King`s Lynn Town followed up their victory at Evo-Stik League South Premier leaders Hereford FC last Saturday with a hard-fought win against play-off contenders Slough Town at The Walks on Tuesday night.

In front of a crowd of 752, what turned out to be the only goal of the game came after 64 minutes when Michael Clunan’s free-kick was flicked on by Michael Gash and Tom Ward scored following a goalmouth scramble.

The win lifts second-placed Lynn to within four points of the Bulls.

Royston Town`s excellent first season at this level continues to impress and the Crows are now just three points off a top five spot after a 5-1 hammering of Merthyr Town at Garden Walk.

It was an especially good night for Royston striker Adam Marriott, who netted four times, giving them a 22nd minute lead.

Owain Jones` penalty pulled the Martyrs back on level terms just 3 minutes later, but Adam Murray sent the Crows into the break ahead with a second on the half-hour mark.

And the second period belonged to Marriott, who added three more in the 79th, 83rd and 85th minutes.

Bottom-markers Gosport Borough made the 264-mile round trip to face nineteenth-placed Bishop’s Stortford after the original fixture was called off 30 minutes before kick-off.

And the Hampshire side returned empty-handed, despite taking a 23rd minute lead through former Portsmouth striker Rowan Vine.

Jordan Westcott equalised 11 minutes after the break, and the Blues won it with Darren Foxley`s 70th minute effort.

The games at Kettering Town and Biggleswade Town were postponed.
