Lincoln City boss Chris Moyses has a selection headache ahead of FA Cup tie

Lincoln City manager Chris Moyses says he has a dilemma regarding selecting players ahead of the FA Cup fourth qualifying round against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

“We have some nice options to have this weekend. It’s nice to have a number of players available after being down to bare bones last weekend but now we have a few to choose from,” said Moyses.

“Tranmere are on a run of decent form, the result away at Forest Green is one you have to wake up to, but it’s an FA cup game so it’s a one off.”

Tranmere also have a couple of players in their side who have played at much higher levels than the National league, most notably ex -Lincoln City striker Gary Taylor-Fletcher who has played in the Premier League as recently as last season with Leicester City.

“He’s just dropped down from the Premiership we know he’s a very good footballer, he’s experienced he scores goals. They have strengthened nicely but it’s nothing we can affect, we can just go out there and do our best,” said Moyses.

Chris Moyses also spoke about his love for the FA Cup and how it will be a good experience for his players to compete in it.

“It’s what dreams are made of. I really buy into it and I’m looking forward to it, the lads are up for it everyone loves playing in the FA Cup. It’s a good experience for the players.”

The Imps travel to Prenton Park on Saturday, kicking off at 3PM.
