The Lincolnshire Derby takes place this weekend, a game that might not get pulses racing outside of the county, but one that is every bit as intense and passionate as some of the better-known rivalries.
Sincil Bank will be sold out with over 9,500 cramming in to watch promotion hopefuls Lincoln take on relegation haunted Grimsby Town. The visitors are without a win since before Christmas, but they’ve got a new manager in charge and a renewed hope for the future.
Lincoln are hunting their first ever back-to-back promotions after emerging from the National league after a six-year absence. They won the division last season, whilst Grimsby put an end to their own six-year spell in non league via the play offs the season before.
The home side must be favourites, but these matches often see the form book thrown out the window as passion and desire take centre stage. Lincoln are looking to build on their recent 3-1 win against Chesterfield and push themselves back into the top seven.
FLW have been looking at the Imps line up and we believe this is the starting eleven Danny Colwey should go with in his first ever Lincolnshire Derby at Sincil Bank.
