To boldly go……..
I really can’t recall a time when I approached Imps games with such an air of confidence and anticipation. Tonight it’s Boreham Wood. I’m afraid I’m still tempted to say where? There really has been time to get used to it now so I must get out of that habit, as if it made the slightest difference anyway.
It’s certainly another winnable match for City and whilst none of us will be taking three points for granted should they be gained then the Imps could be in third place come 10pm.
The fans aren’t taking anything as read, rueful experience has tempered any undue optimism but with the Imps in such a rich vein of form at the moment now is certainly the time to dream of better times ahead for City:
“I am well aware of where we stand in the table and everyone was in great spirits after the win at Torquay. The Imps boss told the Echo
"However, we sat down before training on Monday and talked over what we had achieved and how we got there.
"We took it in and then it was time to focus on Boreham Wood. The lads have responded well. They had a good cool down training session on Monday with some running, and then we had another very good session on the Tuesday.
"It is clear what we can achieve if we get a win, and this is the biggest game of the season so far, because it can really get us in that play-off mix."
The Echo helpfully told us that Nat Brown is City’s only injury concern which caused me a liitle amusement, not at Nat’s expense or indeed the Echo, they’ve got to write something, but with the way the Imps defence has been performing Browns injury woes are surely of more concern to Halifax than ourselves.
