Imps V Hyde – Morgan & Oliver Set For Sincil Stardom.
David Holdsworth will gamble on Nottingham Forest’s and Sheffield Wednesday’s youth pedigrees against Hyde as David Morgan and Vadaine Oliver both get a start this Sincil Super Saturday. On-loan Morgan, plus permanent poacher and air to the throne Vadaine will hope to gain a two goal cushion to tame the Tigers, lest we be slain again at the Theatre of pain. The Tigers were a goal down after 5 minutes against the Bulls as Bowman arrowed home. But just as we have failed to kill teams off, so the Bulls allowed the Tigers to run amok at the Ewan field China shop.
Here are the teams & schemes, starting with the somewhat verbose schemes, culminating with a pretty little graphic showing the team layouts at the bottom. May football, foremost be the winner Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

Scott McNiven plays 4-3-3 reasoning attack and valour be better bets than defence. Even though the Bulls pulled the game back to 2-2, a twelve minute Jevons hat-trick plundered a defence that lost its shape and confidence in the last 18 minutes of the game. This is something we Imps have seen to often as three points dissolve into one or none.
Spencer and Cox will give Nutter and Gray problems as we lack pace, but Boyce has the beating of Jevons. Hutchison will need to be on his game as three on four can be a testing ordeal, with all three midfield Tigers harrying and pressing the opposition. Mills is struggling, but Fofana looks a canny and combative foe, who can add to a more than competent debut at Telford. This will give Morgan the chance to let fly. The young box-to-box midfielder likes to shoot from distance and he is also keen to contest every ball. Both Bore and Nicolau are also showing their offensive abilities just as much as the desire to come alive, or tuck in and mix it in the engine room against threes, fours or fives.
Up front the Sincil sprite Jamie Taylor is due a goal and will enjoy the service that a pretty strong midfield should provide. Vadaine too, is eager to keep his scoring run going and will half the load that poor Jamie has had to carry so far this season. They face a young centre back pairing. Twenty-two-year-olds, Andy Pearson, once of Wigan, but signed from Rhyl and, Luke Ashworth, discarded from Rotherham and released by Halifax, will find our front’s pace power and movement a tough ask.
Optimistic perhaps, but as Hyde proved against the Bulls, they too have spirit and the desire to overcome adversity, stretching back to a 26-0 FA Cup defeat (a first class record) at the hands of Preston in 1887. They were then wound up in 2009 but a bucket collection reversed the decision on appeal. No one beat Preston in those early years, even Division 2 founder members Lincoln City, as they were the ‘Invincibles’. That is something the Imps can certainly never boast, particularly and latterly, against underdogs at home. That first win of the season has put a spring to the Tigers step and many of their ranks will see Sincil Bank as a fitting stage upon which to perform. Take head Imps for their front three are on form and more than capable of bringing another 5 goal Sincil storm.
