My old clubs.

Although I had more than my fair share of clubs over the course of my career I always look for their results on a matchday. Since my days at each club the fortunes for most of them have swung considerably, some more than others.

I will be attending the Lincoln City vs Macclesfield game today so am looking forward to that. Some of my former team mates could be playing for either team (Scott Kerr, Paul Musselwhite, Nat Brown, Paul Morgan, Matt Hamshaw and Richard Butcher….hope I haven’t missed anybody !!).

I make Lincoln City favourites for this fixture although Macclesfield have produced some great away results recently so an away win would not be too much of an upset.

Staying in Leauge 2 with Northampton Town. An away trip to Cheltenham will hopefully provide an opportunity to start climbing the table. As happens often, a good cup run can affect league form.

In to League 1 and Notts County have the long journey to Carlisle to face. Always a tough place to go but I don’t expect County to lose there. They will hopefully establish themselves as a League 1 outfit following on from their financial ups and downs over recent times.

Scunthorpe have a tough home derby against Doncaster. I was at the Scunthorpe v Ipswich game a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed with them. Good, flowing football with plenty of energy. They were unlucky not to have finished Ipswich off in the first half. Doncaster have established themselves as a steady Champoinship club amongst many big spenders and that is something that Scunthorpe will be looking to achieve in the coming seasons.

Hull City travel to Leicester at completely the wrong time. Leicester will have the ‘Sven effect’ today. The crowd will be expectant and it could be a tough afternoon for Hull at The Walkers Stadium this afternoon. Nigel Pearson goes back to his previous club so should be a very interesting afternoon all round.

Leeds United are away at Middlesborough. The form of Middlesborough will make Leeds favourites to win put one over former Leeds legend Gordon Strachan. I hope that results pick up for his sake as he is a wonderful manager but I am sure that all Leeds fans will hope that this begins after today.

Grimsby Town play  Sunday at Kidderminster and should come back with something following their recent run of good form. They impressed my in their recent home matches to Wrexham and Newport County so now have some momentum to begin to gain ground on those above them.

Bristol Rovers take on Swindon Town on Sky on Monday so another local derby will be interesting to watch. Can’t call that one though.

All in all it could be a very interesting afternoon of football.
