Paul Rachubka, signed on Friday on an emergency 7-day loan from Huddersfield Town because of injuries to Mark Tyler and Luke McShane, is let down by a mistake-prone defence. Lincoln City's Ryan Amoo scores his first professional goal, but former Imps Peter Gain and Simon Yeo combine to level the score before half-time. The mistakes become more frequent: Jamie Forrester is guilty of missing a perfect chance, but Ryan Amoo is able to take advantage and nets the winner. Keith Alexander doesn't seem to be too disheartened by a second consecutive defeat at home, “We were beaten by a top three team and I felt both their goals had an element of luck about them.”
