Ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s match at home against Morecambe in Sky Bet League Two, we asked our members what three things they think The Imps need to do to get all three points.
Here’s what Impalex said:
1. Play with two up front, perhaps Rhead as a target man to feed the beast which is Akinde. Whilst I appreciate this leaves no room for Green, who certainly deserves his chance, at least he would be a very good replacement for either of the other two.
2. We must ensure that we press constantly from the front as, in some games recently, we have tended to let teams come at us at times. Like many fans, it worries me when I see my team allowing others to come at them; it almost feels inevitable that we will concede at some point.
3. Don’t let O’Connor take all attacking free kicks and corners as he wastes too many, especially going for the near post and not beating the first man. I much prefer to mix it up a bit and give Eardley and Andrade a chance to provide something different. Even Bossie should have a go from any free kick just outside the area; was it at Swindon last season he scored directly from a free kick?
And here’s what sedgleyimp said:
1. Play to our attacking strengths which means using the width of the pitch to allow Andrade and Anderson or Gordon the space to attack with pace down the flanks to get crosses in.
2. And as a continuation of that play with 2 up front to capitalize on those crosses as Morecambe will come to defend we need threats in the box which would be increased if we had a proper partner for Akinde rather than a number 10 coming from deep.
3. Man for man Lincoln are better than Morecambe. So if the players play to their abilities this is a game we should win. The top of the table will be tight for the rest of the season with MK Dons, Colchester, Mansfield and Bury playing well so we need to take three points from games like this to keep the pressure on.
