Imps Will Need The Wednesday Boys on Saturday At Barnet

Sheffield Wednesday cast-offs Todd Jordan and Luke Foster are hard as Sheffield Steel, with Luke leading Oxford United out of the Conference a few years ago.  The long trip to Barnet FC, is just made for their battling qualities and of course the return of Captain Alan Power who is chomping at the bit after a three match ban. Since playing at Chesterfield FC on Wednesday all three have been fed raw meat!

Todd, like ex Owl & Imp Vadaine Oliver, was unlucky to miss the cut at Hillsborough, but has still only just started out and has a natural fitness and agility that is infectious out on the pitch. Foster, meanwhile went on to glory at Oxford UnitedMansfield Town, Stevenage, York City, Rotherham before being released by League 1 side Preston North End in May. 

Both are dominant characters as you would expect, with Todd hailing from the Parklands Estate of old.  Neither have the flair that one associates with the Owls over the years, although suggesting either would fit into the more workmanlike Blades, would probably risk a black eye or a porridge disturber.

Barnet have three busy Bees in midfield, so if Power and co are going to have any chance to play, everyone is going to have to put a big shift in after that four hour journey on Saturday.  Boyce and Brown will also have to contend with Hyde and Marsh-Brown, with 8 goals between them. The Imps would surely take a point ahead of this one, with the likes of Todd, Luke and Skipper Power back to strengthen the side  Lincoln could well have enough.
