Ebbsfleet Utd 2-3 Lincoln City

Lincoln City rounded off the season with a hard-fought win over Ebbsfleet.

Joe Howe turned into his own net to put the visitors ahead, but Calum Willock levelled from the spot after Paul Robson fouled Liam Bellamy.

Peter Bore volleyed home a Jefferson Louis cross to put the Imps ahead again, and Jamie Taylor made it 3-1 with a simple finish.

Bellamy pulled one back with a fine volley, but the Imps held on for victory.


Lincoln City manager David Holdsworth told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"I thought the game should have been out of sight by half time.

"The performance was fantastic and I was delighted with the mentality of the boys.

"At the minute there's only 7 players retained and obviously we've got to make decisions.

"I know players that want to stay but it will come down to finance at the end of the day."

Ebbsfleet manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

"We had a go at it and asked questions right until the last whistle.

"It's a relief the season's over, it's been a difficult year. We survived comfortably in the end on a slim budget and that's a credit to the people involved.

"Over 46 games at this club I've got as much as I could out of the players and I couldn't get any more out of them. We've played to our max.

"Over achieving? I don't know."
