The Imps will be eager to emulate last season’s cup run when we beat Halifax 2-0 in a replay, after a frustrating 0-0 at home, to progress to the first round proper. A tough tie against Walsall in free-fall at the time saw a spirited 1-1 draw at home before that 3-2 thriller away on a famous night. A third home draw saw Lincoln share a six-goal thriller against eventual champions Mansfield, who triumphed 2-1 to deny us a lucrative home tie with Liverpool.
With funds just as vital this time around the £12,500 prize money would come in very handy along with 40% of the gate. The first Round proper also affords the opportunity of meeting a League team with £18,000 in prize money going to the winners. It could fund those £1500 away trips and the target man we need.
