Lincoln City have ended November unbeaten after a 1-1 draw with Welling United.
A fairly lacklustre first half ended badly for the Imps when the visitors took the lead. A counter attack from Welling left Lincoln short at the back with George Porter unselfishly playing in Reece Harris who comfortably slotted it past Farman almost on the halftime whistle.
The second half saw a lot more action compared to the first period.
Lincoln controlled the majority of the half and eventually reaped the rewards. Jack Muldoon from the edge of the area with superb 20yard strike levelled it up. Welling goalkeeper Tom King got a hand to it but the power on the shot was too much to keep out.
Lincoln bombarded the Welling goal for the remainder of the half. New signing from Bristol Rovers Nathan Blissett, nephew of the ex AC Milan and Watford forward, should have done better with a free header which ended up sailing wide of the goal. Matt Rhead then forced a superb save out of Tom King, a header from inside the six yard box was expertly stopped by the Welling man.
Welling had opportunities to when Sam Cornie found the ball at his feet in the box Farman had to get down well to prevent the Imps going behind again. Matt Sparrow then struck the post before Matt Rhead somehow managed to shoot over from the rebound with the goal at his mercy. Despite, dominating the last twenty minutes the game ended all square.
Lincoln manager Chris Moyses said he was disappointed not to get all three points: “for the amount of play we had second half, the chances we created we’ve easily done enough to win the game. We just need to be more clinical but that’s the first point we’ve had out of Welling so there are some positives.”
Man of the match and goal scorer Jack Muldoon said he was disappointed with the way they conceded: “they took their goal well but with one minute left of the half we have to shut up shop, there are three men in that midfield and we need to close that gap up.”
Lincoln remain in the playoff places in 4th, seven points off league leaders Cheltenham. The Imps travel to Woking next weekend.
