PREVIEW: SOUTHEND VS THE IMPS

31 January 2020

The Imps end the month by travelling to Roots Hall, the home of Southend United this weekend in SkyBet League One Action.

Lincoln will be looking to put in a similar performance against the Shrimpers as seen earlier in the season when they picked up an impressive 4-0 win at home. The Imps had four different goalscorers at LNER Stadium with Jason Shackell, Harry Toffolo, Tyler Walker and Bruno Andrade all finding the back of the net.

Manager's Comments

Blues manager Sol Campbell spoke to Southend's website about how his side will prepare for Saturday's fixture: “I’m up for the fight and we will keep going.

"We’ve had a few young players come through recently and they’ve given me food for thought, if I have to keep re-jigging things to work then that’s what I’ll do." 

The former England international then turned his attention to The Imps saying: "Lincoln will be a similar test to Doncaster. 

"We have to defend as a team and do it properly, but when we have possession, we have to utilise the ball more, look for the counter-attacks, push forward and do it well.  

"We hit the post a couple of times, created good chances and scored a goal, it’s not bad but when we have those chances we’ve got to take them and that’s what we’ll be aiming for against Lincoln."
