There are several reasons why football teams sit on top of their respective leagues.
The more obvious ones include quality of play, a solid defence and goals that come from all over the pitch.
In the case of Lincoln City one of the their most outstanding features is team spirit.
This shone through on Tuesday when for 65 plus minutes Danny Cowley’s men defended their 1-0 lead with only ten men.
You cannot buy team spirit. It is something which develops over time.
What is happening at Sincil bank is quite simple.
Danny and Nicky Cowley have built up an atmosphere of positivity, trust and self-confidence in their squad over the last few months.
Long may it continue to develop and grow.
I am convinced it will. What is more important, the players do too.
