Full-time report: Lincoln City 0 Gateshead 1

Lincoln City manager Gary Simpson

Comments (43)

Josh Walker's second-half strike ensured Lincoln City's miserable home form continued as Gateshead clinched a 1-0 win tonight.

Walker struck just 11 minutes after the restart when he rifled in via the post after terrific wing play by former Premier League winger John Oster.

Lincoln tried desperately to engineer a way back into the contest, but their problems in front of goal meant few chances were created.

Defender Luke Foster did see a header cleared off the line in the dying stages as Gary Simpson's side attempted to rescue a point.

But Gateshead held firm to clinch the victory leaving Lincoln without a home win in the league since a 3-0 home success against Hyde in September.

    Hi Eatmy goal.The rust bucket brigade are growing day by day and far outweigh the unsinkable thinkers. There's not much we can do untill January anyway and at least we have a chance to try and put it right then. Well wait and see! Regards Mike Cadwell

    Well done Echo, but I suppose you can only print the negativity from the manager about his own players can't you, for the players to read even If they don't look at the forums it really helps I'm sure. Never mind boys keep your heads up.

    That would suggest Lincoln are thought of as unsinkable rather than a rust bucket each manager comes and bails out with varying degrees of success depending on who he selects to help (players) and the techniques (tactics) of doing it.

    I'm liking Lincoln to the Titanic. We're all warning of the iceberg ahead, and unless the captain changes course quickly we will all go down with the sinking ship! Regards Mike Cadwell

    Whats wrong with his so called 4 as he said up front, how can you do that when we sit so deep and let teams come on to us. It wasn't until myself and one other td him to push the back line on, and squeeze the midfield to enable us to push 4 on he did shout at them but only a couple of times. IMO he is giving us his value for money.Shame on you Simpson, and our board of directors. Don't give him anymore money in the window, we have a very good team in the squad of players at the club. with the money you got for Boyce, put it to good use for a change pay him off, and his players who have not performed since arriving at the club, and for me they never will, Wright is 6' tall and has no timing how to jump for balls for balls to win headers. come on boys

    Grimsby did the right thing in getting rid of Scott, and keeping Hurst, and look where they are now, with a manager who knows how to treat his players, Come on Mr Chairman get cracking before its too late. come on boys

    Listening to his comments on the radio this morning he is pleading with fans to stick together. So to me that in itself tells me he reads the comments on here, and he is getting very worried. So if you read this one Garry pay heed to what the loyal fans of Lincoln City Football are saying. Let your conscience be your guide.

    ..... well what can I say that hasn't been said already - nothing really apart from to concur with virtually all. At the start of the season I thought GS was being a bit cautious with 1 up front but it was important that we got off to a reasonable start - which we did. However, its obvious that GS has only 1 way of playing and that is with 1 up front - useless! With his latest comments he has surely lost any support that he had left from the players - Unfortunately GS now has to go - his days are surely numbered (maybe this is what he wants - a way out??) - will the Board act?? I won't hold my breath on that one! GS has now said he wants 3 or 4 more players - can we afford 3 or 4 more - doubt it! I want to keep the faith but its getting more and more difficult to be able to at the moment I'm sad to say. I'm not looking forward to the Codheads games or any of the others for that matter at the moment. GS does have to go as he has now lost all respect from everyone and most importantly the players! Will a new manager stop the rot?? In the short term yes as we have 'good' players and (hopefully) a manger with the experience to get the best ot of them and to adapt to slightly different tactics when necessary, i.e. someone with a Plan B. In the long term, I don't know - we need cash (don't we all) but who know where that could come from - if I win the Euro millions I'd help out, but am not holding my breath on that one either! C'mon you Imps!

    Listening to his post match interview led me to believe Simpson is defeated. In addition, to say that "you get what pay for" is a slap in the face to the team. How can you instill confidence in the team when he says those comments? I'm sure the lads are trying hard, but when a manager makes those comments it surely deflates them. It would me. Let's be positive and expect the mighty IMPS to win at Braintree.
