Teams & Schemes: Can Colin & Vadaine Deliver Again?

The Imps go into the Tamworth game full of hope and ambition, with Oliver and Larkin improving with every game. Miller is also back, but the Lambs threat will come from 7 goal Cunnington, an old school wide-boy down the flank. Gray will be a busy lad trying to keep that former Dagger in his sheath.

Jeffers, Wright and Cunnington are a decent trio up top, but Miller and Boyce together are impregnable when both are fit. They are ready and able, thankfully, or many would have feared the worst from a Tamworth side only just starting to click. A 2-0 win at Gateshead, who were then reduced to 10, is some achievement, even if you are the best travelled side in the BSP. An improvement in home form, starting tomorrow, will see them move to within striking distance of the play-offs.


Fofana and Mills will need to work harder than they did against Alfreton as Baldock and Kerry will not give Mills as much room. Offensively we was a treat, but in reality, despite hard work and endeavour, our captain has been overrun far too often this season.  Forest lad Morgan should in many eyes get the nod, but the captain is an inspiration in so many ways. Fofana could also make way but that too is unlikely, so Morgan may have to come from the bench again to further lay his claim.  Peter Till is a great winger and Nicolau and Nutter will need to be mindful with captain Tait also a force on the overlap. Bore may play, but Sheridan looks a better bet to shackle Cunnington who likes to come from deep for the Lambs.


Dempster was a target for the Imps before the Stags added him to every other sweet that Cox seems to have raided from the BSP sweet shop. Dempster’s loan from the Stags has strengthened the heart of a defence that will see Marshall partner him. Captain Tait, will be a tough adversary for Nicolau who is at least looking to add forward runs to his set-piece skills.  Sheridan also needs to up his game and put Barrow under some pressure.  If not the exciting duo we have up front will have to feed on scraps again. Two penalties, a tap in and some long punts, do not do their talents justice.
