I went down to chat with Lincoln United boss Sam Wilkinson during Thursday evening’s training session and I must say I am mightily impressed with the set-up down there.
Every player is fighting for his place on Saturday afternoon and judging by the training they were being put through by coach Stuart Reddington, every one of them is fighting fit.
I spoke to Sam about this. He said: “Stuart is a first class coach who has got his badges and of course has loads of great experience behind him as a player.
“He has an air of authority about him and puts on some great training sessions.
“We have a really good group of players.
“They are a very fit squad and it’s going to be hard to pick a team in the coming weeks when everybody is fit.
“The team spirit is tremendous. No one really gives me any bother. The lads are friends on the pitch as well as off it.
“It does make a big difference.
“Last season their fighting spirit helped us score some late goals because every one was playing for each other.
“We aim to carry on building on what we have already got.”
