The Vital Lincoln City members voted for whom they believe was The Imps Man of The Match in their 2-0 win at home against Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League One.
Views from PerthImp: “Thought several players had a great game today, but I’ve gone for Payne. His close control, use of his body to shield the ball and turn (sometimes without touching the ball – which I’ve waited so long to see in an Imps shirt) were superb, plus he played some beautiful passes.”
Here’s how the poll finished:
Vickers: 2 votes – 3.1%
Toffolo: 0 votes – 0.0%
O’Connor: 8 votes – 12.5%
Bolger: 4 votes – 6.3%
Payne: 33 votes – 51.6%
Bostwick: 4 votes – 6.3%
Walker: 1 vote – 1.6%
Grant: 0 votes – 0.0%
Morrell: 11 votes – 17.2%
Eardley: 1 vote – 1.6%
Anderson: 0 votes – 0.0%
Rob the Imp: “A hard choice, as there were several possibilities – Payne just about shades it, but could have been Bolger, Bostwick or O’Connor. Bolger particularly looks like a different player, I was very impressed with him yesterday after being far from convinced previously (and if that’s true that he wasn’t even well, extra kudos to him!).”
imps_joe: “I’ve given it to Payne, but it could have gone to a host of others such as Morrell, O’Connor or Bostwick. Then you hear the conditions that Bolger had to play under and he could have easily been the man of the match. Great team performance yesterday.”
Scotimp: “There could even be two valid winners: Bolger simply for playing when he was ill, and whichever player then had the biggest influence on the game. That could be Bolger too, because we could have been in real trouble with only one centre back.
Danny said in the post-match interview that he didn’t know what he would have done, had Bolger not made it. He mentioned playing either Chapman or Akinde there instead, which would have been interesting.”
