Shrewsbury   2 - 0   Lincoln City

Shrewsbury 2-0 Lincoln City

Shrewsbury 2-0 Lincoln

Two quality strikes inside four minutes just before the break earned Shrewsbury Town their first win in six matches.

Lincoln City started brightly in front of incoming manager Steve Tilson, John O'Keefe's header hitting the post.

But Mark Wright fired in from 15 yards on 39 minutes when the Imps failed to deal with David Raven's cross.

And Town quickly doubled their lead when Lionel Ainsworth's fine crossfield pass was brilliantly converted by top scorer Jake Robinson.

That was enough to extend Robinson's goal haul this season to eight - bettered by only two players in League Two.

The victory lifted Shrewsbury up to fifth, two points off the automatic promotion places, while Lincoln now lie 21st, just two points clear of danger when Tilson takes control on Monday morning.


Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"Two quality goals won the match, and perhaps we could have had more.

"I don't like to pick out individuals, but I thought that was Jake Robinson's best performance for us, capped by his goal.

"We had one or two problems from Lincoln early on, but in the end we've ground out a result and that's the important thing."

Lincoln City caretaker manager Scott Lindsey told BBC Lincolnshire:
"I thought we did OK until the first goal went in, but goals change games and we went in 2-0 down but in all honesty I didn't think we did a lot wrong.

"We let in two easy goals again, which we've got to try to rectify, but we looked tight and organised and for 38 minutes I was happy, and we regrouped at half time and I felt we had a go.

"We have got ability and we have got pace which teams we play against don't like so I think there's certainly something for Steve to work with."
