ROBINS HALT LYNN’S CHARGE

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTH - By Colin Car­pen­ter

FROME Town pro­duced an ex­cel­lent, hard work­ing team per­for­mance that frus­trated ta­ble top­ping Kings Lynn Town and with a lit­tle more luck, the hosts might just have snatched the vic­tory late on.

As the match started, Frome looked the more likely to open the scor­ing with Dar­ren Jef­feries clean through and just robbed by Alex Street in the tenth minute, while Jon Davies also saw a shot blocked.

But as the half pro­gressed, Kings Lynn started to warm to their task but gen­er­ally failed to trou­ble the home de­fence, and with chances few and far be­tween, those that did arise were gen­er­ally hit wide of the mark.

Kings Lynn had a goal dis­al­lowed in the 48th minute as Leon Met­tam was ad­judged off­side af­ter a free-kick, but they then started to look much more like a side at the top of the ta­ble, gen­er­ally dom­i­nat­ing pos­ses­sion and ter­ri­tory.

But, to their credit, the home de­fence were well up to their task, and apart from a down­ward header hit­ting the base of the post in the 73rd minute, Frome were never really trou­bled.

They could per­haps have won it late on as Jef­feries shot just the wrong side of the post af­ter a mazy run into the box. STAR MAN: Joe Raynes (Frome Town) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
