Following Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at home against Port Vale in Sky Bet League Two, we asked our members what three things they learned from the match.

Here’s what BMF 53 said:

1. If the final whistle had blown five minutes earlier, then we would have dodged a bullet today, and been raving about the result. However, the luck we had at Cambridge was balanced out in injury time.

2. Let’s not forget that we are in a fantastic position. 51 points and 8 points clear of fourth. However, the match clearly showed how small the squad is and how some good replacements are needed. The team looked completely exhausted (for whatever reason) towards the end. Injuries are bound to strike at some stage, and we don’t have a lot beyond 14 or 15 players at the moment.

3. However, in the summer, Woodyard, Waterfall, Whitehouse and Farman were replaced with Shackell, O’Connor, Toffolo, Andrade, Akinde and Smith. Similarly, good recruitment would set us up well for the rest of this season and hopefully League 1 in August too.

We need to enjoy Saturday and then recruit wisely. I have every faith in Danny, Nicky and the board to do a good job. Surely good players in the lower leagues or the National League will want to join the Lincoln loco?

Thank you to Graham Burrell and Lincoln City Football Club for the photograph!
