1, 52, Fryatt 57 Gash 81, Siddons 90+1

Attendance: 241

Anyone getting the feeling that the slow burn from the start of the season has now well and truly ignited ?  Scoring goals for fun, tight (ish) at the back, Creative and hard working in the engine room.  Goals coming from all different player.  I wonder who will be the first player to hit 20 goals for us ?

Have to say all credit to the lad Frary. I for one thought he was well out of his depth at step 3. Even dropping back down on loan to step 4 and then further down to step 6, but never let his head drop or wanted away the boy stuck at it.  All credit to him.

What a tremendous win away from home :worship: this will definitely send shivers through slough and even Hereford. the gap is narrowing ever closer and I for one wouldn't rule out a close call at the seasons end. once again congrats to all the players / chairman/staff  :clap: :clap:

Just got to repeat last post "13 games to go" "13 games to go"  who would have thought at the start of the season Lynn would be top.
Do players get bonuses for top 3 positions ?
Amazing all is possible Slough 6pts Hereford 3pts why not ? :clap:

Tremendous result, more so for the GD which over the past few weeks needed a boost to get in line with others for now. Still think Hereford will wrap up the title 'comfortably'. Should be top by the time Lynn next play, still with two games in hand, and not counting game against Lynn, they've only got 4 games to play against current top 8 compared to Lynn 5 and still have Gosport x2 and Dunstable to boost their GD. Next best is sealing 2nd, and home advantage all the way in the play offs which would be HUGE, and last few weeks I feel have put that in Lynn own hands now as Slough look like stumbling more with their fixture pile up.

Great win, the team always play well, and make a lot of chances. Earlier in the season, they were not going in.
They certainly are now, we expect goals to come.

Is Ryan Hawkins our promised 20+ goals a season striker. I hope so and Michael gash not far behind him.

Where does this leave Leon Mettam? Sub striker behind Tom Siddons?
