“We are playing against a side who will defend deep, are ready to counter attack, have real speed on the wings and technical players on the inside.

“They’ve scored five goals already this season from counter attacks so we have to be very well prepared.”

“Lincoln are a club with a great journey so far, particularly over the last four years with two promotions. They are a team who are near the top of the league, and have a manager with lots of experience.

"We really look forward to the game.”
