Nuneaton v Lincoln City

Nuneaton v Lincoln City

The Imps have a crucial must win away match this weekend against Nuneaton. The trip to Liberty Way is the first the Imps have made in their entire history. After the 2-1 defeat at home to top of the table Wrexham the Imps are now back in trouble at the wrong end of the table sitting just three points above the relegation places. Nuneaton on the other hand are four points behind the Imps but they do have two games in hand over the Imps. This makes this a real must win game for the Imps to bolster our survival hopes.

Earlier on in the season the Imps beat Nuneaton in a narrow 2-1 victory in September, a repeat of this result would be brilliant for a struggling Lincoln side who had the lowest attendance for nearly 20 years on Tuesday night. Signs that the fans really are losing faith in our ability to stay up and once again it will impact the club financially in the long term if numbers don`t increase drastically.

Nuneaton come into this match with two consecutive goal less draws away to Hereford and at home to Luton respectively. Good results for a struggling side and this adds to a side that has conceded only once in the past four matches. This tight defence isn`t a good sign for the imps who have looked quite frankly woeful in front of goal lately and penalties have helped more than they should do of late. Penalties won`t be awarded every game and Tuesday was another match where we didn`t manage an effort on target all game.

Following yet another signing just hours before the Wrexham match in mid week it is anyone`s guess if we will set more new faces in what is looking an increasingly desperate situation for the club to cling on to our place in the league. Vadaine Oliver is still out suspended so new signing Dali or Hobson is likely to come into the squad. I am hoping Taylor will play in attack after he worked hard on the right but we need goals and whilst he doesn`t fit in with Simpsons land of the giants strikers he does have an eye for goal that we are severly lacking in Hobson or Dali playing on their own in attack. Nat Brown hopefully could return to the squad following injury so he could return to the heart of the defence.

This is now a massive game for the imps. Lose and we are in deep trouble, a win is what we need, we have to beat the sides around us if we are to have any hope of staying up. This season once again is now just about survival, I hope that somehow we can, but next season has to be an improvement if we are to get the fans back.

Not sure about must win, would be great if we could nick 3 points, more important is a must not lose!

As long as Smith doesn't come on the pitch anytime during the game we will stand a good chance of picking up 3 pts. If Simpson hadn't made the substitution on Tuesday we would have at least picked up 1 point after Farman's mistake. Even if he did make the substitution it should have been Sheridan or Nicalou. Wake up Simpson and admit Smith is useless and get rid of him now sooner than later before you take us down.
