Match Reports – Official Club Websites
Lincoln City OS:
“Backed by over 1,500 travelling Imps’, City had to be alert as the home side played a high pressing game from the off and they were to have the first efforts on goal, a shot from Jevani Brown went wide and then Barry Corr headed a right wing cross off target but neither had Ryan Allsop worried.
City looked threatening on the quick break, and maybe could have taken the lead through first Matt Green who was slid in cleverly by Sam Habergham but Cambridge managed to smother the striker’s attempts to score. Then Harry Anderson was left with his head in his hands as he couldn’t turn home what was a fantastic header back across goal, The U’s defender George Taft doing just enough to put off the Imps winger.”
Report: Cambridge U V The Imps
Cambridge United OS:
“With Barry Corr back at the Abbey Stadium after signing until the end of the season, the striker was straight back into the starting line-up for the U’s as the only change from the side that was defeated by Yeovil Town in their previous League Two encounter.
Jevani Brown lifted an early cross towards the Irishman to raise the pulses of the U’s faithful inside a bouncing Abbey Stadium, which under pressure Corr could only direct wide off the mark with his head.
Lincoln City’s robust centre forward Matt Rhead set up the Imps first chance on 11 minutes, heading a lofted cross back across goal where Harry Anderson failed to hit the U’s target from close range.”

Match Reports – What The Newspapers Say
“Both sides had goals ruled out as Lincoln City were held to an entertaining goal-less draw at Cambridge United.
The Imps – fresh from booking a maiden trip to Wembley in the Checkatrade Trophy – had the better chances in the first half, with Matt Rhead, Matt Green and Harry Anderson going close for Danny Cowley’s side.
Cambridge looked more likely to break the deadlock in the second half, with Barry Corr finding the net twice, only to see his efforts ruled out by a linesman’s flag. The Us striker also forced an outstanding save from Imps keeper Ryan Allsop.”
Imps secure hard-fought point
“Danny Cowley said that it was the responsibility of the players to make this game a party.
But, in the first half, it felt less like at times like the party had long finished – leaving only those who should have gone home a long time ago clinging on to the dying embers as the sun came up.
Things did pick up notably in the second half – with Dave Amoo’s introduction filling the role of that friend who finds the aux cable and puts on a song that convinces everyone that there was legs left in this one yet, with his movement and place troubling the obviously tiring Imps and freeing up Jevani Brown in the middle of the park.”
