Setchell Seeks Revenge
Gary Setchell

....Town, is desperate to make S & L Corby pay for damaging Lynn’s promotion hopes last season.

Lynn will arrive at Occupation Road tomorrow to revisit the scene of a remarkable fight back by the Northamptonshire outfit during the corresponding fixture last March.

The Linnets raced into a 2-0 lead inside 7 minutes and missed a catalogue of chances to kill the game off.

But, to Setchell’s horror, Lynn’s defence collapsed to gift their hosts a 3-2 lead before Jamie Thurlbourne salvaged a point with a late equaliser.

Setchell said: “The fixture at Corby last year, as well as the Cogenhoe United game, were the ones I believe cost us the title.

“We were winning 2-0 and it should have been more, so to end the game as a draw was a big disappointment.

“We only lost the league by two points so it was a costly slip-up.”

Setchell is confident his side can banish the memories of the Tuesday night blip.

“This season, we have managed to pick up wins at the places where we lost last year and our away form has been very good.

“I mean, to concede only six goals away from home shows the improvement that we have made.

“It will be a very difficult game. It will be physical and it’s going to be their cup final with their biggest gate of the season.

“The pitch is sloped which makes it very difficult to play football on so we will have to change our game to adapt to that.

“We just need to make sure that we turn up mentally prepared for the game and maintain the way we have been playing.”

Left-sided midfielder Ben Coe has joined Ridgeons League Division One side Fakenham Town on a month’s loan.

“Ben is only 20-years-old and by no means do we want to lose him at the club,” said Setchell.

“When he has come on as a substitute he has done well, but by his own admissions he knows that when he has started games he maybe hasn’t done enough.

“This will be a good opportunity for him to get a month of first team action.”

Full-backs Jordan Yong and Ashley Deeney will both have fitness tests ahead of the game, while striker Liam Harrold will also return to the squad.

“Both Jordan and Ashley are 50/50, while Liam will be in the squad this week,” said Setchell.

“Both Liam and Jack are big lads and when you go away from home or are playing against physical sides you need those type of players.

“By no means is Liam surplus to requirements at the club.”

Setchell feels his side are well-equipped in their quest for promotion as they enter the final third of the campaign.

“We are almost at full strength. Ross Watson and Jack Defty are both back and we are looking extremely strong.

“The points we have already got in the bag means we should surpass last season’s total of 103.

“If we do this, we are not going to be a million miles away from the title.

“Apart from the silly draw against Sleaford and the loss to Long Buckby, we have done very well. We are still in with a very good chance of winning the title.”
