An early guide to Lincoln City's opening day trip to Northampton Town

Lincoln City have been handed a mouthwatering trip to relegated Northampton Town on the opening day of the new season.

While not a local derby, it is still one of the shorter away trips for Imps fans next season.

Around 90 miles away, the journey should take around one hour and 45 minutes for Lincoln-based supporters.

But like it did many times last season, demand for tickets from Imps supporters is likely to outstrip supply.

The Imps can expect to receive an allocation of around 1,200 for the game at the 7,798-capacity PTS Academy Stadium.

Read More Imps news says: “Away fans are located in the Moulton College at one end of the pitch, where 800 supporters can be accommodated. If demand requires it then an additional 423 seats can be allocated in the East Stand.”

However, there could be another way of watching the game, if you don’t mind only seeing half the pitch.

The website adds: “A large hill overlooks the ground, where small numbers congregate to watch the game free, even though they can only see half the pitch.”

Refreshingly, the Cobblers stewards sound like a friendly bunch.

“I have received a number of reports complementing the standard of stewarding, other club officials and the Northampton fans themselves,” said the site’s contributor.

Tickets details for the game, which will played on Saturday, August 4, will be confirmed in due course.
