King’s Lynn Town Ladies manager Alec Marshall was full of praise for his side after losing their penultimate game of the season to high-flying Haringey.Lynn lost the reverse fixture – Marshall’s second game in the dugout – 14-0, so a 4-2 defeat showed the vast improvement made by the side in a space of a few months.Marshall said: “I’ve got nothing but praise today. Yes it’s a loss, but it just shows the improvements we’ve made, the steps we’ve made and that we will go until the end.”Today we showed fight, and determination and proved to many that we can compete, even when the tides are against us.”I’d like to thank the fans today, they were incredible and spurred us on to come back before the break. “The ladies did me proud today after a tough few days for myself, losing a close friend of mine.”We have one more game to go on Sunday when are expecting a good Luton side to turn up. “We are excited for our last game to be here at The Walks because this is a special place, so let’s pack it out.”Despite being low on numbers, Lynn still fielded a side with two substitutes. Lynn started the game well, holding a good defensive line, keeping the ball and looking good at times.Haringey were awarded a penalty 13 minutes before the break and then doubled their advantage 11 minutes later. This sparked Lynn into life with goals in quick succession from Libby Scott and Jess Napper taking Lynn in level at half-time.Lynn came out of the blocks slowly at the start of the second period and was made to pay the price.Haringey added a third three minutes after the restart and netted a fourth from 35 yards to restore their two-goal advantage.Lynn refused to give up and kept pushing for goals in the remainder of the game.
