The Vital Lincoln City members’ voted for whom they believe was The Imps Man of The Match in their 2-1 defeat away at Sunderland in the 2nd Leg of the League One Play-Off Semi-Final.

Views from sedgleyimp: “I’ve gone for Tom Hopper.

We were a very different team second half and the contribution of the two substitutes cannot be overstated, but to me, I thought that he was brilliant. He was breathing out of his arse at the end but was still putting everything on the line to keep our aggregate lead. And that’s even without the two goals over the tie which has put him into a hall of fame position.”

More views from the forum:

Eweimps: “I’ve gone for Tom Hopper too, not just the winning goal but his overall contribution including many defensive headers. Big shout out to McGrandles and Walsh as their introduction changed the game.”

Chesterimp: “Hopper or Wyke? No contest, Hopper brings so much more to the game, then he gets the decisive goal(s).

McGrandles helped change the game 2nd half, despite the miss. Bridcutt worked to hold things together in the first half and get us back in it in the 2nd.”

hulloutpost: “McGrandles for me. Walsh shored up the defence but in order to win the tie, we needed to score. McG almost single-handed, changed the dynamic in midfield. Without the platform and momentum shift he created, we don’t get control of the game or score the goal.

In some ways, you could argue MAPP was MOM for making the change at halftime, albeit having to rectify his own tactical misjudgements from the first half.

The ability of such a young team in conjunction with the manager, to remain calm and so successfully carry out a full reboot after the shell shock of that first half was an incredible achievement by all concerned.

When you factor in the magnitude of the game, the hostility, the experience and physicality of the opposition, plus having conceded the advantage; it was actually astounding.”
