Shrewsbury   1 - 0   Lincoln City

Shrewsbury 1-0 Lincoln

Shrewsbury 1-0 Lincoln

Shrewsbury secured victory over Lincoln thanks to Kris Bright's first goal of the season.

Dave Hibbert's overhead kick hit the post and David Button saved well from Davide Somma and Steve Lennon, while Robert Burch denied Jake Simpson.

Button also tipped Matthew Saunders's shot on to the post.

But late on Steven Leslie's centre was turned in from close-range by Bright - the Shrews' first goal at home for eight hours and three minutes.


Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"It's a massive relief, we needed a win, we needed a goal, I think we had enough chances to probably win two or three games today.

"I thought we were positive, we've waited a long time to get a goal at home. The only thing that matters is three points."

Lincoln City manager Chris Sutton told BBC Lincolnshire:

"I think it's happened on many occasions now but we have to see games out. I certainly don't think we deserved to lose the game.

"I thought we had some very good opportunities but the least we should have come away with was a point so I've got so say I'm disappointed.

"It's about having a winning mentality, you've got to know how to win and that's something we're not good enough at at the moment."
