Lincoln United have a busy weekend ahead of them.

They face Romulus at home today and then travel to Loughborough Dynamo on Bank Holiday Monday.

SportsLinc caught up with Whites’ boss Sam Wilkinson to get his views on today’s tough fixture.

Sam said: “This is our third home game on the spin and we are looking forward to a similar result to last week’s FA Cup win although we will be looking for an improved performance.

“Romulus come to us after winning all three of their opening games and all of them have been away from home.

“So it’s another tough game and we will have to be at our best to take all three points.

“Romulus are another team who give everything for their manager.

“They have a lot of pace in their ranks.

“They also beat us here last year so we will be trying to put that right.

“The League looks so strong this year and from what we’ve seen and played against already tells me that it’s going to be competitive week in week out.

“However we feel we have a good squad to cope with that.

“Last week’s game against Carlton was not great to watch for our supporters but I think the players showed that they can fight and put teams under pressure without playing brilliant football.

“Some games are like that and it can’t always be pretty but fair play to the lads because they kept going.

“Our never-say-die attitude was there for everyone to see.

“It was all about the result and not the performance.

“Having said that we all know we have to start games a lot better but we also know that will come.

“I hope we can get a result today against Romulus and give something back to our supporters.

“If we can get three points it will be a good solid start.

“We will have to work harder than we did last week and show more desire to win first and second balls.

“We can then hopefully show our quality in the final third.

“Defensively we have been pretty solid but we are always looking to improve in every area.

“We will be looking for a clean sheet today.”

Everyone at SportsLinc wishes the Whites all the very best today and …….
