Lee Frecklington was in inspired form as he helped Lincoln to move off of the foot of the League Two table.
The middle man has a terrific range of passing as well flair and fighting spirit - all of which were on show as the Imps beat off the Magpies 2-1 on Saturday.
It is rumoured Freck could be joining Peterborough United in the January transfer window, but Jacko will desperate to keep hold of his talisman after many more influential displays like this.
He won everything in the centre of the park and his drive to win made him outhsine Neil MacKenzie in all areas.
He made the difference and continuing in that vain, it won't be too long until City pull clear of danger.
Bursting hrough the Notts defence when over legs were tiring Frecklington drilled the ball goal bound to secure the Imps' first win since August.
It is no surprise to see clubs chasing his signature in this form
