King's Lynn Town 2 Redditch United 1
Saturday 20th August
Lynn won their first league game of the season to make it five points from a possible fifteen.
Sam Gaughran was the only change to Tuesday's starting line-up with Liam Fryatt dropping to the bench.
The Walks outfit could not have wished for a better start with Toby Hilliard breaking through the Redditch back line
in the second minute but he saw his shot well saved by Bradley Catlow. Fortunately the rebound
went to Lee Stevenson whose scuffed shot ended with a looping ball which found the on-loan Shaun McWilliams who nodded home for his first goal for the club.
This, however, turned out to be the only shot on target in a scrappy first half although Lynn looked the more settled.
Both teams lost a player through injury within five minutes of each other, Toby Hilliard being replaced by Dylan Edge and his opposite number
Reece Hales being replaced by Jason Cowley.
There was further injury problems for Lynn soon after the restart when Sam Gaughran came the worse off in a clash with Jazz Luckie, Liam Fryatt getting the call from the bench.
Lynn, now playing into a strong wind on a hard pitch, began to create more of the chances and managed their second shot on target on 58 minutes
from Jacek Zielonka who tried again soon after, his shot being fended out by the hands of Catlow and Leon Mettam headed the rebound over from well inside the box.
The introduction of Reds player manager Darren Byfield on 65 minutes turned the game and it was no surprise when the equaliser came on fifteen minutes later when
Byfield set up Danico Johnson who evaded two challenges and rounded Alex Street before rolling the ball home.
The same pair linked up again soon after but this time Street denied Johnson with a finger-tip save.
Lynn rallied and Matty Castellan's shot was tipped over by Catlow for a corner from which Stevenson centred, Dan Quigley beat Catlow to
the cross and his knock-on allowed Castellan to head home.
Lynn: Street, Castellan, Yong, Gaughran (L Fryatt 50), Quigley, McWilliams, M Clunan (Mills 84), Stevenson, Zielonka, Mettam, Hilliard (Edge 31). Subs: A Clunan, L Fryatt, Mills, Edge, Congreve. Scorers: McWilliams 1, Castellan 87
