United 'Beaten Up' By Visitors

By Russ Watkin

Kings Lynn turn in near faultess display to win comfortably

The Linnets left The Oval with three-points having been too technically strong in all areas of the pitch, an early near post blocked effort from Rowley was punished by Kings Lynn on 10 minutes when Marriott lashed the ball home to give them the lead and they never looked back.
A buoyant Kings Lynn were a delight to watch as they popped the ball around with pace and accuracy stretching the home side in all areas, their great play did not bring a second-goal until late in the first-half when the influential Henderson left his defenders for dead as he placed a high-angled shot wide of Fogg in the home goal to make it 0-2.
Early in the 2nd-half Fogg pulled off a great stop to deny the visitors their third-goal, with Bedworth unable to relieve the pressure they tried to dig in and get some decent possession but they continually faltered in the final-third.
With 10 minutes left The Linnets finally sealed their victory when substitute Hawkins produced a smart finish to make it 0-3, late in the game the home side did have a few half-chances with Noon trying his luck, but the chance created by Hendricks to put Troke in summed United's lack of finishing power, from 14-yards the Bedworth No 10 blasted a shot high over the bar and that was as close as Bedworth had come to goal on a day that had seen United second-best by a long way.
