Tough task ahead in Lincolnshire

By Paul Armstrong

Life doesn’t get any easier for Reds’ players and supporters with a tough task and long journey on the cards for Saturday.

They travel to Gainsborough for the first time in five years to take on Lee Sinnott’s Trinity side, currently going well in Evo-Stik Premier. The Lincolnshire outfit, relegated from National North at the end of last season, are in 6th position having obtained 42 points from their twenty five matches.

Back in 2014, Kyle May made the headlines when he played the final seventy minutes as an emergency goalkeeper at Northolme, after Danijel Nizic was sent-off on his debut. Kyle did well between the posts but we lost 3-0 and, like now, we were deep in relegation trouble.

Kyle has been recalled to the squad, along with Matty Douglas, after both completed their respective suspensions. They will replace Dan Wordsworth and Gari Rowntree who start their bans following the misdemeanours on New Year’s Day.

Lee Andrews will also be without top scorer Scott Allison (dislocated shoulder) and Kieran Maguire (working) so it was a relief that no injuries were picked up in training during the week.
