City aim to put their dismal away form and a dismal week behind them.
With all that’s been going on I applaud anyone making the trip to Bristol tomorrow. I’ve been a couple of times and its difficult place to find success particularly after the week we’ve all had.
Grant Brown has been hinting to the Echo of a change of direction tactically for away fixtures, starting with conceding less. It’s not rocket science really. It’s often said in football you’ve got to earn the right to play and thinking about it logically City may have been far too gung ho from the start and need to feel their way in to a game before launching all-out attack, much though we like that approach.
There’s also the small matter of the Imps abysmal disciplinary record :-
"We have conceded a few goals on the road recently," admitted Brown.
"However, those games have seen situations where players have been sent off and such.
"We do need to look at how we are playing and the win over Dover showed that we can grind out results.
"If we want to get promotion then we need to show we can play a different style.
"It is good that we can play attacking football and have scored some goals, but you need that other side of your game as well”
It’s nice to have some football to talk about after this most depressing week and we have to hope the players have managed to isolate themselves from off field matters.
I’m going to tempt providence and say I’d be amazed if City return to Lincoln with any points but we could certainly do with a boost.
