Lincoln United Are Coming!

In a season that's already been spent meeting old accquaintances and renewing long forgotten rivalries its nice to finally come up a against a team with whom we have no history (except for the odd friendly).

Both sides registered their first wins of the season over the Bank Holiday weekend and the defeated team in both cases were Grantham, whose fans now regretting their pre-season posturing that the Unibond League wasn't going to be much of a challenge. Lincoln are currently in 17th place with four points and have lost both of their away games this season with an aggregate score of: F 0 - A 4.

This will be the first of at least two trips to Seel Park this season for the Lincolnshire side though I doubt we'll see many travelling fans on either ocassion - United's home gate averaging around the 100 mark which is not surprising considering they're next door to a Championship League side.

Prediction: I know that some people will be looking at this fixture as the first one of the season where we should win but this one feels too close to call, especially with my correct prediction streak currently running at a lifeime best of, er... two at stake. I could hedge my bets and go for a draw but instead I'm going to predict a hard fought, ground out victory for the Lilywhites.
