Stockport   3 - 4   Lincoln City

Highlights - Stockport County 3-4 Lincoln City

Stockport 3-4 Lincoln

Ashley Grimes scored a hat-trick as Lincoln edged a thriller at Stockport.

Grimes lobbed Matt Glennon to open the scoring before Adam Griffin levelled by poking in Greg Tansey's parried effort.

Lincoln's lead was restored through Adam Watts' towering header and Grimes' second from close range, before David Poole pulled a goal back for County.

Grimes completed his hat-trick after the hour to re-impose Lincoln's two-goal cushion, before Watts' late own goal gave the home side hope.


Stockport County caretaker manager Peter Ward told BBC Radio Manchester:
"If you score three in any game you expect to win it but if you make the mistakes we're making we're never going to win any games.

"There is a lot of things gone wrong a lot of individual errors today and certain people haven't done their jobs properly.

"Today they didn't even have to work hard for their goals, there's long balls and a lack of communication and they're getting in and scoring four goals."

Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire:
"We're certainly scoring but we just can't stop leaking goals at the moment, but obviously I'm really pleased.

"People can say it's Stockport and a six-pointer but at the end of the day it's just another game that we needed to win and I can't fault the lads for effort, commitment, desire and togetherness. We needed to put all of those things into today's game and we did.

"There could have been more goals at either end but we set out to win and it's a big three points for us."
