Simmo Facing Selection Headache

Summer captures Nick Wright (Mansfield Town) and Adi Yussuf (Burton Albion) look set for a return against Salisbury City this Sincil Bank super Saturday. However the form of Sheridan, Rowe and Fairhurst suggests the manager will have to make some tough decisions despite Captain Alan Power facing the last of his three match ban.

Simpson must be pinching himself going into September after crusing through a tough opening six in August. This was made somewhat more difficult with Yussuff missing every game and pacey Wright getting just 106 minutes of football before a hamstring pull rules him out 35 minutes into the Macclesfield 1-0 home win, just the second game of the season.

Simmo will also have to chose between Gray and Miller at right back, with Foster Fofana and Nolan, knowing three into two wont go. The lads are a consiistent and united bunch as the stats below show.
