FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood head to Lincolnshire full of confidence after a 2-0 victory over Lancashire rivals, Accrington Stanley with Paddy Madden and new signing Ched Evans getting themselves on the scoresheet.

With ten points on the board for Joey Barton and his troops, it has been a solid start for the Cod Army, and with a side close to them in the league table, a victory for the Fylde Coast side will push them right up there at the top of the standings.

There are no new injury news for the fans, with Jack Sowerby and Conor McAleny still out following their knocks against Wycombe Wanderers, so the head coach will have a near enough full strength squad to choose from this weekend.

LINCOLN CITY

Lincoln City are new to League One after automatic promotion last season, and have started off life in the third tier of English football with three wins out of their first five league matches.

Manager Danny Cowley won his first match this campaign with a 2-0 home victory over Accrington Stanley, followed by another 2-0 win over Rotherham United. Their third win came against Southend, where they scored four against Kevin Bond's side.

The Imps welcomed Premier League side Everton to Sincil Bank in midweek, and played out a six goal thriller, with the visitors progressing after a 4-2 win. After three defeat on the bounce in all competitions – they’ll be looking to bounce back with a win over Joey Barton’s side.

LAST TIME THE TWO SIDES MET

ONE TO WATCH:

The one to watch for Lincoln City is midfielder, Jorge Grant - who has scored one goal for the club since their promotion to the third tier of English football.

The 24-year-old started off his footballing career at Championship side, Reading - before he moved to the Nike Academy and then onto Nottingham Forest.

Grant - who spent six years in total at The City Ground - played 17 times for the club, with loan spells at their rivals Notts County (two spells), Luton Town and most recently, Mansfield Town. He made the permanent move to Sincil Bank in the summer for an undisclosed fee and has made six appearances in all competitions since the opening day of the season. 

His only goal came against Doncaster Rovers in their 2-1 loss at the Keepmoat Stadium, and with his attributes, the midfielder will be looking to add more goals to his game in the 2019/20 campaign.

Match Reports

Report: Walker double sees Cod Army leave Lincoln empty handed

31 August 2019

Sponsored by

Two first half goals in as many minutes from Tyler Walker saw Fleetwood Town lose out 2-0 to newly promoted Lincoln City on Saturday afternoon.

Despite Town having their fair share of possession in the opening half an hour, it was the hosts who took the lead from Walker after Toffolo’s cross on the left hand side. The Nottingham Forest loanee doubled the score line just a minute later after a nice calm finish from close range.

Joey Barton’s side again threw caution to the wind in the second half, but failed to beat City goalkeeper Josh Vickers, and return back to the Fylde Coast without anything to show for their efforts.

It was a quick start to the game in Lincolnshire, with Josh Morris having the first shot of the game. However he saw his effort hit Harrison Biggins, with the former Scunthorpe man’s shot looking goal bound.

The host’s midfielder Jack Payne – who spent last season on loan at Bradford City – worked the ball well on the right side and when he wriggled through Danny Andrew, he managed to pick out Harry Anderson, whose header at goal was comfortable for Matt Gilks between the sticks.

Payne was the man Town had to watch, and when he again got past the back four he looked to pull the trigger, only to be denied by Harry Souttar who dived across the box to get a toe to deflect it out for a corner.

The first goal came from Walker, who headed home from Toffolo’s cross into the Fleetwood penalty area. A goal which the home side hardly deserved given the run of play. 

With Town still recovering from that setback, Walker doubled his side’s lead when a long ball over the top beat Souttar and Peter Clarke, with the forward was there to slot the ball under Gilks’ legs and into the back of the net.

Lincoln had the impetus heading into the break, and could have made it three with a set-piece 20 yards out from goal, but Jorge Grant’s effort could only hit the defensive wall.

Barton made one change at the break and that saw Clarke be replaced by forward Ched Evans.

There was little change in the pattern of the game, and when Ash Hunter was introduced he seemed to inject a bit of pace and intensity into Town’s attacks and with a quick cross into the box, Madden was there – however he couldn’t direct his header goal wards.

Andrew had Fleetwood’s first shot on target in the second half with his free-kick, but Vickers was there to match the full back and parry his effort out for a corner.

Town grew as the referee’s watch ticked towards the 90 minute mark, and when Jordan Rossiter looked to curl one goal wards, he had Vickers there to prevent him from pulling one back for the away side.

Kyle Dempsey was introduced into the fray at Sincil Bank, for his first appearance for the club since December last year. However, he, nor the rest of the team, could pull a goal back to make it an interesting finale, and Fleetwood leave the newly promoted Imps without any points.  

Lincoln XI: Vickers (GK), Toffolo, Shackell, Payne, Bostwick, Walker (Akinde 70’), Grant (Andrade 75’), Morrell, Connolly (O’Connor 75’), Eardley, Anderson.

Sub not used: Smith (GK), Bolger, Chapman, Lewis.

Town XI: Gilks (GK), Coyle, Andrew, Clarke (Evans 46’), Souttar, Burns, Morris, Coutts ©, Rossiter (Dempsey 77’), Madden, Biggins (Hunter 54’).
