I'd be amazed if we had!Another day, another changed line-up, Luke Imp have we managed to put out the same side on consecutive matches this season?
Goalkeeper, Josh Griffiths is out injured and replaced by 18/19? year-old Sam Long who makes his first league start. Defender TJ Eyoma is out and Max Melbourne comes in and no Chris Maguire. Ted Bishop who isn't fully fit is back at right back. A real mismashed defence which won't be able to keep a clean sheet - this score could be anything.
Good to see Marquis start and interesting to see where Cullen plays - looks like attacking midfield? We also have a whopping 6 subs available!
Ridiculous result (considering the injury situation). Thats away wins at Sunderland, Plymouth and Wigan that i can remember. If only we could sort out our home form! Such an important result when you see some of the other scorelines at the bottom of the table. Its so tight!
Jackson, Walsh, Hopper, Maguire and Eyoma and Bridcutt all due back by mid-February as well.Ridiculous result (considering the injury situation).

Glad you were rigjt, however you dominated the first half. You need Tyler Walker to get up to speed fast.I can't see beyond a home win for this one.
Our form post covid winter break is patchy, and we're in the midst of overhauling our team for the second time in 6 months. Inconsistency is inevitable and you're one of the top sides in this division with a strong home record.
Kamikaze defending from both sides.Should have won. Can’t defend.
Looking very interesting and tight at the bottom of the league. You, Shrewsbury and Cheltenham seemed to start pulling away, now dragged back in. Can't call who will going down.I fancied us to get something out of the game today but Charlton too strong on the day. Excellent wins by Donny and Morecambe, Lincoln getting a good 3 points so not the best of days league wise. Go again on Tuesday with the first of 2 successive home games
I watched it on iFollow. Whilst we showed promise in the opening half hour, we never really troubled your keeper which is pretty much the story of much of our season. Once you won back control, there only ever looked like one winner.Glad you were rigjt, however you dominated the first half. You need Tyler Walker to get up to speed fast.
I'd say you could have won, not should have.Should have won. Can’t defend.
It's probably going to go down to the last couple of games of the season. I still think there will be a team, now reasonably mid table who will start to enter a dreadful run, come Feb/ March and go down. The opposite is true course, look how Burton Albion came back from dead last year. This league not for the faint hearted ehLooking very interesting and tight at the bottom of the league.

I've read this before somewhere....A scrappy performance against Cheltenham but a welcome 1 0 victory.
Smith was lucky with the goal because he appeared to foul his marker but equally unlucky having a good header ruled out for "offside".
Cheltenham played some tidy football but most of it was in their own half thankfully.
N'lundulu should have seen a red card for a late challenge on our keeper in the first half, and Boyle pushed his luck with two more late challenges after his yellow card.
Ladapo was given a start to give him the chance to impress any watching scouts but they can't have been very taken with him..
He strolled about in typical Ladapo fashion, made about two useful contributions in the entire game, before being subbed on 88 minutes.
We need to replace him and move him out even if it's not a great fee.
Contrast him with Smith who worked and battled and scored and carried on covered in blood after a clash with one of Cheltenham's centre halves.
He must look across at Ladapo and think WTF.
Overall it was an off day and apart from a 10- 15 minute spell in the second half 200 odd Cheltenham fans made more noise than our lot.
Had a really good day out. All the PLymouth folks were pleasant and welcoming. And of course the result helped.Away at Plymouth.
In typical Lincoln style we've gone from having options in defence and none up top to options up top and none in defence.
No Walsh, Jackson, Monstma, Bridcutt or Hopper. Bishop has a slight groin issue, which Appleton would ideally like to give him a game off for but with it Rotherham being postponed, he might play him.
Poole and Eyoma likely to start at CB, I'd be amazed if Marquis didn't start up front and I've got a feeling we'll go with what is effectively a front four of Scully, Whittaker, Marquis and Maguire.
For most of the first half of the season we were getting inconsistent performances and poor results but over the last 6 or 7 games, we've got consistent performances but inconsistent result.
Our games against Plymouth recently seem to be quite open and that'll suit us. We'll not keep a clean sheet so will have to score at least two.
