Lincoln City scored six goals on the road for the first time since 1932 yesterday, as they battered a sorry Port Vale 2-6 at Vale Park on Saturday afternoon.
The League Two leaders scored three goals in each half, as The Imps cruised to a 2-6 win in front of the away fans yesterday afternoon. Goals from Harry Anderson (3), Shay McCartan (38), Leon Legge (45’+5 OG), Michael Bostwick (48), Scott Wharton (78) and James Wilson (84) helped Lincoln City stay top of the League, four points clear of 2nd place Exeter City.
The win was The Imps’ tenth of the season, succumbing Port Vale to their third consecutive loss and down to 16th place on 14 points – seven points behind the play-offs and six points above the relegation places.
Lincoln City fans were understandably thrilled with the result, and are starting to believe in their side as title candidates for this season.
Well, well, well where do you even start to try & sum @LincolnCity_FC up today?! Injuries, illness in the camp then a forced change just before kick off. Some serious togetherness in our team! A point away from home is always a good point, but to win 2-6 is different gravy! #Imps
