Match Preview: King’s Lynn (H)

posted in: First Team News | 0

Bradford (Park Avenue) are back in league action at the Horsfall Stadium this Saturday as they host high-flyers King’s Lynn Town.

Avenue ended their three-match goal drought at Harrogate in the County Cup on Monday, and will now be hoping they can turn that into a victory as they return to league action at the weekend.

Aston Villa loanee Isiah Bazeley found the net as Bradford were defeated by two goals to one against their higher-level opponents, and manager Mark Bower has delved into the loan market once more this week to strengthen his midfield.

Telford midfielder Jonathan Royle has arrived on a temporary deal, initially until the 1st of January, looking to change the fortunes of a side who are now on a four-match losing streak.

And for the second weekend in a row, they face opposition recently promoted to the National League North, though King’s Lynn have fared much better than last Saturday’s victors Kettering.

They currently find themselves second in the division, behind only the as-yet unbeaten York, and yet to taste defeat at home this term.

The Linnetts have however drawn their last three league matches at home 2-2, but after a winless run dating back to the 3rd of September, they ran out 4-2 winners at Kidderminster Harriers last Saturday.

Avenue will assess injuries to both Germaine Agustien, who hobbled out of the warm up at Kettering, and Josh Heaton, who was replaced in the second half.
