If you believe in curses don’t read this.
If Lincoln City can avoid defeat against Tranmere Rovers tomorrow, Nantwich Town on Tuesday and Guiseley on Boxing Day it would be a full three months without a loss.
That would be 18 games unbeaten.
That would be some achievement.
The question asked is: can they do it?
The answer is: why not?
When you have a settled team playing with confidence backed by huge local support chances are you are going to play with verve and heart.
That’s exactly what the Imps do.
So I will take it one step further.
I will say they will win their three remaining matches of the year and go forth into 2017 with renewed hope and glory.
