Lincoln City's Alan Power will show Barrow no mercy

Lincoln City's Alan Power

Comments (10)

Alan Power is hoping Lincoln City can prey on Barrow's brittle confidence and ensure life after David Holdsworth begins with a bang.

The stand-in captain is bracing himself for a huge game against the visitors who arrive at Sincil Bank on the back of a 2-0 win against Woking on Tuesday.

That victory was a rare high point with the Holker Street side conceding 16 goals in their last five games.

Speaking after the 3-2 defeat against Hereford, Power is hoping the Imps can seal a much-needed win.

"They've not had the best of times recently and if there is a problem with confidence then we need to take advantage," he said.

"We know we are more than capable of getting a result. Some of our football has been very good at times and you can argue that we have deserved better in some games.

"But the most important aspect is going out there and getting a result.

"If you look at the table you can see that a couple of wins will soon take you up towards mid-table.

"That's what we have to be aiming for."

Caretaker boss Grant Brown must deal without Peter Gilbert, who is serving a three-match ban after his red card against Hereford.

Gary Mills is also ruled out because of a knee injury.

Conal Platt and Nicky Nicolau are also vying for a place in the starting XI.

    Oh dear! Have footie players never heard of the term "Hostage to fortune!" Guess not - not very bright. Can we approach a match NOT saying what we are going to do to the opposition - try just to do and keep the gloating till afterwards eh!

    See Barrow have won 3 of last 6, so not that much of a pushover. Couple of wins for them would see a move towards safety. Looking at goals conceded should be about 6 on Sat. Why do we have that annoying Chegwin pop up on here.

    I went to see the lads training on the Washingborough cow padle (sorry Community playing field) this morning - it was very cold, but they seemed to be in good heart! Lets hope we scrape a victory tomorrow to warm the "cockles of our hearts!"

    It's all too little too late as the Echo bask in the 'new Manager' syndrome they and a bunch of yokels absolutely love. It is all so small minded and just emphasizes a club heading down and out. My advice to the 'Managers' poised to take over who are 5/2 or 3-1 on...don't touch it with a barge pole.

    ....well I hope that Barrow's mid week win was just a blip and they will soon be back to their losing ways :) This ought to be 3 points for us so let's be ruthless and score a shed load. C'mon you Imps!
