Dynamo back on home turf

Loughborough Dynamo will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Lincoln United at the ADT Stadium on Saturday.

Dynamo come into the clash having suffered back-to-back defeats after they were beaten by Stamford in the FA Trophy before losing to Frickley Athletic in mid-week.

However, Lee Attenborough’s side won their last home BetVictor Northern Premier League South East match as they dismantled Market Drayton Town 7-0.

Goals from Alex Steadman, Charlie Scanlon, Josh Riley, Luke Thorogood, Danny Gordon and a brace from Rob Norris helped Loughborough on their way to a first league victory since August.

Last meeting

Dynamo produced a five-star performance when they last faced Lincoln back in April. Karl Demidh, Ruben Asamoah and Steadman were all on the scoresheet as well as Ryan Robbins, who netted double to hand the Moes their third home win in a row.

Team news

The Moes have no fresh injury concerns ahead of this weekend’s clash, whilst Riley and Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson are still unavailable.

On the opposition

Lincoln have had a mixed start to the 2019/20 campaign, winning four of their 11 league fixtures so far.

The Whites therefore sit in 11th position having picked up 12 points from a possible 33, scoring just 15 goals in the process.

Danny North is Lincoln’s top scorer with four goals. Two of those have come in his last three matches.

Nathan Jarman, Alberto Seidi and Mark Gray have all scored two and will be looking to add to that at the weekend.

Gaffer’s thoughts

Dynamo boss Attenborough will be hoping that his side can play to their ‘potential’ and cause them problems when they meet-up against United on Saturday.

“It’s a game that we’ve got to target to win; definitely,” the 29-year-old said.

“I know Lincoln lost on Monday at home to Newcastle. They’ll be looking to try and bounce back.

“So as I always say, we’ve got to be right. I know if we play to our potential and we get our dangermen on the ball. We’ll cause some problems but obviously it’s going to be about who is better on the day.”

He added: “For us, we need to get back to winning ways. We need to try and string a few results together so it is important.

“What you don’t want to do is lose two or three on the bounce then all of a sudden confidence goes and the next games become a lot more difficult.”
