Following our 1-0 win against Bristol Rovers on Saturday, Swindon had the opportunity to register back-to-back League wins for the first time this season.

A second-half goal from Lewis Montsma secured the three points for Lincoln in what was a fairly even game.


In terms of clear cut chances, there weren’t many to speak of as it was a relatively quiet first-half.

Both teams had their fair share of attacking moves but side neither able to really challenge their opposing goalkeepers.

The first real half-chance for Town fell to midfielder Matt Smith after a Jordan Stevens dispossession just over the half-way line. The Leeds loanee linked up well with Hallam Hope, who cut back to Smith, but his effort was blocked by Lincoln body.

The only real talking points to follow were cautions for Matt Smith who left Liam Bridcutt worse off in a 50/50 challenge and Tom Broadbent who went in slightly late on James Jones.

With a few minutes to go until half-time, Hallam Hope brought down a lofted ball from Broadbent and turned towards goal. It looked like he was going to be brought down on the edge of the Lincoln box, but the Barbadian got the shot away, not really testing Palmer.


The second period was pretty much the same as the first with Town picking up a few yellow cards through Dion Donohue, Mathieu Baudry and Akin Odimayo.

Ten minutes after the break, Anthony Grant registered our first shot of the half with a left-footed effort from twenty-five yards out, but it went straight into the hands of Palmer.

It wasn’t until the seventy-fourth minute when the deadlock was broken. An in-swinging corner wasn’t properly dealt with as it fell to Montsma, whose header was caught by Kovar, but over the goal-line giving the visitors the lead.

Town tried to hit back on a few occasions but the main chance to equalise fell to Mathieu Baudry in added time but the Frenchman headed over the cross-bar.

That was the last of our three-game run at home - we now head to Oxford United on Saturday for the A420 derby.
