Lincoln 2-1 Southend

Lincoln City kept among the Third Division pacesetters after two second-half goals secured a win over Southend.

There was little between the teams until a 62nd-minute strike from Peter Gain broke the deadlock for Lincoln.

The midfielder ran at the United defence before firing a left-foot shot into the bottom corner of the goal from 20 yards.

City went further in front nine minutes later when the Southend defence failed to deal with an in-swinging corner and Simon Yeo headed home his fourth goal of the season.

Southend pulled a goal back in the 75th minute when a free-kick was touched to Neil Jenkins whose 25-yard shot flew into the top corner.

But Lincoln finished on top and had chances to increase their lead.

Adie Mike failed to convert a knock down from Ben Futcher and then Mike had another late opening but put his shot wide.


Lincoln City: Marriott, Bailey, Logan, Morgan, Futcher, Bimson, Weaver, Gain, Smith, Yeo, Mike. Subs: Pettinger, Cropper, Sedgemore, Camm, Willis.

Southend: Flahavan, Beard, Broad, Cort, Jenkins, Bramble, Selley, Maher, Smith, Rawle, Jones. Subs: Gay, Searle, Whelan, Thurgood, Clark.

Referee: R Pearson (Co Durham).
