The Vital Lincoln City members’ voted for whom they believe was The Imps Man of The Match in their 2-1 win away at Macclesfield Town in Sky Bet League Two.

View from Chesterimp: “Wilson did well, seeing the highlights I probably underrated his contribution getting forward which for a CB standing in as RB was first rate, including the cross for the first goal (which had magical powers, it brought Akinde off the ground, a rarely seen phenomenon.

Be that as is may, defensively he had little to do and when Anderson was closing down, he was out of position behind which gave the time and space for the cross for the equaliser.

Anderson’s a hard-working winger who understands his defensive obligations unlike many dilettantes in that role; in what way does Eardley find him frustrating?

Anderson tends increasingly to lay it back to the FB for the final ball in (instructions, or a lack of confidence?), Eardley does that well when his radar is functioning correctly, Wilson also did well in that respect yesterday.”

Here’s how the poll finished:

Smith: 0 votes – 0.0%
O’Connor: 0 votes – 0.0%
Shackell: 8 votes – 19.5%
Pett: 11 votes – 26.8%
Andrade: 15 votes – 36.6%
Toffolo: 0 votes – 0.0%
Wilson: 2 votes – 4.9%
Bostwick: 0 votes – 0.0%
McCartan: 1 vote – 2.4%
Anderson: 0 votes – 0.0%
Akinde: 4 votes – 9.8%
Green: 0 votes – 0.0%

Some of the comments:

Impalex: “A surprise from me; James Wilson who, I sincerely thought, had his best game for the Imps having been thrown into the starting line up quite late.”

Bart Simpson: “Andrade for me again. He gets better every time I see him and there is no doubt he’s destined to play at a higher level – I just hope it’s with the Imps!”

Cricklewoodimp: “An excellent all-round team display. In the end, I’ve gone for Pett. He pulled the strings from deep, with a very accomplished performance. Bruno, Shakell, Wilson and Akinde were all excellent though.”
