I am in Sri Lanka for a few weeks so watched the game life. The refereeing was not great in that it was inconsistent. The sending off would have been justified if the same standard had been applied throughout the game.
As for the performance we were the better side until the sending off without making any clear cut chance in that period. Even in that period though some weaknesses were apparent.For al, Lincoln were singularly unimpressive they were able to attack with freedom down the right and Ridehaigh looked exposed, not helped by the poor cover in front of him.
The sending off changed the game and the goal itself was frustrating for it looked as though a otherwise sound Nelson should have cleared the ball
The loan keeper did not have much to do but he looked at times to be twitchy in terms of his positioning. He did nothing in this game that Pilling would not have done just as well but for all their second half possession Lincoln did not really test the keeper once. .
Lincoln looked very poor and add this result to tpoints dropped at home to Rochdale,Southend and Accrington and it is difficult to escape the conclusion that whatever the faults of referees we are were we are on merit and now very much in danger of losing touch.
If money is so tight I would rather have saved it for replacing patent weaknesses than setting aside the as yet barely untried Pilling
