The Posh will have to watch out for The Imps’ striker Neve Hincks, who is currently the topscorer with seven goals in three games.

From The Gaffer

“We go into this fixture after a fortnight break. The players have continued to train, but this break has allowed players that were carrying niggling injuries to recover. That’s the benefit of these breaks. Lincoln will be a tough test on Sunday. They’ve won their opening two games and scored a lot of goals in those games, so we know that they are really strong in the offensive areas and create lots of chances, so will provide our defensive unit with a challenge. 

“On the other hand, we know Lincoln have also let a few goals in. It’s going to be an entertaining game. We want to start the game on the front foot and be the side creating all the chances. The game is at home, so we will look to use that to our advantage."
