Fulham Striker Blocking Boyce’s Bonus
Former Walsall FC youth Richard Peniket chose Fulham FC ahead of Manchester United at 16 earning an initial two year deal and 6 Wales U19 caps. At 18 he got an additional two year deal to celebrate being named in the first team squad as well as an U21’s call up and debut . However he was not Martin Jol’s cup of tea and despite loan experience in the Football League he decided to join the Lambs in the summer after being released along with 11 others. He has bagged 3 so far and contributed to six more, suggesting he has something and at only 20 he looks set to shine.

Since then the lad, who has been capped at every step of the Wales youth , has bagged 3 goals including a brace against Southport and another against Woking. At 6’3″ Peniket has the height and strength to go with a great technique and ability to shoot with either foot, and is keeping some other big names out of the big spending Lambs line-up.
Andrew Boyce, meanwhile, has managed to keep plenty of big reputations quiet so far this season and will be well up for the challenge of Peniket tomorrow evening. He like the rest of the Imps wants to get back in the play-off spots to ensure they get their weekly bonus He has been an inspiration in either box in every game since agreeing to be part of Simmo’s Sincil Bank revolution for the next two years. It will be an interesting tussle but one you would fancy the warrior to win.
This promises to be a battle between two strong sides with 42 yellow cards and 3 reds between them already this season. Foster and Baker in the middle will be fascinating as will the prospect of Nick Wright facing his old club. Nick, almost back to full fitness, bagged 27 goals in 79 appearances for the Lambs.
