Lincoln City 2-4 Newport County

Something a bit different today. Not lots of words and i will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Today the Imps hosted high flying Newport County and after the 4-2 kicking we received at Southport manager David Holdsworth promised the fans a reaction.

Felice couldnt make it today as his automobile had damaged its suspension. So off he went to the garage.

No Barry either as his good lady had told him that there was plenty of jobs that needed doing around the house; D.I.Y being the main one.
All this meant that i had to watch this shit-fest myself. Oh well never mind.

Things didn't start very well for Lincoln as Lincoln keeper Paul Farman was beaten from 25 yards out at his near post. A poor piece of goalkeeping on 22 minutes and the Imps were behind.
On 37 minutes Newport doubled their lead when City full Back Paul Robson messed up a back pass by playing it straight to Newport striker Aaron O'Conner who ran half the length of the pitch and finished well. 0-2

Worse was to come however. On 37 minutes it was 0-3 due to some more crappy defending from Lincoln.
On 44 minutes however we saw a chink of light as the Imps pulled one back through a smart header thanks to Vadaine Oliver. So was the fightback on? NO. Newport made it 1-4 just a moment later which was the signal for me to head for the..
So there we have it. The first time i have ever left Sincil Bank at half time. I am sorry but if the players can't be bothered to do the basics of football then i am afraid that i can't be bothered to sit in the cold and watch them. The Imps did make it 2-4 in the second half but who cares? Maybe Newport showed us mercy?
