Imp Waides in with a confident prediction.
Waide Fairhurst was in ebullient mood when interviewed after the recent home win against Forest Green Rovers, predicting a successful season ahead even mentioning the forbidden “P” word.
"As a team we are a good set of lads," he said.
"We are a good team and we can be up there this season.
"I know, without a shadow of a doubt, there is nobody to fear this season.
"They (Forest Green) are supposed to be money eaters, but they are not better than us."
Fairhurst revealed his dismay at not starting the first two league fixtures and vowing to demand the manager pencil his name in first on every team sheet with his performances.
Certainly his brace against the Green will be uppermost in Gary Simpson’s mind when preparing the team for the forthcoming bank holiday double header starting away at Cambridge United where there is bound to be a good number of Imps making the relatively short journey. This is followed by the visit of Wrexham on Monday. A daunting start by anyone’s standard.
If City can continue in the same vein as the last three fixtures Imps fans really will start to believe that the previous frankly awful campaigns can be consigned to the history books and the club can start to rekindle its lacklustre image.
