King’s Lynn Town must be prepared to win in any way possible if they are to gain promotion, midfielder Ryan Jarvis has said.

The Linnets were well below-par in the second half of Tuesday night’s Southern League encounter against Bishop’s Stortford at the Walks after coasting into a two-goal lead in the opening 17 minutes.

It took striker Grant Holt all of nine minutes to open his Linnets goal account on his full debut before Ryan Hawkins doubled their advantage shortly afterwards.

But after Freddy Moncur had reduced the arrears for the visitors 19 minutes before the interval, Lynn slowly began to lose control.

After the game, former Norwich City star Jarvis said: “It was a scrappy game and sometimes we are going to have to be prepared to win ugly.

“I don’t think we made the right decisions and we try to play football in the wrong areas of the pitch, but the main thing is we’ve won the game and got the three points.

“If we wanna be up their at the end of the season we aren’t going to play well every game, but if we can win when we’re not playing well and to our standards then that’s a good sign.”
