Three To Watch: The trio of Lincoln players hoping to spoil Sunderland’s afternoon

Lincoln are a decent side with some good young players - here are the three Imps dangermen that Sunderland will need to keep quiet if they’re going to take all three points.

Tyler Walker

After a terrific season at Mansfield Town last year, Tyler - son of former England defender Des - has taken to League One football like a duck to water.

The 23-year-old is currently on the books of Nottingham Forest, but jumped at the opportunity to work with Danny Cowley in the summer when given the chance of a loan move to Sincil Bank - and, despite Cowley’s departure, Walker seems to be loving his time at Lincoln.

The youngster was on to the shopping list for Charlton Athletic, Coventry City and ourselves this summer, but opted to join to up with the Imps and his impressive goals ratio is sure to make his parent club sit up and take notice come season end.

Harry Anderson

Another youngster that has taken to the third tier for Lincoln this season is former Posh winger Harry Anderson.

With star-man Bruno Andrade out injured, the 22-year-old has really stepped up to the plate, sitting second in the Imps scoring charts and top for shots on target.

He originally joined Cowley’s side on loan back in 2016, but after playing a huge part in their promotion from the National League, Lincoln quickly snapped him up permanently on a three-year-deal for an undisclosed fee.

He’s well liked at Sincil Bank, but had to be patient following Cowley’s departure with his replacement Michael Appleton often only affording him a place on the bench.

Since breaking into the side in a win over Burton Albion, the tireless winger has made the right-wing berth his own again.

Harry Toffolo

Former Norwich City player Toffolo is another who has found his feet at Sincil Bank in the past few and the left-back seems to be going from strength to strength.

Tall for a full-back at 6ft, the 24-year-old has played eight times at international level for England U20s and has been tipped for a very bright future by numerous England youth team coaches, who have seen him come through the age groups at international level.

Despite being in the infancy of his career, Toffolo is vastly experience at League One level having played over 75 games for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Swindon, Peterborough and Doncaster during various loan spells.

He’s got a wicked left-foot delivery and Luke O’Nien will need to be on full alert to keep him quiet.
