After we beat Alfreton my mind turned to the Kings Lynn tie. I was concerned that the last time we visited them we lost 3 - 0. I needn't have worried because when I looked at the team that Kiddy played that day I could not recognise it from the team that plays today. It made me realise just how empty the cupboard was with injuries and form. More importantly Kings Lynn would not have experienced the team that plays today in both personnel and style. I have a feeling that Kings Lynn are about to be in for a massive shock.

I feel very positive about Sunday. All the pressure is on the Linnets. Imagine playing a one-off game for a play-off final against an opposition that finished 24 points below you. That's pressure!!

Interesting as of 9.50am this morning on twitter, the Kings lynn chairman has revealed the current ticket sales are 1240
Kings lynn - 689
Harriers - 551
That is quite unbelievable considering they put their tickets out before our game even kicked off on Tuesday. Hopefully our support can take away their home advantage going in to Sunday!

That is awful from them, Chester sold out their semi final already.
Think we'll take around 750, the kick off time and treck will put a few people off.
Looked at Chester on football groiundf guide, they give the stand behind goal as extra allocation for bigger away followings, so 400 added to what ever they give which is what? 300? bit of a worry on tickets available who ever we play next if we get through. Was hoping Gloucester would get through.

Tickets booked and overnight accommodation booked. Travelling down Saturday evening and staying quite close to the ground. Hopefully find somewhere reasonable for pre-match brekkie.

Wonder if Brackley will make it to three figures for their trip to Chester?

How many season ticket holders do we have this year? Is it still around 1000? You'd imagine the vast majority of them, even those who don't normally travel away, would want to attend a final especially as it won't be too far too travel.

Think it is around that HarryErr, be like a golden ticket scenario like it was for the Stourbridge fa cup game back in 2015. We'd take 1300 to Chester IMO if allocated, maybe 1500. So a lot will miss out, Same with Brackley.

Just looking at our starting eleven for the game played at Kings Lynn in November, only four of the starting line up are likely to start, Foulkes, Richards, Hemmings and Brown. Penny and Byrne were not in the squad and Morgs was on the bench. Leesley, Morrison & Dibble weren't at the club and Lissimore hadn't made the breakthrough into the squad. Completely different team in many ways, thankfully.
