Lincoln City have entered form at just the right time, climbing into the play off places in League Two after a solid Easter which saw them collect six points from two very tough games.
Firstly, they beat Exeter City 3-2 in a real thriller at Sincil Bank, before grinding out a 1-0 win against in form Carlisle United. The win effectively ended Keith Curle’s play off ambitions, but put City right in the mix for the final few games.
It’s been a hugely successful season once again for the Imps, they’ve got a week off from league action now as they prepare for their first ever trip to Wembley in the Checkatrade Trophy. It could be the second piece of silverware they lift in a calendar year, not bad for a side who’s previous honour was the 1988 GM Vauxhall Conference title.
Many put the turnaround firmly at the feet of manager Danny Cowley and his assistant, brother Nicky. They’ve helped revolutionise a club, awake a sleeping giant and point them in the direction of success. Next week they’re set to receive a civic award honouring them for their contribution to Lincoln as whole. Some might say it’s already overdue.
Next season will already be on most fans’ minds and whilst the little issue of the vacant manager role at Ipswich rumbles on, the hope is both Cowley brothers will be at Sincil Bank next season. If they are, they’re going to have a couple of bold calls to make in the summer.
