>Lincoln City 0-2 Northampton Town
Tuesday, November 2nd 2010
I don’t know what everyone was worried about! Five straight defeats, worrying about Sammo’s position and some poor showings can now hopefully be put to bed after we recorded a first win at Lincoln since 1992 this evening. Dean Beckwith and John Johnson got the goals, both from corners, to fire us three points clear of the bottom two and we can all breath again for now.
What could be the only worry is injury problems with Kevin Thornton not even in the squad and Leon McKenzie coming off just after half time. Both will be checked out this week ahead of the cup tie at Forest Green on Saturday but fingers crossed that neither is serious.
Back to the good news though and a splendid result at a ground that’s become a stinker in recent years and plenty of praise for the players for putting in a fine shift this evening to set us up well for both the cup game on Saturday and the next league game against a high flying Port Vale side. The starting line up remained the same and a good old fashioned slog resulted in the couple of hundred Town fans going home from Lincoln very happy….finally!!
