We were better team, says Lynn boss

King's Lynn boss Keith Webb warned his men not to feel sorry for themselves after a brave FA Trophy exit at the Abbey Stadium.

King's Lynn boss Keith Webb warned his men not to feel sorry for themselves after a brave FA Trophy exit at the Abbey Stadium.

Webb insists Lynn can emerge stronger from trading toe-to-toe with their Blue Square Premier hosts.

“I've already told them - if I see any heads down they need their backsides kicked,” he said. “I'm disappointed that people will look at five and think we we're murdered. It doesn't tell the whole story of the game. We can take a lot of positives.

Between the two penalty boxes I felt we were the better team - it was at either end that we didn't have enough. The higher you go the more ruthless it gets. The difference was their finishing - especially towards the end when we are chasing the game, leaving spaces at the back, and they are good enough to exploit them.”

Webb felt United's second close to the interval was rough justice on his side.

“It was a kick in the teeth,” he admitted. “I wouldn't have been too disappointed to go in one down. I thought they had a fella offside in the six yard box. You can say to me he wasn't the scorer, but he's stood in the middle of the goal so you have to question what the rules are.

“The first one we conceded was poor because we spoke about how dangerous they are from set pieces. Second half, we still had a couple of chances that went begging. They go up the other end and score - that is the difference.”

Webb and his players saluted the efforts of Lynn's travelling fans at full time.

“They were magnificent,” he said. “I've got nothing but praise for them. The support was superb and the players responded. I think their appreciation at the end showed they could see we gave everything. That vocal support said it all for me.”
