Basford, fresh from Saturday’s fantastic, 1-0, Evo-Stik League Division One South, debut win at Gresley FC will be looking to build on that performance against a strong Lincoln side, who many have tipped for promotion this season, despite their opening day home defeat to Coalville Town.
Manager Martin Carruthers will be hopeful for the full return of last season’s top scorer Reuben Wiggins-Thomas, after the striker came off the bench at Gresley, whilst Blair Anderson may also get the nod from his manager, despite not being risked on Saturday.
Speaking ahead of the Tuesday’s game Carruthers seemed confident of what was required to get a result against Lincoln, saying;
“It’s another very tough game, I know they are one of the fancied teams, they’ve invested well this season so again it will be very difficult and again the mindset’s got to be on keeping a clean sheet and see if we can get anything out of the game.”
Kick-off at the Avenue is at 7.45pm and Basford will also be hoping for a bumper crowd to welcome in the new season and a higher level of football. Admission is £6 for adults, £4 concessions, £1 for Under-16s and £10 family tickets consisting of 2 adults inclusive of children.
The club's admission prices are amongst the lowest in the Evo-Stik NPL and represent excellent value for money. The club will also be offering its renowned hot food special of steak pie with chips & peas, at a very reasonable price.
