Imp Statz – Heroes Don’t Become Zeroes Overnight
Only a penalty from Aldershot Town’s Brett Williams stood between Paul and his seventh clean sheet of the season, but Farman’s five fabulous saves still deservedly earned him his first STMI man of the match award of the season.

For those suggesting Lincoln lack a plan B or ability to change, remaining forward options Wright and Dixon were both brought on with Boyce even thrown up in a target man role as the Imps went 4-2-4 for most of the second half in order to salvage a point. Yes it ultimately failed but unlike the Shots the Imps cannot afford thoroughbreds in the final third can we? Thus, alas, another brave performance undone thanks to a moment of madness from Mr consistent Nat Brown and the understandable weakness in the final third. As Carl Shutt said to me recently (for Richard Butcher’s book) “Even at this level consistent goal scorers cost the bigger wages and bonuses, so the less you pay the more chances you take on your forward line delivering, and the less chances they will take in the box week in week out.
The following stats illustrate the consistency defensively but goals are going to be the problem this term unless Wright or Yussuf comes good. They have the pace we crave but Vadaine Oliver back on loan would be the answer one feels. Keep the faith, its hard but at least you are allowed to go to home games unlike some of us.
