Well done Lincoln. They played until they were truly cream crackered and then superior talent and fitness took over. So it was eventually an easy win for us and a trip to Wembley. Hopefully not a meeting with ManU who seem to have the wood on us in Semi-finals. Finals not so much of a problem.
In a fairly mundane for us, first half, not many talking points other than a super save from Petr to stop Lincoln taking the lead. Mind you, Theo had suffered an equally good save earlier but until he opened the scoring on the verge of half time, we’d seen why Lincoln top their league. Aided and abetted by some dodgy whistling, they looked a capable outfit.
Early goals in the second half killed off the tie and it really came down to how many we wanted to score. We even managed the ultimate walk in goal which hasn’t been seen for some time. It was Goliath versus David without his sling-shot and whilst 5 wasn’t as many as it could/should have been, it was good to see both the Lincoln players and their fans able to leave with heads held high.
