Farman Set For Plymouth Comeback

Inspirational Lincoln and England C keeper Paul Farman looks set to face Plymouth Argyle in a winner takes all encounter as David attempts to slay Goliath in the First Round of The FA Cup on Saturday.

Rose Tinted is getting excited

Farman has been a solid ever-present presence between the sticks for Lincoln and will be vital if we are to keep out the Pilgrims who have won their last two games 1-0 against Mansfield and Northampton respectively.  Farman was forced to miss the 0-1 reverse at Welling with a knee injury as experienced keeper coach David Preece came in to cover.

The Pilgrims had a tough start to the season but have now lost just once in the last 5 games, the defeat coming at the Monkey-Hangers (Hartlepool) with home draws against Portsmouth (1-1) and Newport (0-0).  Both the Stags and Newport have made solid starts to the season suggesting John Sheridan’s side look set to climb the table with an FA Cup run also very much in the plans.

The up-turn in form should also boost the gate with the Pilgrims perhaps bringing anywhere from 700-1500, boosted by the atmospheric former home end the Stacey-West, named after the two Imps who died in the Bradford Fire disaster.
