Lincoln Top National League with Macclesfield & Grimsby Town Lurking

Lincoln city (2014).pngLincoln City sit top with Macclesfield Town grinding the gears of rivals Grimsby Town (3rd) in the current form stakes over the last 8 games.  The Silkmen do edge it on goal difference but the Lincoln Loco is gathering steam game by game and the away form is something to be proud of.

Lincoln go for four wins on the spin on Wednesday night at Boreham Wood. A potential banana skin at the newly promoted club struggling to adapt in 20th, the Imps can take solace from having the fourth best away record in the division.

Lincoln Loco Pulls Into Boreham Wood Then?

The three-one Torquay United away romp following on from the Tranmere Rovers and Aldershot Town wins ensured the Lincoln City Loco entered the play-offs. Nosebleed time for one of the longest serving League clubs perhaps ahead of a second successive away test tomorrow night (Wed 25th) at Boreham Wood FC. Moyses mission certainly seems to be gathering steam among the loyalist fans in football but it is the emerging City of Lincoln that needs the Football League every bit as much as the vociferous and Mighty Imps.

The long-overdue brace from Waterfall (16’& 74′) – it could have been a hat-trick for the centre-half – with hit-man Hearn chiming in with his eighth of the season (25′) saw the fifth placed play-off birth realised but it has been coming. The Mighty Imps go into this one looking for their fourth win on the spin having won four and lost one of their last five excluding the Cup. Then again Lincoln do not traditionally do well in the FA Cup which would afford the much needed gravy to really float the City boat.

Those that cannot go will be huddled around their transistor radios listening to BBC RADIO LINCS  with Sportin Hortin and Tommos dulcet tones, a throw back to the traditional values the Cathedral City casts far and wide.  The Mighty Imps will however be well backed, as ever, for the long trip to Hertfordshire on the morrow with more than a few borrowing money to go. They should be forgiven for this is Christmas come early for a club managed by a fan who has put his own dough in to fuel the dream and prove he is the man with a plan that can.

Moyses, a firm but fair straight talking man motivator, could get some help with that ahead of the transfer window as the turnstile clicks gather pace. With 3176 at the last Tranmere home game a win tonight could see 3500 at home to Welling on Saturday – and they wont be bringing many. A crowd funder initiative raised £16,440 to fund this side in the summer as the fans did their bit pre-season but now is the time to get on the Lincoln Loco and cheer the Imps over the line with a new crowdfunder initiative  – So come on imps back Moyses Mission The Next Goal #teamlincoln.
