Michael Appleton

The Imps boss spoke about his desire to avenge Saturday’s defeat saying: “Everyone will be in the same frame of mind, looking forward to getting back in, dressing down, and looking forward to tomorrow night’s game.

“Our approach is making sure we concentrate on what we do, being aware of what the opposition’s threats are, but more importantly, we’ll just be looking for a positive response.”

On the upcoming opponents he added: “If you look at the league as a whole, it’s very tight and there’s not a lot in it. Even the sides towards the bottom are more than capable of beating the sides at the top, so I was not overly surprised at their result on Saturday.”

Shrewsbury Town’s Form

Currently 22nd in the Sky Bet League One table, Shrewsbury have 14 points from 16 games this season, most recently picking up all three points in an impressive 1-0 victory at league leaders Hull City on Saturday, to make it four league games unbeaten.

Town have two wins this season, also defeating AFC Wimbledon 1-0 away from home.

Opposition View

Shrewsbury Town manager Steve Cotterill spoke about the Imps prior to tomorrow’s meeting at LNER Stadium.

The 56-year-old praised Michael Appleton’s side saying: “Lincoln are very good on the counter, which is something we need to be aware of.

“The teams will change from the last game, but I would say their style of play will remain the same. Michael has got a very good style of play with them.”
