FOOTBALL: A second-half equaliser from Michael Gash earned King’s Lynn Town a 1-1 draw at Aldershot Town on Tuesday, writes Lewis Hawkins.
It ended Lynn’s losing streak and saw them close the gap on the three teams just above them in the National League table.
The Linnets started the brighter and should have had a penalty when Gash was kicked in the head when jumping up for a header. Shortly after Michael Clunan sent a volley over the bar before the Shots opened the scoring when Ricky Miller curled the ball into the top corner of Theo Richardson’s net from the edge of the box.
Lynn turned up the pressure in the second half and were rewarded after manager Ian Culverhouse made a double switch on the hour mark. Alex Kiwomya and Michael Gyasi came on with both making an instant impact. Gyasi played in Kiwomya and the winger pulled the ball back for Gash to poke the ball under the goalkeeper to bring the scores level.
Lynn had a chance to win it at the end but Tyler Denton’s strike went over the bar.
The Linnets squandered a 2-0 lead at AFC Halifax Town on Saturday. Gash and Sonny Carey put them in control but the hosts hit back to win 4-2.
Lynn play host to Dagenham & Redbridge tomorrow and then welcome Stockport County to The Walks on Tuesday.
