Match Reports

City ease to victory over Lincoln in second pre-season match

10 July 2018

Goals from Kenny McLean, Onel Hernandez and Louis Thompson helped Norwich City pick up a 3-1 victory over Lincoln City in their second match o

McLean gave City the lead moments before the interval with a superb free-kick before second-half finishes from Hernandez and Thompson saw the visitors cruise to victory.

City once again lined up with a back three with Ben Godfrey accompanying Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose in defence. Felix Passlack and Marco Stiepermann once again provided the width with Alex Tettey and Moritz Leitner in midfield. Kenny McLean made his first outing in City colours alongside Teemu Pukki and Dennis Srbeny in an attacking front three.

Lincoln are a team renowned for their aerial prowess and the threat was clear early on as Matt Rhead was found unmarked in the penalty area, only to head straight into the arms of Michael McGovern.

City got into their passing rhythm from then on but chances were at a premium, with Rhead going close with a header on 20 minutes.

City grew in confidence as the first-half progressed and looked much more threatening going forward. Passlack received the ball from McLean in the box on 24 minutes and forced a smart save from the Lincoln goalkeeper before Leitner and Pukki exchanged passes from a corner, only for Leitner to curl just over.

Klose headed wide from a Leitner corner moments later and Passlack again went close from inside the box before City took the lead four minutes before half-time with McLean coolly struck an unstoppable free-kick over the wall and into the net from just outside the box.

Daniel Farke made nine changes at the break, bringing on Jordan Rhodes and Ben Marshall for their first appearances in yellow and green. There was also a welcome return to action for Louis Thompson who came on for his first minutes in almost two years following successive ligament injuries.

City controlled in the second half and punished Lincoln a number of times on the break. Hernandez made it two for the Canaries just five minutes after the restart, latching onto a Leitner through ball and feeding the ball under Vickers and into the net.

Moments later, Rhodes fed the ball first-time into the path of Thompson who, on his return to action, finished excellently by rounding the keeper and finding the net from the acutest of angles.

City came under some pressure in the remaining second-half minutes but defending extremely well. Unfortunately, a late Sean Raggett own goal took slight gloss off the scoreline but it was nonetheless, a promising performance by Daniel Farke’s men.
