Preview | King's Lynn (H)

By Sean Beeby

Gloucester City host table toppers King's Lynn Town this afternoon, with Steven King’s men looking to continue their four match unbeaten run with three points (KO 3pm).

Tommy Widdrington’s King's Lynn side are on a three match winning streak in the league, something that City will be looking to put to an end.

City earned a point on the road away to Chester on Tuesday night, while the Linnets cruised to a 3-1 win over Banbury United.

City can close the gap from the top to just four points with a win against the league leaders, here’s how the two sides have fared in their most recent outings:


Centre back Josh Coulson scored twice as King's Lynn comfortably beat Banbury United on Tuesday night, a side City drew 1-1 with one month ago in Oxfordshire.

Meanwhile, City fell short to a late equaliser away to Chester, with Kieran Phillips scoring his sixth goal in four matches, a player in red-hot form under Steven King.

King's Lynn are at the summit of the table, whereas City sit fifth after a strong run of games, something they’ll be very keen to continue.

Key Players:

King's Lynn’s goals have been fairly evenly spread in the league so far, with Gold Omotayo and Jordan Ponticelli both netting five goals in 13 matches, with Josh Barrett scoring four goals in 10 games.

Those three players pose the biggest threat to City and Steven King will have to organise his defence immaculately to limit King's Lynn’s chances.

Manager’s Thoughts:

On King's Lynn: “They’ve had a great start, they’ve got a striker that I brought into this country from

Switzerland, so I know them well.

“I think they’re advanced of where we are, so anything we can possibly get from that game will be a

bonus in my opinion.”

On City’s recent form: “I’m over the moon with the way the boys have reacted since coming in, ten

points from 12 is a fantastic start by this group of players, and we will only get stronger as we go


“But as for the game on Saturday, like I said if we can get something from the game, I think we’ve

done well, considering where we’ve come from, where we’re at, and the players we’ve got available

and not available.”

Tickets can be bought online in advance here for this afternoon's game, with Adults paying £10 online as opposed to £12 on the gate, and Kids going for a Quid.
