Spennymoor at home
« on: January 04, 2020, 12:05:30 PM »
Big game today and feel it’s gonna be a toughie.  Jarv will be a big miss, but Richards being in spanking form should cover.  Carey in for Kelly looks almost like for like.  Can see there only being 1 goal in it either way.  Going for us 2-1 with a crowd of 1300 plus. 

York have a what looks difficult trip to Southport and Chester also won’t find it easy at Guiseley.  Interesting day ahead

Spennymore looked pretty big and direct on the highlights of their win at Darlington so another test for us.  Will IC keep the same shape as we started vs Boston or will he mix it up with Jarvis being out?  Hopefully a chance for Payne to prove he is worth more minutes?  I personally think the lad has been unlucky not to feature more but given how well all of the squad have done this season whatever eleven is picked there are going to be some capable lads missing out.  Not sure how far away Fryatt is from being in the match day squad but would be good if he was available for next weeks trip to Ebbsfleet with Ward being cup tied. 

Fingers crossed that the pitch has recovered from Boxing Day having had a chance to dry out a bit.

3 - 0 with Adam Marriott scoring 2 and Ross Barrows getting the 1st.

Spennymoor look quite ordinary  in the 1st half and lost their most influential player No3 to a  :red card: for a "last man foul" on Hendo on the edge of the box after 15mins. They changed shape to 4-4-1 and tried to strike on the break with little threat.

Ross Barrows was immense in defence again alongside Tom Ward who replaced Rory McAuley before the start as he picked up an injury during warm-up. Alfie Payne started alongside the two Centre Backs with Aaron Jones and Nathan Fox in their usual role of Wing Backs. Jordan Richards in midfield broke up potential attacks and started counters alongside Chris Henderson who again made himself familiar with every blade of grass in midfield, wings and penalty area. Spenney tried to contain Michael Gash and he was not as mobile as usual but Adam Marriott made a nuisance of himself all afternoon and ended with two fine goals in the 2nd half. All 3 Subs were used and brought fresh legs and different attacking options, especially Ryan Hawkins as the Right Wing/Wing Back. It was nice to see Harry Limb get some time on the pitch and he had a few pops at goal.

Spennymoor started the 2nd half a little brighter than the 1st but it petered out after our 2nd goal, although they still played on trying to salvage something but got nowhere near the goal to threaten Pedro who made some easy saves from soft and long shots.

My MOM was again between Richards and Barrows, albeit Adam Marriott increased his tally by two.

What a time to be a Linnet. A comfortable 3-0 win in front of 1400+ against a bruising team, (though their no.9 showed his class with that control of the air-ball). The team running rampant in the second half, after a tricky first half of methodically breaking down their two banks of defence after the sending off. They had the patience and the skill to breakthrough Spennymoor’s rearguard action, and after the 1st goal went in the game was as good as over, with Lynn marauding around the pitch at will. Marriott’s two finishes were class, but for me Richards was MOM; he was in such control and seemed to ghost in to intercept half a dozen passes.

Questions coming out of the game:

1. Was that substitution and ovation Marriott’s farewell?

2. What team will be put out at Ebbsfleet? (Though with the number of injuries, there’s not that much scope for rotation anyway)

Was a comfortable day at the office for Lynn without ever really getting out of 3rd gear.  Ward did ok in place of McAuley who did his calf in the warm up.

Like WLM said Hendo was everywhere and have to agree that Barrows was MOTM. Immense yet again and cherry on the icing on the cake was the opener.

Thought Spennymoor were very ordinary with a direct style that rarely, if ever threatened us. Big ball forward then looking to hook it on and turn us around.   Think at Lynn we are use to a more cultured style of play than that.

Great crowd in. It’s growing.  Downside McAuley injury, followed by Fox injury and Gashy looking like he was playing on one leg.

Oh and how did Carey manage to hit the bar from a foot in the first half ?  :dontknow:

Yes Mallard, Carey’s did look unbelievable.  He was just unlucky, really.  IF we have to change the team, and we all hope we don’t, I could see Carey moving forward into that slot and doing pretty well....Just a thought....
