  • With no fresh injury concerns following their thrilling second leg draw with Oxford, Blackpool should be unchanged here, although Keshi Anderson will be hoping to get the nod over Demetri Mitchell out wide.

Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton says his side need a good start when they face Blackpool in Sunday’s League One play-off final at Wembley.

After beating Sunderland in the semi-final, the Imps will visit Wembley for just the second time in their history.

Appleton’s team face a Blackpool side who are aiming to win promotion back to the Championship after six years out.

“It’s about playing the game and not the occasion. There’s a lot of truth in that,” he told BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

“We need to make sure we turn up and start well. We need to play better than we did in the first half [against Sunderland] on Saturday.

“It’s very difficult because of the size of the game but it’s about getting the players to focus on the 95, 98 minutes, whatever it is, rather than what’s going on around them.”

Having finished fifth in League One this season, Appleton’s side won the first leg of the semi-final against Sunderland 2-0 and lost the return leg at the Stadium of Light 2-1 but squeezed through on aggregate.

Victory on Sunday would mean they would play second-tier football next season for the first time since 1961.

Blackpool had a stellar season despite a poor start to the campaign which saw them defeated six times in their opening nine games.

They went on to finish third in the table and dispatched Oxford in the play-off semi-finals with a comfortable 6-3 win on aggregate.

“Whenever there’s a final, you can’t wait for that game to get going so the sooner it comes along the better for us. It’s something we’re looking forward to,” boss Neil Critchley told BBC Radio Lancashire.

“I’d be lying if I said there weren’t doubts. I always question myself, I question the team, the decisions, the formation so there’s nothing wrong with doubts and uncertainty.

“That’s what helps you to prepare properly, helps you keep your senses heightened so you’re on the front foot with what you’re doing every day.

“During that period sometimes I have to look beyond the result which can be very difficult in a results-driven business.”
