We turn our attentions to the weekend action with a full and in-depth preview of Moors’ National League North trip to The Walks Stadium.
King’s Lynn Town v Spennymoor Town
Saturday 18th March 2023, 3pm
National League North
The Walks Stadium
Things are starting to heat up in the battle for the National League North title and King’s Lynn Town will be hoping they can recapture their very best form during the closing weeks of the campaign.
Tommy Widdrington’s side have tasted victory just once in their last five outings to allow AFC Fylde to sit top of the pile by two points ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures.
However, The Linnets don’t lose many games and remain well placed with six of their remaining matches to be played on home turf where they have been beaten just twice all term.
Saturday’s game will also be important for the hosts in terms of ensuring they can prepare for next weekend’s potentially pivotal face-off with AFC Fylde at The Walks Stadium.
One To Watch
Gold Omatayo is running in to some good form as the business end of the season arrives with the striker having helped himself to three goals in the last six games.
A 6ft 4ins front man is a big threat as the focal point of The Linnets’ attack and will need to be well marshalled by the Moors defence at The Walks Stadium on Saturday.
Head To Head
Saturday’s game will be the fourth competitive meeting between the two clubs and just the second time that Moors have made the trip to The Walks Stadium.
King’s Lynn came out on top when Moors last visited, enjoying a 3-0 triumph in January 2020 to follow on from the 2-2 draw that had been played out at The Brewery Field in September.
The sides were also forced to share the points when they met in County Durham back in February when Moors twice came from behind in another 2-2 draw.
On The Whistle
Niall Smith will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s big game at The Walks, and he will be assisted by Paul Burnham and Murray Grant.
Moors fans can buy their tickets online in advance via King’s Lynn’s Online Tickets Portal, while there will also be availability from their Ticket Office ahead of kick-off on the day of the game.
Don’t panic if you’re not able to make the epic trek to King’s Lynn this weekend because you can enjoy another full live commentary on Durham OnAir with Mark Simpson and Billy Shackleton.
We’ll be live from 2.50pm on Saturday, with supporters able to access the live coverage online, via the Durham OnAir app, on DAB radio or on Freeview Channel 277.
King’s Lynn have been installed as 4/6 favourites for three points on Saturday, with Moors priced up at 10/3 for the victory and the draw available at odds of 12/5.
