Lincoln City v Salisbury City: Match preview
Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson is expecting tomorrow’s opponents Salisbury to be a ‘handful’ when the two sides go toe-to-toe in the Skrill Premier at Sincil Bank (3pm).
The Imps are currently flying high in fourth place in the division and can boast a 100 per cent win record on their home turf so far this season.
Salisbury were promoted up from the Conference South and struggled at first with life at the higher level.
However, it is how they have adapted in recent weeks which has made Simpson conscious that tomorrow’s game will not be a straight-forward affair.

“Salisbury are going to make it a very tough game,” said Simpson. “They made some signings after a bad start and they are now unbeaten in their last three matches and have beaten Aldershot and Halifax.
“They look a big athletic hardworking team. To be honest, they look a handful and are energetic, getting up and down the pitch. We are going to have to match that and try and top it.”
Simpson also fears that the Imps impressive home record is also a big target on their backs.
And he is calling on his side to keep up the work rate which has gone a long way into making Sincil Bank a fortress.
“It’s been terrific at home, but teams are going to start coming to us and start setting their stall out,” said Simpson.
“We are going to have to be at it to keep that consistency as teams will want to take our scalp.”
