DESPITE the decisive loss against Gloucester City, Avenue go again this week visiting league leaders King's Lynn Town on Saturday.

The 15 point gap maybe unreachable for Mark Bower's men but they will still want to upset the apple-cart when they travel to The Walks.

Here’s all the news, analysis and insight that you need ahead of Saturday’s Vanarama National League North 3pm kick-off.

Form Guide

The hosts have had an amazing season since gaining promotion from the Southern League Premier Division Central last term.

Lynn are firm favourites to win the league after shooting to the summit of the table with three games in hand over nearest challengers York City who sit a point behind.

Prior to last week's shock 2-0 defeat against Kidderminster, The Linnets had gone 14 matches unbeaten in the league.

It is the polar opposite for Bradford, propping the rest of the table after only gaining a lowly 14 points from their 30 fixtures.

That 2-1 defeat to Gloucester means the bottom side need a miracle to survive having not picked up a win since the start of December.

Bower’s thoughts: We have a chance

"Even with us, against the top three over the last few months, we've pushed Boston, York and King's Lynn all the way and only suffered narrow defeats.

"Not many people will expect it, but we know we're capable of getting a result at King's Lynn if we do our jobs properly.

"Their midfielders lay on chances for their two forwards, who do take them.

"Any win, 3-2 or 1-0, is the same, as long as you're scoring more than the opposition, that's the aim."

Team News

Bower will be able to welcome back Stelios Demetriou to his 16-man squad after the left back served his one-match suspension against Gloucester.

Ian Culverhouse has named the same starting 11 for his side's last two fixtures with Adam Marriot and Michael Gash being the biggest threats, bagging 38 goals between them this campaign

Possible line-ups

King's Lynn: Street, Jones, Fox, Jarvis (C), Smith, McAuley, Power, Richards, Gash, Marriot, Henderson

BPA: Nicholson, Toulson, Priestley, Hughes, Demetriou, Clee (C), Hibbs, Hall, Hurst, Knight, Johnson

Battle to watch: Marriot v Clee

There has been no stopping Marriot in the last two seasons with the lethal frontman netting 52 goals, 28 coming this season.

A frail Bradford defence of Billy Priestley and Liam Hughes could be in for a damaging afternoon's work.

Avenue's only shinning light from the Gloucester defeat was Nicky Clee who again looked a class above.

If the 36-year-old's team are going to get anything out of this they will need the midfielder to be on top form.

Odds: King's Lynn 1/5, BPA 9/1, Draw 11/2

Head to Head

The pair have only met each other and one other occasion which was the reverse fixture back in November.

Although the home side took the lead twice through Lewis Knight and Oli Johnson strikes, a couple of late goals from Marriot and Sonny Carey stole the spoils for the visitors.
