The desire to win the County Cup and, the dominance of Sleaford back in the day, was the catalyst for the founding of the Imps back in 1884. Simmo, a legend at Trinity and Boston, takes County matters almost as seriously as the concept of pride itself and, not surprisingly looks set to play a near full-strength and very strong side with returning heroes Fairhurst, Gray, Fofana, Wright and Yussuf likely to get the valuable match fitness they need ahead of Saturday. Bookings will count in this one suggesting Miller and Newton will get a rest and Tomlinson may need more time after a knock against The Harriers. This gives out of sorts Fairhurst (if fit) a chance to prove himself along with Adi and Wrighty who could be about to hit one of his goal streaks.
Steve Housham will play the first 11 and use a heavy pitch, thanks to the relentlessness rain, plus the physical presence of Stamp to his sides advantage. Trinity drew 2-2 with Saturday’s opponents Worcester a month ago and have lost only 1 in the last 6 games. That was a 2-3 reverse at high-flying, big spending Solihull Moors at the weekend with Beswick grabbing two last minute goals to end an unbeaten run that had seen Trinity climb from the foot of the table after a horrible pointless start. The result sees them fall back to 17th, one point and two places above Worcester City.
