SORRY SHOW FROM THE WHITES

The Whites travelled to the north-east hopeful that they could arrest their slide and get that elusive win.

Their hosts had been struggling of late too, so optimism, whilst not high, was at least in evidence.

After an hour any chance of gaining even just a point was well and truly extinguished. Down 2-0 at half time Jamie Owens increased the lead to three in the 57th minute and from then on it was a case of damage limitation.

Lincoln United had started the game well and created one or two chances. Even when Marske scored in the 12th and 21st minutes, the view was that if they could pull a goal back a fight back might be possible.

The second half display put paid to that and late on further goals by the home side in the 76th and 80th minutes, including a third for Owens, meant that Lincoln had suffered their biggest defeat of the season.

It’s hard to put a finger on what’s gone wrong and manager Sam Wilkinson is scratching his head wondering how the squad of players who performed so well up to Christmas could slump in form so much since then.

The only thing is that these players have been good enough to achieve some notable victories and, with maybe one or two new faces to refresh the squad, they could come good again.

They may well need to because in this very odd league where results are far from predictable even the teams at the bottom could win enough games to stay up thereby sucking other clubs into the relegation battle.

Next up it’s Spalding at Ashby Avenue in what is a very important game for Sam and his playing staff.
