Aldershot   3 - 1   Lincoln City

Aldershot 3-1 Lincoln

Aldershot 3-1 Lincoln

Three goals in six dramatic second-half minutes sealed Aldershot's place in the League Two play-offs.

After a goalless first half, Lincoln took the lead when Davide Somma slotted in after a swift counter-attack.

But Anthony Straker set up Marvin Morgan, who finished despite a stumble, and then Dean Morgan made it 2-1 with a a powerful effort from inside the area.

And Marvin Morgan sealed a priceless win when he rose to head home in the 75th minute.


Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon told BBC Surrey:

"We don't like to do things the easy way at Aldershot, but in the end I felt we deserved it.

"The players have matured a lot, and we don't concede silly goals any more. We're a real menace at set-pieces now and that's a real part of our game.

"Collectively everybody has moved up a notch and it's a pleasure to work with them."

Lincoln City assistant manager Ian Pearce told BBC Lincolnshire:

"It's very frustrating. We played well for 60 minutes, had some good chances and when you're 1-0 up you should be able to see out the game and that's where we need a little more steel."

"We can't be content with just staying up and that's where the frustration comes in, sitting in the dressing room listening to their team next door celebrating being in the play-offs.

"We've go to improve. We've got to come to places like this, dig in, get results and get back on the bus knowing we've got more points in the bag."
