Yeah, rose being beaten up at Newport has little to do that.

It’s not an excuse, it’s circumstance. Had green got injured at any stage of us winning the conference we’d have screwed, it didn’t happen and we got lucky.
Same with White...Shocking challenge at Colchester and his leg gets broken.

Hmmm it’s weird having a home game and not being able to get. Football belongs on a Saturday not a bloody Monday night.

Apparently 6600 sold of as yesterday which is decent considering it’s on a Monday night which will have stopped many and it’s on sky.

Given MK drew at draw wouldn’t be the end of the world, but we’ve just got to play our home game and go from there

Looking forward to tonight, pretty much full squad throws up a lot of selection dilemmas. A spitting image of Sheffield Utd's on Friday night will do. UTI

Is that just home fans or combined Adam?
Very decent especially for a Monday as you say.

Both, according to steve hymas (one of the directors so don’t blame me if it’s wrong :gr:) - on that basis hoping for 7,000 or so.

It’s one of those games where we could do with a bigger away stand, though notts police would shit themselves.

If we have Turner and Pearce in a back 4 then it will only mean one thing - penalty galore for Lincoln!

Hoping for a draw but cannot see anything other than defeat! (Probably because I have just been to PV and Crawley away)

A few weeks ago I was concerned about this game and our run in generally, but getting four wins and a draw out of the last five has definitely given us some breathing space.

If we lost tonight and at MK, on paper our hardest couple of games, as long as we manage to get around 10 more points in our other games, we can afford to lose one or two.

All I know is despite conceding less than anybody else in the division you can chuck that stat out the window without our back three of Pearce, Sweeney, Preston - I’m not sure if Preston knew/Sweeney concussion is still a problem?

Upper Ian Greaves is sold out so should be a good crowd.

I believe we've sold just under 1700.

Seems the Lincoln fans have quite the fasincation with DF on your forum, most amusing

Wonder if the cowley sisters can finally beat us in the league tonight?

Really hoping the update on Preston late last week was just mind games from DF and he plays. Dont fancy a back 3 of Sweeney, Pearce and Turner if he plays Sweeney on the right of it. Turner looked much better at Crawley which is a positive at least.

Lincoln fans... Who’s good for a yellow card out of your lot. Will be having a bet builder on 365 on it

Flitcroft has been quite complimentary of us in the build up to this. He obviously realised he was a bit shirty and emotional either side of previous games.

Akinde/Rhead or Bostwick

Our highest yellow card are Bostwick, Toffolo and Eardley with 6. Akinde 5. Rhead 3.

We've had no suspensions through accumulations of yellows this season. We only average one yellow a game and had quite a few this season where no-one's been booked.

I'd say O'Connor might be favourite for a booking.
I'm going Bet365, Harry Anderson to score anytime, 9/2. Think he's due a goal.

I don’t quite get the animosity from a lot of Imps, and our favourite hater David, Mansfield and Lincoln are similar.

Under 40 booking points
Over 1.5 goals
Over 8.5 corners

4.36/1
Shouldn’t be the goals that’s a problem.

A draw is my best idea. We’ve drawn the last 2 with each team equalising at the others ground in injury time

And I do agree their antics on the touchline can be cringe worthy at times, no need for it but all managers do it.
Thank god they haven't charged 40 odd yards down the touchline and jumped into their own fans like a certain manager did at our place recently...

Can't be doing with watching Lincoln on TV. A check of the FT score on Flashscores and that'll be it!

Hoping for a convincing Lincoln win, not only so we stay 3rd but also to deplete Mansfield's goal difference a bit. Nothing against Mansfield, this is just business.

Expected line up from us really with O'Connor adding a bit of experience and bite in CM. Stags defenders have resurrected for the game. Bench looking strong, Mr Angol the stage is set!

Fantastic start from Mansfield, can definitely see why they are such a good team at home.

Lincoln look quality.

Seen those penalties given but understand why it wasn’t, thought the yellow was harsh mind

Harsh yellow, would have been a harsh penalty too.

Walker needs to bag that pull back from CJ - we need to get the ball to CJ more often.
