REPORT: The Imps V Port Vale
Port Vale OS:
“It did not take long for the home team to get in to their stride, with the first promising chance coming inside seven minutes.
The chance eventually fell for Josh Ginnelly at the back-post after the ball somehow rolled through the Vale box untouched. Ginnelly got his shot off approaching the by-line, which cannoned off the post and away from goal.”
MATCH REPORT: Lincoln City 3 – 1 Port Vale
Match Reports – What The Newspapers Say
“The Imps made a bright start with Ginnelly almost finding the net from close range, only to be denied by a combination of the foot of the post and keeper Ryan Boot.
It was no real surprise when City took the lead on 11 minutes. And to the relief of all the home fans and player himself, it was Green who found the net when he headed home Anderson`s ring-wing cross from close range.”
Matt Green ends goal drought as Imps return to winning ways
“Port Vale boss Neil Aspin said his team’s performance in the 3-1 defeat at Lincoln was nowhere near the standard they have to reach if they are to get out of relegation trouble.
The Valiants have dropped a place to 22nd, now just one place and one point above the relegation zone.
Vale fell behind to Matt Green’s 11th-minute header before Danny Pugh volleyed them level just before the break. But Michael Bostwick restored the home side’s lead on 53 minutes before Luke Waterfall gave them a deserved third on 69.”
‘Not good enough’ says Neil Aspin as Port Vale lose 3-1 at Lincoln City
