Stockport County vs Lincoln City: Imps pay penalty

Stockport claimed a third consecutive home win with a 2-0 success over Lincoln.

The visitors went close to an opener in the 12th minute but Jake Jones' close-range effort was well saved by Richard O'Donnell.

The Imps were handed a glorious chance to take the lead in first-half stoppage time as O'Donnell fouled Jones in the area. But Colin Larkin - who scored the winner from the spot at the weekend - fired his penalty wide.

Stockport started the second period well and, after Mark Cullen's effort from outside the area came back off the frame of the goal, they took the lead in the 57th minute.

Danny Hattersley received Cullen's flick-on in the area and forced the ball past David Preece at his near post.

A second was added in the 62nd minute. Alan Power fouled Matty Mainwaring on the edge of the area and Sean Newton curled the free-kick into the bottom corner.

    No offence taken at all mate. You might even see me at the bank. Just look out for the little fellow with two bellies and to make it easy for you to recognise me I'll have a rose stuck between my teeth. Regards

    Outworker silly banter is good fun just as long as no one takes it personally, which I hope you haven't, as I certainly haven't. Have a good day mate.

    Nigelsparky I agree.

    Outworker for me the board have to take their time in the appointment of a new man. I personally think that the board have panicked somewhat with previous appointments and indeed subsequent sackings. So for me give the job to Grant for the remainder of the season, and go from there. I would like to see a manager come in, that instead of just saying "I am all for playing youth and the youth system" actually does just that. This club over the last few years have let some very good, promising products of our youth system, fall by the way side, due to lack of opportunities. Currently we have an extremely good young goalkeeper, who ability wise, is probably the best keeper we have at the club, and is certainly better than anything I have seen at any other club that we have played against this season. We have two young midfield players, again that are as good as anything that we have fielded in there respective positions. One of which (Cobb), is the sort of player you need in a relegation battle, as he is what I would call a "ratty" player, always nipping around the "ankles" type player, that just wins it and gives it. As for all the names that are being banded about at the moment, any of them on paper will do a job, but just how good a job, god only knows, and time will tell. All I know is that we as fans, all need to get behind Grant and the team over the next few days, encourage them and who knows where we might get too. I have yet to see a team this season who I thought, "now they are way better than us" and if we can bring in 2 defenders, we will be more than ok.

    Nigelsparky, apart from the silly banter between us what's your opinion with regards to a new manager?

    Good morning to you Ngelsparky and how are you on this fine day? I don't remember hearing Wenger say"knock em into shape but hey once they have been knock into shape the mental and physical fitness would bring in the ability to learn tactics.

    G/Trinity were beaten by a team physical and mentally fitter team. The Imps beat Wrexham 4-2 and that was when the Imps were fitter mentally and physically. Regards Have a nice day. Theoutworker aka "copy and paste man", aka "little man syndrome" type person" (copy and pasted)."

    Wrexham 3 Gainsborough 1 !! going on your limited knowledge of football, I assume they weren't mentally strong enough or physically fit then yesterday? Little man do your homework please where Gainsborough are concerned. They have got where they are through someone making a quite substantial investment in the club, simple as that. Nothing to do with mental or physical toughness.
