Lincoln up to 6th after Yeovil victory

Yeovil Town 0-2 Lincoln City match report.

Lincoln City jumped into the play-off spots with a 2-0 victory over Yeovil Town at Huish Park.

Second half goals for Matt Green and Matt Rhead made it three wins in three for Danny Cowley’s men as over 250 Imps made the long trip to the south west.

Sean Raggett went close for The Imps mid-way through the first half, but his effort was tipped onto the crossbar.

Yeovil then went close just before half time, however Otis Khan’s free-kick was comfortably saved by Josh Vickers.

Green made it three goals in three games when he latched onto the end of Rhead’s through ball and tucked his effort past Artur Krysiak.

The Imps doubled their lead 20 minutes later after Neal Eardley’s fantastic cross found the head of Rhead, who scored his third goal of the season.

Lincoln were able to nullify Yeovil’s direct threat throughout the game and prevented the home side from creating too many good opportunities.

The Imps will now host third-placed Accrington Stanley, who they beat 3-2 in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night, at Sincil Bank on Saturday (December 16).
