The Vital Lincoln City members’ voted for whom they believe was The Imps Man of The Match in their 2-1 win at home against Wigan Athletic in League One.

Views from Chesterimp: “Jones, phenomenal work-rate and really strived to get things moving. As has been pointed out on the match thread, also kept Grant out of trouble in the shove-fest (formerly known as ‘handbags’).

Running him close were Hopper, who worked hard for the team in a thankless, and by some posters unappreciated role, and capped it with a sublime striker’s goal for the winner, and Edun who while still occasionally defensively suspect was terrific getting forward all night.”

More views from the forum:

syimp: “Thought Edun had a good 98 minutes. Don’t recall any fluffed passes, so gets my vote. Hopper did a sterling job and deserved his reward. A great strike from Jorge, but wasn’t great for the first 60 minutes. Harry is such a revelation this season; rarely makes a bad decision.”

sedgleyimp: “As per my comments on the match thread, gone for Jones. Hard-working all match at both ends of the pitch and earned a full extra point for dragging Grant away from that kerfuffle at the end when a second yellow could easily have been produced.”

German Imp: “Hopper is the workhorse both as a centre forward and in defence (when required) he took his goal well, pleased for him, a bit of a reward for the shift he puts in week in week out. Likewise, Grant although a little off tonight hit one hell of a free-kick. Having said all that the most consistent player throughout the evening in both halves was Edun. Yes, he got lucky with one or two stray passes but on the whole, I thought he was exceptional both going forward trying to make things happen as well as his defending.”
