IMO

At the business end of the season we can't carry players that won't put in a tackle who thinks showboating is what is required to win games.

He needs to be dropped n build a midfield of.....

Top 3 is the only option this season with Grant starting this is NOT achievable

Still a player that can make things happen. Vale fans think he did ok Saturday. The defence did not. Why pick on one player, when the rest were bad too. Just get behind them.

In the 10 games he has played for us we have scored 17 goals. He has either scored, assisted, or been involved in at least 9 of them.
Can any of our other 'central midfielders' do that ?
The team as a whole has not been playing well recently, but dropping the player who can make things happen won't change that.
If we want to get promoted we need him on the pitch, not on the bench.

For me the problem with grant is he’s not up for a battle when the going gets tuff grant goes missing. But he’s an exceptional talent with one down side. But if he didn’t have a down side there’s no way he’d be on loan here he’d be in forests first team. If he could add the appetite for a battle like Murry had he’d be playing in the championship possibly the premiership

I don’t mind him trying those things, it’s nice to have that creativity, as you say when it comes off it’s brilliant to watch.

I thought he did well tonight, covered all of that final third. Monday's game is his sort of game and I think he'll show us again that early magic he showed.

Played better last night than PV but he looked injured throughout the second half, surprised he played the full 90.

So long as Lincoln play it around and on the floor, we will see Grant shine more. It's potentially more our type of game, unless they switch it to more direct

Do Lincoln play any other way?

Admittedly I’ve not seen them this season but with Reade & Akinde up front in recent games I don’t imagine they were passing and moving that much?

Watched a few highlights, they can play nice football and pass it around. I’ve said a few times and heard the same in that they can switch it from wide play to direct with two subs and it works.

Not saying it’s like watching bury, use or anyone else when in form but don’t always hoof it

Still creates though. I think tonight was a good example. of the way we should use him. Give him an hour to make his mark. If its not his day, take him off, but he has to be given the chance given how much he creates.

Different day, different ref, if he was wearing the Lincoln shirt then he might have got that pen.

He creates which a lot of our players are unable to do. He’s not a grafter unfortunately but he makes CJ and Tyler better players when he’s on the pitch.

He didn’t look happy to be subbed, he booted the side of the dugout.
