Southport V Imps – Brabin Planning Tuesday Rumble in the 6-Pointer.

After the Nuneaton Town under Daish, Southport FC under former Luton Town & Cambridge United manager Gary Brabin is not an enticing thought on a Tuesday night.  Yes after the no show The Sandgrounders are another side who have appointed a new manager. STMI were the first to break the news last night and feared the worst – are we cursed? In truth we were also still gutted gutted that he had agreed personal terms so early in the day because Brabin can now call in favours from all his mates in the North-West (Gary’s born and bread in Liverpool so forget porridge because raw meat scouse and 4-4-2 builds football teams in these parts) and potentially have the cabs there for this afternoon.  A manager with a 49.6% win rate in the non-League has clearly been waiting for the right job since Luton discarded him in 2012. He also waited a year before returning after Cambridge – and that was for the Luton job.

The Challenge

Bring back Martin Foyle because Gary Brabin’s side will be bang up for it. They will be wanting to prove a point to the manager and Brabin will be wanting to prove a point to a Lincoln board that  passed him by  not that long ago.  As to whether he can turn Southport who really battled back twice before going down 2-5 at home to Woking, well that is the big question.  The Imps will be missing Anderson and Hamza, while MacDonald went off injured for ‘Port at the weekend.

Brodie and Luke Foster  might also want The Imps to think they should have tried a little harder in recent years too. Challoner  and Fitzpatrick are useful yet Newton and Miller can really get to grips with that back four.  As to whether Brabin will revert to the 3-5-2 that got the smash and grab 1-0 at the Cods or go with his preferred 4-4-2 for his first game is anyone’s guess.  One thing is for sure we play a part-time side that can pay more than we can, otherwise Mr Brabin would not have put his slippers in the oven and come out on a wet and windy Tuesday night. Then again they are his local club.
