Paper Review: Crewe 1-4 Lincoln

13 November 2017

The Chronicle

A shocking second-half performance saw Crewe Alex thumped 4-1 by Lincoln City at Gresty Road on Saturday.

The Railwaymen were impressive in the first 45 minutes and led at the break thanks to a Michael Raynes header.

But they were unrecognisable after the restart as the Imps stepped it up a gear and steamrolled their hosts, scoring trough Harry Anderson (2), Elliot Whitehouse and a Raynes own goal.

The defeat has left them 17th in League Two, just three points off the drop zone.

Crewe went into the game looking to improve on yet another poor set head-to-head of results against the Imps.

They had only won one in the last 10 meetings between the sides, and you had to trace back to January 1992 to find the last home success in five attempts at Gresty Road.

But Artell’s men boasted three wins in the previous four home matches and will have gone into the game with some confidence.

Harry Anderson inspired a sensational second half turnaround as Lincoln City roared to a superb 4-1 victory at Crewe Alexandra.

The Imps trailed 1-0 at half-time to an early header from Michael Raynes but came storming back after the break.

Anderson made it 1-1 just five minutes into the second period with a classy finish before giving the visitors the lead from close range midway through the half. Raynes then inadvertently fired into his own net as Lincoln completely overwhelmed the Alex.

Anderson limped off in the closing stages but Lincoln still struck again through Whitehouse deep into added time.

The Imps got back to winning ways in SkyBet League Two in style this afternoon at the Alexandra Stadium. After going a goal down early in the game when Michael Raynes scored, a second half fightback from City brought a deserved result.

Harry Anderson was the man of the moment, scoring twice to put the visitors in front before Raynes got his name on the scoresheet again but it was at the wrong end from a home perspective but it added a third City goal. The Imps' weren’t finished there though as Elliott Whitehouse netted his first league goal for the Imps in stoppage time to round out the scoring.
