Lincoln City   2 - 1   Southend

Lincoln v Southend

Lincoln City 2-1 Southend

Ashley Grimes' double gave Lincoln an important win over Southend and manager Steve Tilson the bragging rights over his former club.

Grimes poked the hosts ahead after Shrimpers keeper Rhys Evans spilled Mustapha Carayol's shot.

Blair Sturrock fired in from six yards to draw the visitors level but Tilson, who managed Southend for seven years, had the last laugh.

After some smart footwork, Grimes broke free of the defence and smashed home.


Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire:
"Apart from it being against Southend it was a big three points for us. We're on 45 points, another five and we should be safe.

"I thought we raised our game in the second half, we were excellent in the 15 minutes until they scored which put us on the back foot, but again we took the game to them and I was proud of the lads.

"Ashley's got 16 goals now in 19 games, his second was a fantastic finish and it was a poacher's goal for the first one. If we can keep him (next season) it will be a miracle. I'd love to but I'm sure there will be higher clubs after him."

Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:
"We seemed to dominate long parts of the first half and 20 minutes of the second half.

"I tend to put a lot of the blame on me, because I went for the win.

"We're away from home, I maybe should have reined some of them back in rather than attacking."
