Power: We have to get behind Moyses

Club captain Alan Power says the players need to pull together to help Chris Moyses land the permanent role as manager.

Power believes that Moyses becoming the next permanent manager is the best way forward for Lincoln City.

“He knows everyone here at the club, and he knows we have a good team. A new manager could come in and some of us could leave, as well as bringing in his own players and tactics.”

“We all know him as Moysey, not Chris. He may have to act differently and be more commanding, but we will be the same with him. Even when he wasn’t manager we always respected his opinions during games or at full time.”

“As one of the older players, which is strange to say at only 26, and also as captain, I have to change my style to be more commanding on and off the pitch to help him.”

With Moyses becoming the fourth manager Power has played under at Sincil Bank, he admits that former boss Gary Simpson never got the best out of him during his time with the Imps.

“It’s nothing personal, but no, he didn’t get the best out of me. My style of play wasn’t his style of play, so I had to adapt to his ways, but I always gave my all for both him and the club. I never once let it affect me in training or in games.”

Power received the man of the match award against Altrincham despite playing in an unfamiliar right wing position.

“I usually play best in the middle, but I don’t mind playing there. I had a good partnership with Newts (Sean Newton) down the right side, but I did want to influence the game more.”

“Maybe the fans didn’t agree with me being man of the match after all the boos, but I know lots of the lads were nervous to make an impression, but we all can improve.”

Ahead of the FA Cup game, Power shared his opinions on England’s most prestigious knock-out tournament.

“Who doesn’t love the FA Cup? It’s always a fantastic occasion for everyone involved. I know Eastleigh are unbeaten at home this season, so what a good day it would be to break that record and go through to the second round.”
