Stevie_imp: “Looking forward to my first live game in the Football League in 6 years.”

Scotimp: “Wheeler and Moore-Taylor have failed their fitness tests. That’s 4 key players missing. Take Reid out, that is a very ordinary side.

Come on Lincoln!”


HitherImp: “Great to see Raggett on the sheet for today and Waterfall back. Pity about Ginnelly but that dodgy ankle needs to be properly right. UTI!”

Views After The Game On Our Match Thread

Rob the Imp: “If we aren’t going to score, we at least need to not concede to one shot! Work to be done.”

simes69: “Worrying start to the season considering the fixture list well into October. Next week home to Carlisle looks the easiest game on paper. Really need a win.”

Skip155: “1 away point dropped today. If we’re feeling any pressure it’s because of the 2 points their keeper denied us last weekend. The problem is you wouldn’t necessarily fancy us to put that right next Saturday.”
