Its the long trip to Wales for the Imps

This weekend sees the Imps make the long trip to Wales where they will take on a promotion chasing Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground. Wrexham currently lay second in the table, the same position they agonisingly found themselves in at the end of last season as they narrowly missed out on promotion back to the football league. A position they wont want repeated at the end of this season.

Wrexham have started the season at a canter and have only lost once so far, in the second game of the season away to Macclesfield. At home they have won five of their seven matches and so far they have only conceded four goals at the Racecourse Ground. This is a sign of how tough it will be for Lincoln, especially if we concede early on in the match like we have so many times this season. On the other side of this the Imps have yet to win away from home and in all honesty it is unlikely it will change this weekend against a side in good form.

One positive for the Imps is that Wrexham are without their first choice goalkeeper, Joslain Mayebi, as he is on international duty for Cameroon (never thought I would write this about a non league game!) so it is expected that Andy Coughlin will make his second appearance for the Dragons after he stepped n for the 3-2 victory over Stockport in their previous match. Wrexham will also be without defenders Neil Ashton, who was sent off for two yellow cards against Stockport as well as scoring two penalties and Jay Harris both through suspension. Striker Rob Ogley is a injury worry could still be available for this match.

Lincoln will still be without on loan midfielder Adam Morgan who is away with the Northern Ireland under 19 squad. Whilst Duffy, Nutter, Power and Platt are still out injured. But the good news is that both Platt and Duffy have resumed light training this week meaning they should hopefully be back in contention for first team football in the next few weeks.

This is an incredibly hard match for the Imps, Wrexham have carried on from last season and will be in the top three come the end of the season in my opinion. Player-Manager Andy Morell is likely to be involved tomorrow and he is leading his side, quite literally, from the front. I expect Wrexham to turn the Imps over quite comfortably an if we continue to play negative uninspriring football it could be a comfortable 2 or 3 goal win for the Dragons.
