To follow a combined stats on Sunday with the match stats away at Cambridge plus the normal player ratings, minutes, fouls cards and of course goals count.
Thanks for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs
An outstanding 474 travelled to The Abbey to see perhaps the best display of the season. The tactics were anything but negative – going gung-ho would have seen us hammered – as the 4-2-3-1 stood up to one of the strongest teams in the division and away from home to boot. Their budget is 3 times ours so understandable Cambridge sit top. Yes we lost but if Lincoln had scored we would have gone on to win it (according to a reliable United contact even their manager Jez George said that after the game) The Imps shaded the possession (52%/48%) and enjoyed more shots (7 on target to their 3 plus the goal) with Farman making two saves to Maxwell’s 6 (includes 2 crosses claimed). We will play far worse and win, Boyce bettered even his own impressive start to the season and in shackling Cunnington deserves this weeks STMI man of the match.
