Danny and Nicky Cowley put their sports science degrees to maximum use to ensure their players increase their fitness as the season goes on.
This time of year you hear cries of ‘they look a bit jaded’ or ‘the cup run has taken its toll’.
Not so at Sincil Bank.
A combination of monitored, individual training programmes plus clever squad rotation have enabled the Imps to surge forward.
A campaign that will consist of at least 60 games and last well into May presents no issues for the Cowleys.
In fact, they relish the challenge.
Last night’s 4-0 annihilation of Braintree Town is testament to that.
