City’s season hinges on Alfreton once again.
Lincoln City’s home credentials will be tested tomorrow when FA Trophy quarter finalists Dover are the visitors to Sincil Bank.
It’s then Alfreton for a re run of the postponed Christmas fixture, then Bristol Rovers (do they still do those lovely pasties?) both away followed by Chester at home in a run of games described by the Echo as season defining. They could be right.
Ironically it may be the Alfreton fixture that could provide a turning point, if the Imps can get a win there it might banish the demons that have dogged City’s on the road efforts and set the scene for a play off push.
On the other hand a loss may well herald an earlier than expected end to all hopes of success this term.
Either way it’s going to be a tough start to February and City could do with a return of the Christmas form to go with the snowy weather and get us all dreaming of Wembley.
Incidentally I see that the “Vanarama Big Day Out” has been announced whereby you can buy an advance Early Bird ticket through City for the play off final at Wembley for just £10 or rather a voucher redeemable for a ticket and amazingly once you have your voucher there will be nothing more to pay.
Dare you tempt providence by buying one though? It seems too good to be true. See www.redimps.co.uk for details.
