We’re fully committed says Bob.
It’s the lull before the storm at the moment and if City weren’t involved I dare say it would really be quite exciting. Various clubs are feeling the strain although I can’t say particularly we are although, this being Lincoln City the capacity for calamity is never too far away.
Gary Simpson said in today’s Lincolnshire Echo the team won’t be instructed to go hell for leather for a win:-
“We will not be going gung-ho that is for sure,” he said.
“If you go out all guns blazing you leave yourself in a vulnerable position and we don’t want that or need it.
“Let’s face it. Would you rather be in Stockport’s position or ours?
“There’s no question you would want to go in to the final day with the cushion that we have.
He went on:-
“We need to have a balanced approach and make sure that we have done our job, because if we do, it does not matter what has gone on elsewhere.
“Our fate is in our own hands which is exactly how you want it to be.”
There will be a big following for the Imps at Hyde and the coaches have sold out. Simpson acknowledged the role away fans play but also paid tribute to the home support doing their bit:-
“If they can turn Hyde’s ground into Sincil Bank that would be fabulous,” he said.
“Their support has been terrific just as it was the first time I was here.
“They are the reason I came back. They are pivotal to what we are trying to achieve at this football club now and in the future.
“It would be magnificent to see them turning up in their droves and roaring the lads on. Everybody at the football club appreciates the backing they have given us.”
Meanwhile Chairman Bob Dorrian confirmed on BBC Radio Lincolnshire last night that the club would remain full time come what may. He tempted providence saying it would take a disaster of monumental proportion to force the board into confirming that notion and I think, on this occasion at least fans and board are united in that although of course disaster and Lincoln City are two constant bedfellows.
