Conference, Southport – Lincoln  1 @ 2,35  5/10

Lincoln is 4 place above but just one point more. Just is Chalmers (mf 4/0) out for Southport but this is pick based on away injury problms:

The injury crisis engulfing Lincoln City could deprive them of nine first team players for tomorrow’s trip to Southport.
Already without captain Gary Mills (mf 18/0), Mo Fofana (mf 12/0), Peter Gilbert (df 10/0) and Rob Duffy (att 3/0), Jake Sheridan (illness, mf 24/0) and Scott Garner (knee, df 6/0) were added to the casualty list at the weekend.

So with bad form, without victory ion last 4 games they cannot be optimistic after all problems and Lincoln boss David Holdsworth describe his preparations as “chaotic”.

“It is an absolute nightmare,” he said.
“We are already without a number of first team players while Jake and Scott picked up injuries at the weekend.
“But that’s not the only problem, illness has been a worry too.
“I could be without nine players for Southport which would severely have an impact on us.
“But we’ll go up there patched up and whatever team I put out I expect them to give it a real go.”

Friendly International, South Africa vs  Norway  1 @ 2,1 3/10
Bafana Bafana is very near start of African Cup of Nations (19.1 have first game with Cape Verde) so there is no space for soem experiments. Now is also important resault because of winning mentality and self confidence.
Dean Furman was rested for the final session on Monday, 7 January. The midfielder joined camp on Sunday, 6 January after playing in an third round FA Cup tie for his club Oldham Athletic in England on Saturday (5 January). The coach will select from all available players who have all been given a clean bill of health apart from Furman.
On the other side ‘just friendly game’ for Norway. Only is Ardian Gashi in Helsingborg (Sweden), all other players are from domestic league. True, some of them haw lot international expirience like Bjørn Helge Riise (30/1), Erik Huseklepp (30/7), Espen Ruud (26/0) but 7 called up players are without international expirience and will debut today. Also two players with 1 cap, 3 players with 2 caps so i must take bet on hosts because of motivation, expirience, they are in competitive rythm and home field of course, fans expect resautl on AFCON. Also Norway will get chance to all 19 players in this game (hosts probably not because as i said no time for lot experiments and resault is also important for them)  Continue reading
