King’s Lynn Town face a long haul to south Wales next weekend as they bid to get back to winning ways following the postponement of their weekend game at The Walks.

The Linnets were due to take on Slough Town, but the pitch, affected by overnight frost, failed an inspection and the match was postponed.

It means Ian Culverhouse’s team will have to go to Merthyr Town on Saturday as they attempt to erase the painful memories of their last game – a 5-2 mauling at Farnborough Town on December 9.

While the Linnets were left kicking their heels, their nearest challengers, Kettering Town, dropped points, drawing 0-0 at Hitchin. Kettering are now three points behind with a game in hand. Third-placed Weymouth are four points off the top after a 2-1 win at Banbury.

The team to watch are fifth-placed Hereford – without a league game because of FA Trophy duties – who are nine points behind Lynn but have five games in hand.
