    Good turnout, that.

    Bet they're piss wet through on that open concrete slab, much like the Cods as Accy!

    That's an awesome turnout for a long way midweek, having to stand in an open terrace in the wet. Very poor of FGR to move away fans so that about a hundred or so home fans can make use of the previous covered away stand. 3 points will help them dry quicker though.

    Apparently most of ours sat in the seats to avoid the rain.

    Of course good for Lincoln historically, but probably less than our non-league average to the crossroads in Glaws, including televised night matches, and not really that good with 6k STH and 7.5 - 8k home fans at the moment..to be really good for an aspiring Lincolnshire massive you need a 500+ following to a mid-week 500+ mile round trip whilst sitting in mid table (Gy to Portsmouth last season...) ... and compare to Exeter to Barnet with 50% of Lincoln's current home crowds...

    154 from Wycombe at our place, which is a decent following considering the weather.

    Our allocation for Notts County has been increased to 4,121, having already sold 2,630 to ST holders. Goes on general sale tonight.

    That's impressive. Think you'll sell the 4K?

    Yeah, I'd say so. We sold 2,000 or so within 2/3 hours of them going on sale to ST holders on Sunday. I'd expect us to sell another 1,000 at least tonight, when they go on general sale at 6pm.

    What's the most you can accommodate in the away end?

    Aren't just about ALL your fans season ticket holders though. I'd have thought STH's would have taken more then they have.

    Glad they've been more proactive this season, they kept increasing ours by about 200 a time last season, which made no sense at all. Ended up about the 3,300 figure

    Difficult to say at the moment. We're comfortably selling the extra 2,000 for home matches at the moment and who knows what we'd get if our capacity was, say, 15,000. Tickets for Notts County have only been on sale for four days so there's still plenty of time for ST holders to get there's. I'd expect us to have 4,000 there.

    Good chance the Lincoln fans will outnumber the home fans then, and that's not a very common scenario in L2.

    edit - not exactly, as I forgot that County's home gates are on the up. So if the Imps sell out their allocation it would be more like nearly as many away fans as home ones.

    I know mate ;), but seriously though, that would be one fine effort indeed if they take over 4100 to Notts.

    No chance of that this game, we're experiencing our own feelgood factor at the moment (although perhaps not on the level of Lincoln), if we beat or even draw with Crawley on Saturday and are still 2nd I'd expect over 7k home fans. So should be a gate of circa 11k which is decent for this level.

    Gods gift - the stand holds over 5k but think it is reduced to the 4100 you'll get because of some kind of health and safety thing.

    38 Morecambe. Fair play to each and every one.

    Difficult for STH's to buy more tickets when the initial allocation sold out in 4 hours or so on Sunday night. The further allocation only went on sale around lunch time today.

    We had 122 at millwall for a night game last season and 129 at gillingham. I can't see us taking many more than that to our next few away games at Yeovil Stevenage and Exeter.

    82 Crawley fans at the Lamex.

    Atrocious weather so fair play.

    Fair play to lincoln if they can bring 4000 a quality following at any level of football. No chance of magpies being outnumbered should comfortably be over 10'000

    Certainly more than last time, looking forward to it.

    Sneaking in off the train at 11, where's good to go?
