IMPS’ BACK FIVE ENVY OF THE LEAGUE

Success in football is usually built on a solid defence.

 One reason why Lincoln City top the table is that with only 31 goals against they have one of the best defensive records in the National League.

At the other end of the pitch they have scored 62 goals which is up there with the best of the rest.

Contributing to that goal tally are the Imps’ back five.

The goal at Burnley came about from a Habergham corner, a Waterfall directed header and there was Raggett to head home.

 Last night it was Waterfall’s turn to ensure all three points returned to Sincil Bank.

Defenders know their job and as Sean Dyche said of the Imps’ back four: “They didn’t move”.

Well actually in the 89th minute, they did.

That’s why Lincoln City are in the quarter-final of the FA Cup.
