Lincoln City manager Chris Moyses says his side are desperate to put last month’s defeat at Chester right as the two sides meet at Sincil Bank on Saturday.
The Imps were beaten 4-0 at Chester at the end of January in a match they were reduced to nine men.
Disciplinary has been a problem for Lincoln this season by Moyses insists that is something the team is trying to overcome and put right.
“The whole Chester day haunts me and I would love nothing better than to put it right on Saturday.”
“We’re working hard to keep eleven men on the field.”
“If we can keep eleven on the field we’ve got a chance of at least coming away with something away from home.”
The Imps will be glad to return to home comforts on Saturday having lost their last four away games on the spin without scoring a goal and Moyses
“We’ve had lengthy discussions with players and the coaching staff.”
“It’s a fragile thing. The lads seem to think that if they go a goal down then they can’t get back for some reason that I don’t know why.
“It’s something we are working on be it in a formation or a change of personnel.”
In terms of personnel, Moyses confirmed that the club have signed Southport’s John Marsden until the end of the season and he will be available for the match if the relevant paperwork is complete on time.
“He’s technically a very good player and he has scored numerous goals for Southport this season but has been a bit of a bit-part player for them due to the way they play and we feel he will fit more readily into our system.”
One player Lincoln will be without is Tony Diagne, who will be missing with a stomach injury but Tom Miller is fit and ready to play and Moyses says it’s nice to have a near full squad to pick from.
“It is nice. What I am trying to get to is having cover in every position and at the moment I haven’t got cover on the left hand side at left back.”
However that is something that may be close to being resolved as Moyses says the club are closing in on another new signing.
“If I get the green light this morning then I can let you all know who I’ve got in.”
With the club expecting a bumper crowd due to their latest ticket offer on Saturday, Moyses is excited to show the fans what his side is all about.
“We’ve got exciting players. In Tomlinson we have an attacking winger, we have attacking full-backs and we try and get the ball down a play a bit of football.”
