Five minutes added
Kellermann almost heads in King’s corner but he it just glances off his head.
Big chance for Tshimanga
King plays Tshimanga in on goal, he just has the keeper to beat from close-range but he takes too long and a Lynn defender gets back and manages to get a touch on his shot which loops up and is saved by Jones. How costly that miss could be!
Chance for Khan
Town counter, Tshimanga sends Khan in on goal with just one man to beat, he runs at him, cuts inside on his left but skews it well wide.
Nine minutes remaining.
