Imps 2 Morecambe 1

8 February 2022

Two first-half strikes courtesy of Morgan Whittaker and Cohen Bramall were enough for the Imps to secure all three points against Morecambe in a 2-1 victory. Michael was appreciative of the efforts from supporters who helped see his side over the line.

Appleton said: “In the second half there was a nervousness, I could sense it and the players could as well. 

“Then a minute or two before the 90 was up, the place just erupted and they knew they had to get behind the players .That was really pleasing and so hopefully we will get the same going forward.”

With two more upcoming home games against Wycombe and Doncaster, the boss was pleased with the commitment he saw from his players and believes the league table could look very different after a run of games.

He added: “I thought we were outstanding in the first 25 minutes, we passed the test over the course of the 90 minutes, and I was glad to see people putting bodies on the line and that we got the reward we deserved from game.

“There are going to be teams that you don’t think are in danger who, in ten games time, will be in and around it. 

“We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and we know if we hit a certain number of points over the next two months then we’ll be fine.”

Tickets for both upcoming home fixtures against Wycombe and Doncaster are available now and can be purchased now
