Imps look to restore fortress Lincoln.
Sincil Bank has been our stronghold for some time now and the Imps will be hoping it continues this weekend after last Saturdays defeat followed by null points on the road at Colchester. Although City were beaten last Saturday I think there was enough about the performance to encourage us. I know also that some regulars couldn’t get tickets so although I expect the gate to be good hopefully everyone that wants to go will be able to.
I defer to no one in my admiration of Danny Cowley but I’m going to take issue with him on one point. He says getting to the playoffs this season would surpass last season exploits. I think nothing short of the championship would surpass last season and he seems to forget we are no strangers to the league two playoffs. As you know we enjoyed if that’s the word, two finals in Cardiff. Typically for Imps fans it was Cardiff not Wembley.
There is a long way to go before we even start to think about play offs and championships and the manager has got to solve the goal scoring reluctance if we are to really make progress. An awful lot of confidence seems to be placed in the Imps ability to substantially recruit after Christmas and I do hope we're not going to be disappointed after that. Having said that Danny and Nicky’s ability to pull rabbits out of the hat can sometimes give a children’s Christmas party magician a run for his money.
An attacking version of Neal Eardley would do very nicely if you could see your way clear Santa.
