Lincoln City go top of League Two after a non-convincing 1-0 win at the County Ground this afternoon against promotion rivals Swindon Town. Jamie Forrester scored the only goal of the game for the Imps. Forrester scored in the 63rd minute to secure the points for the Imps.
Swindon Town started the game the much better team and dominated Lincoln City. The Swindon fans were were well behind the team whilst the 983 Lincoln Fans were dead quiet until they went ahead in the game and all of a sudden they remembered there was a football game on.
The prolific striker Forrester scored his 7th goal in the last three games for Lincoln after the ball fell in front of him. Forresters striker came from 15 yards out and easily beat keeper Phil Smith who had a good game between the sticks.
Swindon Town should have opened the scoring on the 11th minute but Lee Peacock's effort went high and wide leaving the game as 0-0.
Fola Onibuje also had several good chances to score but failed to convert.
Lincoln City had a decent game in the second half owning possession for the most part. The Imps went ahead and the Lincoln fans came alive.
The game carried on with the referee missing many key decisions which should have given Swindon Town the advantage.
The game ended 1-0 to Lincoln and City now sit first in the League 2 table. The Lincoln fans rejoiced as the Swindon fans appreciated the effort's of their team who fought well.
Swindon Town's downfall appears to be a lack of a natural goal scorer, lets hope Ady Williams, or whoever comes in can bring in a bonifide goal scorer.
