The Vital Lincoln City members’ voted for whom they believe was The Imps Man of The Match in their 3-1 win away at Mansfield Town in the EFL Trophy.

Views from Chesterimp: “Groundhog Day, in a good way. A much-changed team but same fundamentals in place and a strong team performance to outclass another poor L2 side.

Gone for Grant who controlled the game but has so much more to his own game now, particularly off the ball. McGrandles alongside had much to do with setting the tempo, when he faded so did the team.

A young inexperienced back 4 all deserve credit, Ross performed capably, Archibald, Howarth and Scully buzzed like angry wasps, Soule battled manfully.”

Here’s how the poll finished:

Ross: 0 votes – 0.0%
Edun: 0 votes – 0.0%
Grant: 17 votes – 51.5%
Scully: 2 votes – 6.1%
Archibald: 5 votes – 15.2%
Howarth: 1 vote – 3.0%
McGrandles: 1 vote – 3.0%
Soule: 0 votes – 0.0%
Eyoma: 6 votes – 18.2%

Roughan: 1 vote – 3.0%

More views from the forum:

clanford: “Gone for Grant. Pulled the strings and was playing great balls all night. A shout for Archibald who I thought looked very good and took his goal well.”

cherryexile: “Could have gone for a few. I enjoyed Howarth’s energy, Eyouma and Anderson’s composure, Scully’s fire, Grant’s control, Soule’s tenacity and Edun and McGrandle’s steel, but in the end, I found Archibald exciting whenever he got the ball. He played some good through balls, ran at defenders, tackled like a Jack Russell and scored a goal. Not bad for a debut.”

Eweimps: “Another match where it’s difficult to pick a winner, a good sign. So many good performances admittedly against a poor side. Went for Grant in the end.”
