How on earth Lincoln robbed us of 3 points I'll never know, was it even a penalty?

Great performance by Town, shows we can mix it with the supposedly best.

Great performance from all the players today. We were by far the better side through the game. They had two shots in the second half, one was a very very harsh penalty. Woolford was unplayable constantly beating man after man. His goal was a very good finish after a cross was knocked back to him in the center of the D.
Lincoln couldn't keep the ball and were constantly harried into giving it back. Our defence easily kept them at bay while up front we looked inventive and could have had more but for last ditch defending.

To an outsider you would have thought it was Town that were walking the league and not the wimps. Very lucky team.

Walking away my main thoughts are how impressive Town where in terms of endeavour, work rate, attitude and wanting to take the game to the so called big (spenders) guns.

We deserved all 3 and where pretty much robbbed by a ref and a player who has form.

Well done Town, really good effort.

Gutted!

Not a victory but definitely a moral victory. No way did they deserve a point from that game, but Akinde did what Akinde does and the ref falls for it again. I think that was their only shot at goal that troubled us, and despite having their fair share of the ball, they didn't do much at all with it.

Rumours of their greatness and our demise looked a bit premature on that showing and twice in the game we had spells where we had them under intense pressure, but credit to Lincoln, they dug in and rode the storms. It was all about the second goal today, and as well as we played, we just couldn't get it. Thought Boyeson had a good game until the pen, but i think he got that one wrong. I'll need to see it again, but that twit has done it so many times, he's an expert con artist. Wouldn't have minded so much had they scored a good goal, a bit like ours in fact, which was an excellent strike from the games best player Woolford. He was finding holes in their defence constantly, but it wasn't to be. Everyone did their part in what was a great performance.

The new guy showed in 10 mins what a good addition he will be. Good control, good shielding and awareness of players around him. He looks the real deal to me.

Did i mention i am gutted?

I question every time we get that helmet, why we have a ref who we have lodged a complaint against with The FA about and is Hull born. Todays decision was a flipping disgrace. But town were excellent, woolford best player on the park

What a game. If the gimps are one of the benchmark teams and we keep playing like that we have nothing to worry about, we just need to start putting all those chances in the net. We tour them a new bottom hole today. And that was never a peno. The ref reminded me of those blind ones we kept getting in the conference.  UTM

Certainly should have won but sometimes you need to make sure you do.

Woolford was my MOM although Hess, Whatmore, Welsh were very impressive. Davis ok defensively but delivery not great but accept he is a centre back really.

McCartan and Bostwick the Imps best players but they looked a million away from runaway Champions many of their fans claim them to be. Imps made more noise when they brought 450 fans than their 1800 today, plastics indeed.

Impressed today, just need to make sure this is the level we reach consistently

Yeah, forgot to mention their 'fans'. Very poor showing from them until they scored. Thought they would be roaring their team on in the second half, with the Imps kicking toward them, but they were very flat, pretty much like their team really. Think our team shocked them a bit and took the wind out of their sails. It wasn't the victory parade they were prematurely expecting.

Suppose it's pretty much like us when we get a big away following. Best when there's 500-1000. Get near 2000 and it gets a bit watered down.

My first game of the season. Very impressed with the quality of our football. Woolford and Welsh were the standouts in an excellent team performance. UTFM
