Lincoln City find themselves trailing North Ferriby United 2-0 at half-time after letting in two very soft goals in their FA Trophy clash.

It was a poor performance from Lincoln which saw the home fans booing their side as they walked down the tunnel at half-time.

And their frustration was understandable, with City battling out for a chance to be in the quater-final of the competition.

Ferriby made themselves known within the opening minutes of the clash.

The lively Liam King had managed to pick up the ball just inside the Lincoln area and his effort forced a good save from Farman down low to his left.

Lincoln pulled themselves back into the match and on 21 minutes Wright went close with a header from close range, but it was held by Nicklin.

Out of the blue North Ferriby opened the scoring on 25 minutes.

The Imps defence went to sleep as King was allowed to poach on the edge of the six-yard box after Nathan Jarman flicked the ball on.

Lincoln struggled to get back into the game, and North Ferriby continued to dominate.

They pressed City hard and managed to double their lead on 43 minutes.

A poor header back from Nat Brown allowed Ryan Kendall to sneak in and toe-poke the ball past Farman.

Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson made two changes from the side which earned a 4-1 win over Alfreton on Tuesday night.

Out were loan signings Delano Sam-Yorke and Mitch Austin with the pair cup tied.

Luke Foster returned to the defence while Conner Robinson was brought back into the forward line.

    From what we saw to-day, the dressing has gone, and now Simpson has to go. In his post match apologized to the fans and said the only one who wanted anything was Nolan. WHAT you are just crazy Simmo please give up and go.And whoever the sponsors were said he was MOM. Please go Simmo, and take Farman and your other missfits with you. come onboys
