Great win but as others have said, I'm even happier with the performance.
That's the approach we need going into every game, mentally and tactically.

We pressed them all over the pitch, won second balls, looked fitter and stronger the longer the game went on and looked genuinely threatening going forward.

McKeown didn't really have much to do in terms of shots on target.
Apart from his run for their penalty, Akinde didn't really do anything (apart from the disgraceful tackle on Pearson).

Disley and Brown bossed the middle of the pitch, winning headers, tackling well and playing the ball about when we got chance.
Brown was very good and full of energy, breaking forward with the ball pretty much right up to when he came off.
Thought Disley was excellent and without having his usual goal threat, was the best I've seen him for a long time.

Magnay, as ever, was brilliant. I genuinely can't believe he is playing 5th tier football. It perhaps says it all that he often stands out as being an/the outstanding player, in a position where it is nit easy to stand out from the crowd.

Parslow struggled early on to get to grips with Cook as several crosses and attacks went down that side. But Mackreth did well getting back to help second half and Barnet stopped getting the ball out to him anyway.

Toto and Pearson were solid. Toto will know he got turned too easily for the pen but was unlucky to give away the penalty. One of those accidental trips where the legs collide whilst running. Dependable and composed from then on.

Thought Arnold and Mackreth, who both seem to get criticised a lot on here, both had good games. Arnold is quite clever and threads some good balls through to people. He doesn't look very fit to me though - tired second half to the point where he didn't have any acceleration left in the tank and he needed a breather after any run. Mackreth worked very hard and was up against a good left back.

The front two bossed the 2 Barnet centre-backs. Really impressed with Palmer, who put himself about, held the ball up and linked well with Lennie at times. Great finish for his goal which wasn't an easy chance, bobbling as he hit it on the half-volley. Looked to get into goalscoring positions and made good runs. Lennie was Lennie, strong, some good turns and lay offs out wide and confident penalty. The ball really stuck today whenever it went up to these two.

Not getting carried away as the test now is to see if we can maintain that level of performance week-in week-out. Even when picking up wins, we haven't played as well as that (bar the 2 high-scoring wins). If we can keep that level of performance as the standard, the consistency in terms of results will come. And, I would hope, so will the crowds.

Well done all round.

Was Hurst in the mainstand first half? Good to see Doig spurring players on and animating.

Made the league leaders look less than average, their left back was the outstanding player for them which says alot.

More of the same please.

A good though not brilliant performance from us. The most pleasing aspect was that nobody had a poor game - following Toto's shockingly bad defending for their goal, he recovered well. Nothing for McKeown to do, which was pleasing to see.

My only real disappointment was that we failed to really finish them off in the second half as we had more than enough chances to score another 2 or 3 goals at the very least.

I have to say that I was most unimpressed by Barnet and can't imagine they've played like that for most of the season as they have so many points on the board! Akinde looked very good in the first half, but quickly ran out of steam in the second half and offered little threat. Could have gone for that foul on Pearson which looked like a tired challenge, but I don't think he was deliberately trying to clobber him. Just a bit clumsy. You can see how they try to pressure the opposition with long balls, set pieces and throws and it was noticeable that their threat in the second half pretty much evaporated after they took their long-throw merchant off. This is something we're badly lacking in the squad at the moment and Parslow's struggle to chuck it 10 yards was a problem at times, though he generally did OK today. Surprised how cumbersome their defenders looked and you can see why they concede a few goals.

Let's hope we can keep this improved form going and it was encouraging to see a decent partnership forming between Palmer and LJL. We'll have to see if this continues or if he stays.

Great summary Tommy totally agree....did you see Mackreth take on his fullback and get a cross in after beating him to the byline.  Its amazing what confidence can just see Lincoln

Watched the game at a mates house on BT Sport and thought it was brilliant. I think like a lot of fans I didn't have high hopes going into the game but at least hoped we'd scrape a draw out of it.

But what a result. Was so proud for the players and the manager today - they absolutely bossed it. Excellent performances all round. I wish we'd managed to convert a few more of the chances into goals, but that minor gripe can't take away from what was a thoroughly convincing performance.

And what a signing Palmer has turned out to be. He was a commanding presence up front, he was regularly in just the right place for a passes or second ball in the box.

Maybe time to cast aside my doubts and negativity and get some enthusiasm for Hurst again, and the excellent squad that I think we all know are busting with potential and just need some more confidence - hopefully this result will go some way to giving that to them.

Well done to the lads. UTM.
