Lincoln City captain Alan Power hopes to be back in squad for Barnet
Alan Power is hoping he did enough in a behind closed doors friendly against Chesterfield to work his way back in to the Lincoln City line-up for Barnet.
The Imps skipper has missed the last three matches as he served out a suspension following a red card at Cambridge United.
It was a blow for Power, but the midfielder has been determined to maintain his fitness levels so he can slot straight back in.
“I played 90 minutes against Chesterfield in a behind closed doors friendly. I needed that. It was a good chance to impress the manager,” said Power.

“I’ve worked extra hard to get myself fit during pre-season and I’ve worked hard to keep that fitness up.
“It is hard to train when you have not got a game to work towards. But I’ve been getting behind the lads and shown my support over the last few games.”
Power still felt that his ban was excessive.
“When the tackle happened I was annoyed because I didn’t think it was a free kick,” said Power.
“However, the Cambridge players reacted and that affected the referee’s reaction.
“When I went in to speak with him afterwards with assistant manager Grant Brown we felt we were only going to have a one-match ban. So to get a three game one was pretty harsh.
“So, I’ve had a bit of a break, and if the gaffer picks me I will be raring to go.”
