Next up we have Lincoln City.  We've played them 20 times and have been victorious in 10 of them.  
Our last game against them was just over 10 years ago. 2 days after Gary Megson was put on gardening leave.  A 4-0 victory in the FA Cup 3rd round with goals from Chung Yong Lee, Cahill, Mark Davies and an own goal.

Also the team Phil brown scored his cracker with some classic commentary:



Our last league match against Lincoln was back in 1985-1986.  A 1-1 away draw with Phil Neal scoring our goal.  Some fine footage here:

In his pre-match press conference with bwfc.co.uk, Wanderers manager Keith Hill said that: “Dennis Politic is available which is good, especially as we don’t have Thibaud Verlinden”.

Luke Murphy will be back in the team following one-match suspension, the Whites will still be without Jason Lowe who is serving a three-game ban following his red card against Shrewsbury Town.

Head to Head

Wanderers have faced Lincoln 19 times with their first-ever meeting coming on the 20th of January 1899 resulting in a 4-0 victory for the Whites.

The last meeting between the two sides came in the 3rd round of FA Cup in 2010, which saw Bolton win 4-0.

This match could well be postponed, looking at the weather forecast for the Lincoln area.

Report: Lincoln City vs. Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers went down to a 5-1 defeat against Lincoln City for their first visit to LNER Stadium in 27 years.

Although Ronan Darcy’s second-half strike cancelled out Harry Anderson’s first-half opener, further goals from Tyler Walker, Joe Morell and John Akinde (2) ensured the points stayed in Lincolnshire.

Wanderers fielded two changes from the side that lost to neighbours Rochdale on Saturday with Luke Murphy and Dennis Politic coming in for Sonny Graham and Adam Chicksen.

Joe Dodoo had an early chance on goal after Ronan Darcy latched onto the ball deep in midfield, but the attacker’s left footed low drive lacked the power to trouble Josh Vickers in the Imps’ goal.

The hosts took the lead with their first foray into the Wanderers’ box through Harry Anderson who got on the end of Harry Roffolo’s left sided cross.

Remi Matthews fingertipped a whipped in free-kick from Jorge Grant over his bar as the Imps looked to increase their lead.

James Hesketh saw hopeful effort canon off the Wanderers defence for a corner.

Luke Murphy was caught in possession and the ball fell to Tyler Walker whose instant thunderous volley was parried to safety by Matthews.

Manager Keith Hill made a change during the interval with Chris O’Grady coming on to replace Yoan Zouma.

This meant a switch in the back four with Edwards moving from left-back to partner Toto Nsiala in central defence with Ethan Hamilton dropping to left-back.

And Wanderers were back on terms within a minute of the restart thanks to Darcy’s powerful half volley from the edge of the box after some good work from Josh Emmanuel and Daryl Murphy.

The Imps thought they had retaken the lead just before the half hour mark when Walker thrashed the ball past Matthews. However, the former Wanderers loanee’s effort was ruled out for an offside infringement in the build up.

Politic went close immediately afterwards when his curling effort flew just over the bar, but the hosts got their noses back in front with a sublime finish from Walker who bent his effort around Matthews from outside the box.

In response, Wanderers earned a corner when Luke Murphy’s dangerous ball into the box was cleared behind with both Daryl Murphy and Chris O’Grady lurking at the far post.

Wanderers earned a series of corners as they looked to restore parity in tricky weather conditions at LNER Stadium.

Politic showed some great control and a fine touch before carving out a chance from long range, but his effort was always going just over the bar.

A wicked cross from Politic and a glanced header off Dodoo almost caught out Josh Vickers but the Imps ‘keeper managed to control the ball.

With just under ten minutes remaining Harry Brockbank came on for Darcy. The Wanderers sub slotted into left-back with Hamilton moving back to centre-midfield.

A goal from Morrell and two strikes from John Akinde put the game out of Wanderers’ reach.

Best get used to it there will be many more hammerings to come. There is nowt to be done unfortunately IMO.  We are two seasons away from being able to sign a player of our own. EFL knows best ..dunno..

We can sign players of our own and give them long term contracts, the embargo merely stops us from paying transfer fees and puts a wage cap of £2k per week.

Murphy for instance was signed at the beginning of the season being a free agent, on a twelve month contract.

We were still in the game until the crazy 10 minutes when we conceded 3 quick goals but we did fall apart in the end. The decision to let Chicksen go looks more and more ridiculous considering Bunney is not fit yet.
That bit of optimism we had when we got into plus points has disappeared again and it's going to be a long end to the season now with relegation nailed on.

Long, drawn out end to the season ahead, with everyone prodding the corpse checking for a semblance of life.
I've seen a few in the West Stand in a similar state. We'll storm League 2.

True ….but still very restricting. The 2k wage cap for starters will stop all but desperate players who need a job.
The point is we can't pick and choose - we have to take whatever we can get.
So I can't see anything other than and couple of seasons in league two - then if all things are equal - we being the bigger club should be able to put a decent team together at that point and rise up accordingly.

Not many teams in league 2 are paying their players 2k per week, so won't be able to make that excuse.

Does anyone on here really think anyone else could keep us up this year? We started on minus 12 and had to assemble a team practically overnight from the bargain basement after having to rely on 16 and 17 year olds for a good few games at the start of the season and are still painfully thin on numbers due to the loans ending.

I'm not going to judge Hill until next season in league 2. Just be happy we have a club to follow at all for now.

Nobody REALLY expected much from this season, Hill has a big job on his hands, it's how he handles it that people will focus on, I'm of the same opinion as you in that he can't be judged until he has an even playing field and a full pre season behind him, but these strange rambling interviews are doing him no favours.

I certainly didn't expect to stay up and I expect a long spell in League 2 to come although we should be able to stabilise there with the players and money we are likely to have. I really hope the fans don't expect an instant return to L1 because there's no reason why it should happen.
I'm guessing FV and Hill recognise that which is why it's a ten year plan and not a three year plan.

I fully expected to go down, but our soft centre and lack of organisation on the pitch is worrying.
