FOOTBALL: An injury plagued Linnets failed to follow-up Saturday’s fine 4-0 victory over Chippenham when they drew 1-1 with Kings Langley Tuesday night.
In a game of few chances, the visitors took the lead when Dan Quigley was robbed of possession and Josh Chamberlain powered the ball through the hands of Alex Street.
Jacek Zielonka nearly equalised minutes later, but was prevented by a superb save from Danny Bowness.
A half time dressing down from manager Gary Setchell saw Lynn sent out 10 minutes early.
To the delight of a subdued Walks crowd, Lynn’s equaliser arrived on 65 minutes. After a quick throw, Michael Clunan clipped the ball to Kurtis Raven and with his back to goal found the bottom corner.
Zielonka drew another fine save and the resulting corner saw Dan Quigley’s header saved and Matty Castellan’s effort cleared off the line for another corner.
Skipper Sam Gaughran’s powerful header looked to have hit the target, but unfortunately it rippled the side netting.
Saturday had seen Lynn’s best home display of the season, blowing away Chippenham 4-0 and ending their unbeaten away record.
The gloss was taken off the win though by a serious looking knee injury to Lee Stevenson.
Debutant Kurtis Revan opened the scoring after 29 minutes and the lead was doubled just before the hour-mark when Stevenson crossed for Sam Gaughran to slam the ball home.
Jacek Zielonka then intercepted a clearance by the visiting goalkeeper to round him and slot into the unguarded net.
A few minutes later, a long raking pass from Stevenson released Dylan Edge and the Linnets youngster laid the ball off for Michael Clunan to score the fourth.
