Ian Culverhouse’s squad is potentially 90 minutes from returning to the National League set-up for the first since the club was re-formed in 2009.

The Linnets’ finished second on a mammoth 100 points behind champions Hereford, but still have it all to do against third-placed Slough Town.

Both clubs did the business in midweek, with Lynn over-powering Weymouth 3-0 in front of 1,223 at The Walks, while Slough eased to a 3-1 home win against Kettering Town.

King’s Lynn officials expect their biggest crowd of the season for a tense Bank Holiday occasion, with extra-time and penalties if the teams are level after 90 minutes.

For those unable to make the game, our Group Football Editor Paddy Davitt is in West Norfolk to bring you live match updates and reaction to what could be a memorable afternoon for the county’s premier football club.

+ The game kicked off 30 minutes later than the scheduled 3pm kick off on police advice, due to the huge crowds at The Walks+
