Bradley Wood believes Lincoln City can get promoted without Liam Hearn

After the sudden departure of Liam Hearn to Barrow AFC on loan yesterday it seems that it has left the Lincoln City squad in a state of shock.

The striker has been in good form this season, scoring eight goals in 17 games but has only played one full 90 game.

His reasons behind the move away from Lincoln City was for more game time.

At Lincoln City’s press conference defender Bradley Wood said some players “feel like they have been stabbed in the back.”

However, he does believe the team can “move on” and have a “good enough squad without him (Hearn) to keep in the play offs.”

Wood believes if anyone in the Imps squad had any issues then they would tell the group or tell Chris Moyses themselves as they are have a “tight nit squad”.

“You can open up and go to him (Chris Moyses). There are plenty of lads that have gone up to the gaffer and he’ll sort it out straight away.”

The Imps are currently in a great run of form and are unbeaten in their last 4 games after the shock 5-3 loss to Whitehawk in the First Round of the F.A. Cup.

Chris Moyses’ side have managed to climb up the table and are currently in 5th place in the Vanarama National League. On Wednesday night they drew 1-1 away at Boreham Wood and welcome Welling United on Saturday.

The 24 year-old fullback believes the Whitehawk defeat has spurred his side,

“It was a shock result at Whitehawk, the lads know it and it was the quietest bus I’ve ever been on. All the lads knew what just happened and the response from us was not lets droop, we’ll put it aside and go again.”

New signing Nathan Blissett will be available for the Imps match on Saturday. The striker on loan from Bristol Rovers has replaced Kyle Wootton who has returned to Scunthorpe United after his loan move ended this week.
