The Imps are back in action tomorrow night at Sincil Bank as they take on Southport in the Skrill Conference Premier. The Imps snatched a very late equaliser to get a 1-1 draw away to recently relegated Barnet at the Hive. Following an impressive start to the season the Imps are high up the table in 8th place with 14 points. Southport are not far behind the Imps with 13 points as they sit 11th in the table, both sides were battling at the wrong end of the table last season so the positive start from both is welcome news for the sets of fans.
Southport come to Sincil Bank on the bank of a slightly disappointing 2-2 home draw against newly promoted Welling United. The goals for Southport came from Chris Almond and Danny Hattersley in a, statistically, even match which may have even been edged by the visitors. Southport manager Alan Wright will be hoping for a much improved performance against the Imps, especially given our difficult to beat approach to matches.
In the corresponding fixture last season the Imps beat Southport 1-0 towards the end of the season. This could well be a likely scoreline tomorrow night as the Imps are averaging only a goal a game this season. Manager Gary Simpson is preferring a cautious approach of not conceding which is getting good results at the moment, even if it isn`t the most enthralling entertainment but it is a results business and no one can have many complaints with the sides position in the league following our previous seasons in this division.
Southport do posses a few dangerous players, the most prominent is striker Chris Almond. Almond is a striker who has an eye for goal, even in a weaker side he is a threat. Behind him will be Milligan who will be looking to provide the chances for the striker. Wright, appointed in the summer has changed the approach of tomorrows opponents to a more possession based style, as seems the flavour of many newly appointed managers, a stark contrast to the long ball tactics utilised by his predecessor Watson.
The Imps come into this match with few selection problems. Striker Wright could be in contention for a start after he played the final twenty minutes of Saturdays match, he could well be the focal point that the side have been missing this season due to the injury of both himself and Yussuf. I am hoping to see a positive line up with Power, Rowe, Tomlinson and Fairhurst all in contention as we struggle to create chances it is important that we have players who can score form little quality service.
I am expecting the imps to win this match, I am going for a 2-0 victory I doubt our defence will give many chances away and with Wright back in contention I hope we can utilise his pace and power in attack to get the support strikers in better positions and as such reap the benefits with more efforts on goal.
