Tokyngton Manor 2 Kings Langley 5

KINGS Langley maintained their impressive recent form with a dominant second half display at Tokyngton Manor.

With the game tied 1-1 at half-time, Kings came out after the interval with all guns blazing and fired home four goals to take the three points.

Despite dominating the first 15 minutes, Kings gifted the hosts a goal when Colin Wilson conceded a penalty.

The league’s leading scorer, Edmond Protain, duly converted and although Kings picked up their game again, it was not until just before half-time that they levelled.

Gary Wallace’s header hit the bar and Craig Lynskey stooped to head home and restore parity.

Kings continued to press after the break, and Lynskey headed in his second after Anton Dejean had blocked Steve Noonan’s effort.

The goalscorer then turned provider with a cross-field pass that Sam Warrell buried with aplomb.

However, just as the visitors were threatening to run riot, Manor found a foothold back in the game as Warren Williams capitalised on a midfield mix-up to finish calmly.

Kings were not to be denied the points, though, and Warrell helped make sure of the win as his free-kick was flicked home by Steve Noonan.

Lynskey then completed his hat-trick to make it 5-2, before Kings’ Jimmy Armstrong was denied by a fine penalty save from Dejean.
