Fighting Performance Ends In Defeat

Lincoln United went down 3-2 at second-placed Alvechurch on Saturday, but put on a fighting display which gives optimism for the remainder of the season.

The Whites' injury-hit campaign started badly when new signing Charlie Ward broke down in the warm-up.

The re-shuffled defence began poorly as the hosts went two up in the first 10 minutes.

After that, however, United grew more into the game and dominated after the break.

Skipper Phil Watt scored a magnificent far-post header but had to leave the field after colliding with his opposing number in the act of scoring.

Watt was taken to hospital for a precautionary check-up.

Sam Wilkinson's men then levelled the scores after an own goal by an Alvechurch defender.

The home side were stung into action and urged on by the home support began to apply the pressure.

United hearts were broken when the hosts slotted the winner following a breakaway.

It was, however, a tremendous display by the Whites at highly-placed Alvechurch and performances like that will bring more wins than draws or defeats.
