As so often seems to be the case, a totally uninspiring draw. To be drawn against two of the seven teams above us in the league out of a choice of 79 clubs for R1 and R2 is really disappointing.
Lincoln supporters seem even more disappointed than us. Apparently the two previous F A Cup games at Home Park have ended 4-1 and 5-0 in our favour.
Would be amazed if this was chosen to be on tv. Television companies rarely drag down to Plymouth to film and Lincoln lack the pedigree of teams like Ipswich, Sunderland, Portsmouth etc to create an interest. The dozen or so non league teams left will surely be of more interest to neutral viewers than our match.
Lincoln were the better team in the league game but the penalty that turned the game was laughable. The following Saturday they won again with a penalty that was even more ridiculous and had the SSN team shaking their heads. Without so many penalties this season they would be in mid table obscurity.
Probably one of the least interesting ties in the round, although Gillingham v Exeter is even worse.
