Imps rumble Rovers

Last Updated: Sat, 12 Jul 2014 17:32

Doncaster slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Conference Premier side Lincoln City as the Imps claimed the John Reames Memorial Trophy.

Paul Dickov fielded two different sides in each half, with trialists Peter Clarke, James Bailey, Jamie Ashdown and Cedric Evina, Elliott Kebbie and Nathan Tyson all getting 45 minutes each.

The Sky Bet League One side, though, were comprehensively outplayed by Lincoln, who took the lead after 55 minutes when Jordan Burrow headed home Jake Caprice's cross.

City sealed success with a goal worthy of the World Cup in the 81st minute, when skipper Alan Power flicked the ball over a Rovers defender's head and crashed home a volley into the roof net with Ashdown well beaten.

Doncaster finally mustered a shot on target, their only one in the whole match, after 84 minutes with Alex Peterson's tame effort easily saved by Imps on-trial keeper Luke Chambers.
