Lincoln City 1-5 Shrewsbury

Lionel Ainsworth hit a first-half hat-trick as Shrewsbury thrashed Lincoln.

Jon Taylor pounced on a defensive mistake by Gavin McCallum to give the Shrews an early lead only for Ashley Grimes' header to instantly level.

Julian Kelly then deflected into his own net to put Town back in front, before Ainsworth's 19-minute treble.

He got his first with a low shot after Gavin Hoyte's error, shot home from 12 yards for his second and completed his hat-trick with a wonderful solo goal.

Young Liverpool-born midfielder Taylor took his tally to four in three games since making his first start of the season against Burton just a week ago.

And Ainsworth weighed in with his first hat-trick for the club - his first goals since September - as Town romped to their biggest away win in 10 years to climb to third in League Two.

They had not hit more than five goals in a game away from home since the 7-1 win at Rochdale in February 2001.


Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire:
"They and Bury are the best two sides we've played.

"They worked hard, had very good movement and caused us a lot of problems and thoroughly deserved to win. They were better than us, simple as that.

"They've got a big squad, a big budget and players who we couldn't afford to get in, but you still have to produce and they did.

"It's disappointing on the back of a good run to lose in that manner but hopefully we can bounce back on Saturday."

Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"Some of the movement, passing and the pace we played at was absolute quality.

"Lionel Ainsworth's finishing was excellent. It was a new challenge for him up front, but his pace, control and clinical finishing was outstanding.

"With two wide players, Matt Harrold the target man up front getting hold of stuff brilliantly, and Ainsworth playing off him, we were scintillating.

"There was great service from the midfield too and the back four were as good as I've seen them. Lincoln couldn't live with us."
