Tilson & Grimes Aim To Shoot Down Robins:

Last updated : 24 April 2011 By Neil Hobbs

The rumours are that the Cheltenham game will be one to remember one way or another as the Gaffer seeks to shoot down the Robins. Tilson reasons attack is the best form of defence and that a rousing 4-4-2 attacking display will unite Impdom at an impassioned Sincil Bank. Then so long as Grimes chimes we could be singing one nil to the mighty Imps and celebrating a Bank Holiday Bacchanalian at the Bank. 



Here are the anticipated  teams & schemes minus the dreams and screams.  


 Imps 4-4-2


Keltie could well make the game but Muzzy definitely misses out as Tilson bravely sticks to his attacking instincts and 4-4-2.  Keltie, O’Keefe Fuseini and Kilbey vie for a start although the latter two are favourites with Howell out wide to compensate for the threat of Lowe and McCallum eager to meet and greet the Sincil congregation judging by his Good Friday sermon. Kilbey is probably better box to box and point to point with Pack, Bird and Smikle potentially posing different problems; although Keltie could be on if Fuseini feels the strain. Watts is also believed to be fit, although the faithful hope for a go for Green alongside Hone.  Hutchinson starts next to the returning Grimes although Broughton has been practising his knockdowns all week.

 The Robins Go 4-1-2-1-2

The Robins favour a diamond formation with the width coming from their galloping fullbacks Keith Lowe and Danny Andrew. With Lowe fortunately out with an ankle injury Andy Gallinagh will continue to deputise. There is further good news with battering ram Goulding still out up front and Artus also missing in the middle, although Smikle and Bird will pose big problems for us.  Cheltenham boss Mark Yates will keep faith with striker Wes Thomas, who missed a hatful against Macc and has once in his last nine games.
