Danny Cowley could use the FA Trophy tie at Nantwich Town tomorrow night to give some of his squad an opportunity to get some valuable game-time in their legs.
It also enables first-team regulars like Theo Robinson and Nathan Arnold a chance to have a well-deserved rest.
This tactic would by no means weaken the Imps.
Players like Adam Marriott, Alan Power and Jack Muldoon would still give Danny’s men the necessary strength and creativity to make progress to the second round.
I know Danny takes this competition very seriously.
He knows Lincoln City is one of only a few teams who haven’t made the trip to Wembley.
This competition provides the opportunity put the record straight.
