Lincoln City 1-2 Altrincham

Lincoln caretaker boss Grant Brown
Caretaker boss Brown was appointed as Lincoln assistant manager in August 2013

Lincoln caretaker managers Grant Brown and Chris Moyses made a losing start to their reign as Altrincham picked up their second away win of the season.

Damien Reeves was their key man, scoring one goal and making the other.

He first dispossessed Thierry Audel and set up Simon Richmond to hammer in an 18-yard opener in the 45th minute and then guided in the second.

Substitute Connor Robinson got one back for City, lifting the ball over keeper Dave Parton, but they could not level.

Mid-table Lincoln performed better in the second half than in the first when they offered little.

Brown and Moyses were put in charge on Monday after manager Gary Simpson was put on gardening leave.

Lincoln joint caretaker manager Chris Moyses told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"I am extremely disappointed with the first-half performance. We did ok second half but were off it for the first half and I take the blame for that because we changed the system.

"For the last 25 minutes we had a go. We looked lively, we moved the ball a bit better and looked a threat.

"Altrincham worked very hard and we weren't at it. It has been difficult, but we have to be strong."
