I know our discipline has been pretty poor this season but starting the game with 10 men is pretty poor even by our standards ;)

That or the 11th man is Roberts and they knew that's essentially the same as playing with 10 men

Surprised Roberts is getting another go ahead of Fitzwater but otherwise no real surprises.

We need a couple of moments of brilliance from Brown and Doidge to be clinical as usual. Hard to see that back 4 being water tight all game.

It'll be the game Mark turns back the years as we repel wave after wave of attacks and pinch three on the break. Oh yeah.

Luke Waterfall on the bench for Lincoln. He'd be the one of the first on the team sheet IF he were at Rovers. Just saying

Surprised Evans wasn't given another chance at RB to allow Collins to stay at CB. James and Wishart should offer good protection defensively for the full backs. Hopefully Doidge can do what he often does and steal some goals.

Anyone know if Drissa is injured again or if he is likely to be back on New Year's Day?

Gah, no commentary as yet. Let's not have another shambles please.

Oh goodness. What a start! As you say JF, a long afternoon in prospect... confidence will already be low and now getting lower...

I genuinely hope I'm wrong, but I think we could get thumped today. :(

Lincoln commentary apparently reckoned it was a great cross but really any sort of cross and you're in with a chance against us at the moment.

Lincoln's strength (crosses and headers) vs our weakness (crosses and headers) was never a good recipe for a successful afternoon. Roll on January and some better signings. Team is relegation material as it is.
