Ahead of tonight’s match at home against Ipswich Town in the First Round of The Emirates FA Cup, we asked our members what three things they think The Imps need to go do go through to the Second Round.
Here’s what NottyImp said:
1. Don’t concede early. In fact, don’t concede at all. We seem notoriously bad at pegging back opposition this season, so the best plan is to restrict the opposition to no goals at all. This will be a challenge, given our error-prone defence and mid-field.
2. Channel the spirit of Michael Bostwick and defend like it’s Rorke’s Drift. No light-weight tippy-tappy fancy boys required tonight, thank you, just men who are prepared to put every part of their mind and body on the line for the team and cause. This is the FA Cup and it matters.
3. Be patient. We might nick a goal, you never know, possibly from a set-piece if Grant makes an appearance at any point. If not, play for penalties which may be our best chance of progressing. Anyone can win a lottery, after all.
Who Do You Think Will Win The First Round Replay?
