FOOTBALL: A difficult debut season in the National League continued for King’s Lynn Town as they fell to another defeat, writes Lewis Hawkins.
It took just eight minutes for Yeovil to find a breakthrough after a mix-up between Tai Fleming and Linnets goalkeeper Theo Richardson. A poor pass from Fleming found its way to Tom Knowles on the edge of the box and, with Richardson not in his goal, the striker simply tapped the ball into the net.
Three minutes later Knowles was back on the scoresheet, with a more impressive strike as he curled the ball into the top corner of Richardson’s goal from outside the penalty area.
The Linnets started to improve and forced Yeovil into a few mistakes. A crucial error came from Yeovil after 23 minutes when Michael Gyasi was brought down in the box. Former Norwich City striker Simeon Jackson stepped up and buried the penalty into the bottom left corner of the net.
The Linnets pressed throughout the game for the equaliser but with too many missed chances it was not to be and all hope was lost in the final 10 minutes when a through ball opened the Lynn defence. That allowed Emmanuel Sonupe the freedom of Huish Park and he slotted the ball under Richardson to finish the game 3-1 in the hosts’ favour.
Lynn make another long trek west to Wales to take on Wrexham tomorrow before welcoming fans back to The Walks on Tuesday when they take on Solihull Moors.
