Cup exit now just a memory as City concentrate their efforts on league success.
I resisted the temptation to use the old cliché but nevertheless, the FA Cup out of the way, the Imps can now put all their efforts into the league and I think it’s fair to say we would gladly sacrifice a cup run, for that’s all it would be, for progress up the league table. They did make a bit of money out of the cup, the defeat was embarrassing but there you go. That’s life, particularly for an Imp.
The midweek win away at Aldershot was a big plus, particularly the nature of it, City going ahead, getting pegged back and winning the game in the last few minutes, just what we needed in the circumstances.
So to Tranmere and City are going to have to improve on the way they started against them in the cup if they are to succeed. I thought the previous cup fixture had exit written all over it at the start but, as we know the home side prevailed.
City’s last home run out ended in failure and of course Tranmere will want to set the record straight having lost at Sincil Bank. City will be buoyed by that away victory and will also want to show their fans that the home defeat was just a flash in the pan so the possibility of a cracker of a game tomorrow is in prospect.
Let’s hope a few more fans will join us to see if this fledgling promotion push has got legs.
