One thing I find most annoying about former players’ comments is that they don’t always understand non-league football.

I cringe whenever I hear the words ‘They might well tire in the last 10 minutes’.

These words of so-called wisdom were uttered yesterday during the Burnley/Lincoln City game.

The fact is that the Imps are as fit as any side they have faced all season, if not more so.

Each player has his own individual training programme which has been mapped out by a team of sports scientists at Sincil Bank.

In short, fitness and stamina are not issues for the National League table-toppers and FA Cup quarter finalists.

Ask Oldham Athletic, Ipswich Town and Brighton.
