Danny’s boys have got real six ap­peal

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

LEAD­ERS Lin­coln scored six goals away from home in a league match for the first time in 86 years to re­tain a four-point ad­van­tage at the top.

Harry An­der­son scored his sec­ond goal in four days to put Danny Cow­ley’s Imps on their way to a 6-2 win over Port Vale in only the third minute.

Shay Mc­Car­tan (be­low) dou­bled the lead and Leon Legge’s own goal made it

3-0. Michael Bost­wick added the fourth to end any hopes of a Vale come­back as Tom Con­lon’s free-kick and Ben Whit­field’s late penalty were mere con­so­la­tions be­fore Scott Whar­ton and

James Wil­son con­firmed a

10th league win of the sea­son.

Jonathan Forte put sec­ond-placed Ex­eter on the way to a 2-0 win at home to Swin­don with Jay­den Stock­ley mak­ing sure of three points just past the hour mark.

New­port kept pace with the top two af­ter se­cur­ing a very late 2-1 win over Steve­nage with sub­sti­tute An­toine Se­menyo scor­ing in the eighth minute of added time. Matty Dolan’s vol­ley af­ter just 46 sec­onds gave the hosts the per­fect start be­fore Luther Wildin’s equaliser.

MK Dons were 1-0 win­ners at Cam­bridge thanks to Chuks Aneke’s

29th-minute strike. Northamp­ton hauled them­selves out of the bot­tom three with a sur­prise 2-1 win over For­est Green Rovers.

Reuben Reid put Rovers ahead but the Cob­blers came back with an Aaron Pierre header be­fore Andy Wil­liams’ win­ner. Colchester moved into sixth with a 3-1 win at home to Crawley, who fin­ished with

10 men af­ter Bondz Ngala was sent off for a sec­ond book­able of­fence late on. Sam­mie Sz­mod­ics’ opener was can­celled out by Filipe Mo­rais’ penalty but Frank Nou­ble re­stored the hosts’ ad­van­tage and Luke Nor­ris made sure in the

90th minute.

Carlisle slipped to a fourth suc­ces­sive home de­feat af­ter a 2-0 loss to Morecambe, who had AJ Leitch-Smith and Vadaine Oliver to thank for their first-half goals.

Crewe’s run was ex­tended to one win in six league matches af­ter Nicky May­nard’s goal can­celled out Char­lie Kirk’s opener in the 1-1 draw with Bury.
