What I don't understand is we knew what was coming, big players, lots of crosses.

If you give a team like Lincoln time out wide to deliver crosses they will hurt you.

Answer is to stop them getting in good crosses from wide areas, make the rush, or pass it back.

Tall players are no good if they don't get good delivery.

Great point !
What's the point running over if you're not gonna stop the ball coming in ?

Highlights make for uncomfortable viewing and Bignot, dear me...
Might be ok getting forward but wondering if we need a full back sooner rather than later.
Walker is very promising but not convinced he's the best defender at RB.

Indeed. Said the same thing elsewhere.

Maybe McKeown should have come for the ball but as a defender Bignot should not have slowed down until the ball was won so he gets all the blame from me. Can't wait until Aswad is back so Magnay can play there.

Just watched the highlights, so heres my view.
1st goal Toto gets caught ball watching but the goalscorer seems to come from deep with no midfield player tracking him, poor goal to concede.
I'm a fan of LJL but his two one on one finishes are absolutely pathetic from a professional footballer.
Bignot has had a shocker for the penalty (that they scored) expecting Macca to come all that way and claim is ridiculous, get rid of it.
Superb finish from Pittman, we've got one hell of a player on our hands.

As for the rest of the performance, the formation and the managers decision I can't really comment.

Sitting right behind where Bignot gave the penalty away,he was shielding the ball waiting for McKeown to come for it,it was when the Lincoln player got past him he brought him down.

In terms of tactics/selections, I'm afraid Hurst got it wrong.   Yes he scored and yes he's our captain but Disley hasn't looked on song for the last 6-8 months.  The four of Brown, Clay, McLaughlin and Neilson have showed the tempo and intensity we need to succeed in this division, unfortunately Disley can't offer that at present.  By all means a good player for the squad and to bring on late to steady the ship but definitely not at the levels of the previously mentioned four other midfielders.

For me we lost it not when Pearson went off but when we took Clay off.  His work and graft in the middle is so under-rated.  As good as Brown is, he doesn't seem half as effective without Clay.  They seem to have developed a great understanding in there and work so well together.  

Can't argue with any of the very valid points made about giving them too much width.  Neilson naturally comes inside so I'm not sure there's a need to go with an actual diamond.  If anything when he's told to play central he's more restricted than when he floats in off the wing.  When cutting inside from the wing he drags players with him to upset the opposition balance.  When central it's easier to just put a holding midfielder on him.

Worst we've been at the back all season.  We missed Boyce, did on Saturday too.  Sooner we can arrange a loan return with permanent deal to follow the better for me.  As good as Toto and Pearson are, we're better with Boyce in the side.

Tactically we got it wrong, we were sloppy at the back and we missed great chances at the other end.  Overall we were pretty poor but form generally goes out the window in a derby fixture and it's often a battle of the wills.  Like it or not, Tuesday night Lincoln deserved the win as they wanted it more than us.
They won't keep that tempo up all season and we won't be so poor many times either.

Agree with that DH, though I think we were unlucky to lose. Yes they could have been out of sight at H/T after hitting the woodwork and missing a pen, but then the same could be said if Neilsons effort had gone inside the post as we were in total control for that period.
In the end it took a goal that most refs wouldn't have allowed to separate the teams. I don't think anyone would have complained at a 2-2 draw such was the amount of incidents and chances at either end.

And I'll avoid any future Town games with Mr D England in charge.

Agree DHM.
