Lincoln City have struggled somewhat since they dropped out of the Football League six seasons ago, however their fortunes have improved considerably of late with some impressive performances lifting them to the top of the National League table where they enjoy a three point lead over second-placed Dagenham & Redbridge with a game in hand.
The Imps have also enjoyed an excellent FA cup campaign with triumphs over Championship outfits Ipswich Town and more impressively Brighton & Hove Albion. Lincoln manager Danny Cowley is the man to thank for steering the Imps to these successes, however he will certainly have his work cut out when his side face their biggest challenge yet in the competition on Saturday afternoon.
Burnley held Premier League leaders Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor in their last outing and the enormity of Lincoln City’s task is underlined by the fact that that Clarets have won nine of their home games since the start of the season. There is certainly no reason to believe that this excellent home form will be put under any threat on Saturday.
Nevertheless there have already been a few shocks in the competition this season and there is always a possibility of another at Turf Moor. Lincoln have absolutely nothing to lose from having a real go at the Clarets and however unlikely it may seem, an Imps victory is a possibility.
