Southport v Lincoln preview

Southport v Lincoln preview

The games are coming thick and fast for the Imps at the moment, thanks to Conner Robinsons injury time goal the Imps managed to come away from Ebbsfleet with a 1-1 draw at the weekend. But just days later the Imps are on their travels again, this time to Southport on the west coast on Tuesday night. There is just one point between the two sides in the league coming into this match with the Imps in 13th above of the Sandgrounders who are 17th with both sides playing 25 matches so far this season.

The Imps have stalled slightly from December, winning just one match since the middle of November, the 4-2 away victory over Dartford. The positive news for the Imps is that we are on a three game unbeaten run, all three ended 1-1. Being unbeaten is all good and well but wins are what will allow us to progress, with the league so tightly contested draws will see us only slowly slide down the table, like we have since reaching the top half just over a month ago.

Southport have been an incredibly inconsistent side this season, they have yet to win two matches in the league so far and having beaten Telford 3-1 away on Saturday we will be hoping they don`t manage to do a season first against the Imps. In head to head records between the two sides The Imps have only won 7 matches to the Yellows 17! With ten matches ending in a draw. Last season the Imps drew away on the opening day of the season before beating the Yellows 2-0 at home in January.

David Holdsworth will once again have to field a bit of a make shift side with the sheer number of injuries being picked up causing a headache for the manager and fans alike. Platt was named on the bench for Saturday but it is unlikely he will be able to play more than half an hour or so of first team football. Fofana is still out with injury meaning new loanee Thomson may have to play centre midfield again alongside either Power or Gray depending on the formation deployed by the manager. The defence very much picks its self at the moment with Miller, Garner, Boyce and Robson the only real possibilities to fill out the back line due to injury. Bore has also been released today along with Nutter last week who signed for Woking. These departures must mean that new recruits are imminent.
This is another game similar to Saturday that if we are to be looking to consolidate a mid table finish we will need to avoid defeat at the least. It can see this match ending in another draw with the Imps glad to get to the weekend with no further Injuries or suspensions. After tonight the imps embark on a very hard run of fixtures it would be great if we can go into those games with three points and the first win of the New Year.
