Lincoln City v Walsall - Preview


Here we go.....


Our road to Wembley starts tomorrow with a trip to the beautiful, picturesque Lincoln City.

Vital Quotes:

Lincoln manager and former Saddler, David Holdsworth had this to say 'Walsall are huge favourites for this game so my players can go out there with freedom and the fans will get right behind them. It's the FA Cup and the glory can become reality'

Ginger Mourinho had this to say, 'The FA Cup is a big competition for us. It's a long time since this club had a decent run in it, so hopefully this will be our year. They have some good players who try to play football the right way and they will fancy their chances, particularly on home soil. But if we approach the game in the right way and perform to the level that I know we are capable of, our extra quality should prove too much for them'

Lincoln City Team News:

Lincoln have concerns over defender Dan Gray and midfielder Paul Robson. Both will have late fitness tests for the Imps.

Player to watch: Jamie Taylor

Jamie Taylor has just scooped the Blue Square Premiership player of the month following his recent spell. The front man has already scored 8 goals this term.

Walsall Team News:

Walsall defender Andy Taylor is expected to be ruled out.

The full back picked up a suspected hamstring injury last week. James Chambers is fit and will probably take his place at right back with Taundry moving out left.

Player to watch: Flo Cuvelier

Really struggling lately to pick one....
Ive got to go for Flo Cuvelier again. The little Belgian will tear through any defence. We will struggle to hold onto him past January.

Match Facts & Stats

Both sides have played each other on 71 occasions, with Walsall just edging it.
Walsall - 27
Lincoln - 25
Draw - 19

Walsall have only lost 1 of their last 8 against the Imps - that being our last meeting. Lincoln won the match 2-1 infront of the live camera's.

Weir Daley and Frecklington ran us ragged that day.

Match Prediction:

Lincoln go into this match on the back of an impressive win against Wrexham last week. Walsall however are yet to win in their last 6 league and cup games, this has giant killing written all over it! Im going to go for 1-1 and take them to a replay.
