Lincoln City began their pre-season campaign with a routine win on Friday night against city rivals Lincoln United, at a wet Ashby Avenue.

Gary Simpson included two of his new signings in his starting eleven, with Diagne and Burrow making their first starts for the Imps since there moves, complementing last seasons players Farman, Newton, Nolan, Power, Jordan and Robinson.

A number of trialists then made up the rest of the starting eleven with Hamza Bencherif the pick of the bunch, although Gary Simpson admitted afterwards that it may be unlikely that he will drop from the football league at this time.

Lincoln City started the game well controlling possession, but it was Lincoln United who nearly took the lead early on with Andy Hutchinson denied by a good save from Paul Farman. The Imps then threatened at the other end with United finally clearing their lines after Bencherif powered a header against the post.

City were on top, but the deadlock would be broke at the other end, when a good run by striker Sean Cann was ended with a naive tackle by Hollingsworth, who crudely ended the whites strikers run. Danny Brooks needed no second invites, and he calmly slotted his penalty past the Imps keeper to give City's neighbours the lead.

Lincoln City didn't seem fazed by falling behind, and were level soon after when some good link up play between Conner Robinson and Sean Newton, allowed Newton to tee up Alan Power to slot home with a plumb and level the score.

The Imps could smell blood and were duly ahead moments later, when a short free kick to Jon Nolan was drilled home by the city midfielder, to round off what had been a good half in the engine room.

A whole new team was sent out for the second half with trialist Luke Chambers starting in goal. The back four in front of him was made up of Nat Brown and Tom Miller and two Belgium trialists whose names I dont know.

In midfield Danny Meadows was the notable trialist, lining up alongside Mendy and Everington, with a front three of Ledsham, Simmons and talisman Ben Tomlinson rounding off the eleven.

There was definitely a hunger to two of the Imps players play, with Miller and Tomlinson setting the standard on what would be in truth a poor second half. As was the case last season these two were a cut above as the Imps looked for a third goal to kill off the game as a contest.

Alex Simmons was also putting in a useful shift as the game drew to its climax, but it would be the industrious Tom Miller who would seal the win late in the half, after a good knock down. Ben Tomlinson and Danny Meadows enjoyed some good link up play as the game petered out, but couldn't put the icing on the cake as the game finished 3-1 to the Imps.
