Lincoln not underestimating game against Tamworth

Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Tamworth, Charlie Adams spoke of his positive experience on loan at Lincoln City so far.

“Yeah it’s been really good, a great experience for me. It’s good to get games under my belt.

“It’s more direct here in the conference, u21s is more laid back, on the floor passing, but you’re playing for something here, and it’s really good for me getting experience.”

On loan from Birmingham and only nineteen years old, Adams has high hopes for his career, and is joined by fellow Birmingham loanee, goalkeeper Nick Townsend.

“It’s good to have Nick here, he’s done really well. We’re learning a lot of things from this league.

“We still haven’t found out about contracts back at Birmingham, so we’re waiting on that, but I’d like to go up a league and play in league two.”

Adams clearly has high hopes for his football career, but his immediate attentions turn to Saturday’s game, one he won’t be taking lightly.

“They’ll be fighting for their lives, but we’ve just got to play our game, do what we do best, and get the three points.”

Gary Simpson spoke about player contracts ahead of Saturday’s game against 23rd placed Tamworth, saying, “I know it’s not ideal for players, but at the end of the day we’ve got a core that’s signed for another year and maybe we can have a look and see what’s about as well. Let’s get the season over with first.”

Simpson mentioned that this season was probably his biggest experience of the loan market, and with Lincoln bringing the likes of Delano Sam-Yorke in, it’s been useful for the club.

“It’s the first time I’ve properly used the loan market if I’m being honest, and it’s not been too bad for us.

“With Charlie Adams for example it’s been good for him and it’s been good for us.”

But Simpson stressed this season the club won’t have to worry too much about panic-buying, saying, “This time we have got a bit of a core. I’ve got my eye on one or two, but we can probably afford to wait and see what’s out there.”

On Saturday’s game against Tamworth, Simpson warned that it would not be a guaranteed win, saying, “We know it’s going to be difficult. They probably need to get a result against us, so emotions will be running high, and we’ve just got to go there and be professional.”

“I am surprised they’re in the position they’re in. At the start of the season they looked like they had a decent squad there.”

Lincoln’s game against Tamworth kicks off at 15:00 on Saturday, 29 March.
