Puritans suffer their first away defeat of the season

Banbury's 30-year run without a victory at Kings Lynn never looked in danger of being broken as the team slipped to their second defeat of the season.

The team was missing Greg Kaziboni, injured, and Lee Henderson, suspended. Charlie Hawtin joined up with Charlie Wise at centre back.

The home team took the lead in the fifth minute after good link-up play between Jarvis and Blake-Tracy, the latter allowed too much room on the left. Whilst his cross was inch perfect for Gash his shot was less so but still ended up in the net off Hawtin's foot

Further chances fell Kings Lynn's way with Banbury turning possession in a good area on the right into a clear run at goal for Limb but Harding saved well to his left. Gash turned provider with a cross picking out an unmarked Hawkins who probably should have done better than head wide.

Banbury's best chance of the half came in the last minute when a Rasulo free kick from 20 yards out was deflected onto the bar by the Kings Lynn defensive wall.

Any hope of turning the game round were made a lot harder when Kings Lynn netted a second in the 56th minute. Hawkins was allowed too much space after a free kick on the left and Wise upended him in the box to concede penalty. Clunan's shot was high to Harding's left with just enough to power to beat him.

It was soon 3-0 as Limb also found room on the left and drilled a cross shot high into the goal.

To be fair Banbury did not let their heads drop and in the 72nd minute a Shamsi shot came back off the post, Banbury retained possession and Rasulo netted from inside the box.

However, despite some pressure there were no more clear-cut chances to leave the home team celebrating a well deserved first home league win of the campaign. Banbury drop outside the play-off places on goal difference.
