Peterborough United kept up their promotion assault in League One with a 2-0 victory this afternoon against Lincoln City.

After an evenly-fought first half, Posh upped the ante in the second period. A rasping drive by Louis Reed gave them the lead before Ivan Toney’s slick finish made it 2-0.

Reed was sent off in the dying stages but the home side hung on for all three points. Lincoln, who beat Sunderland last weekend, were matching their hosts in the first half, but some fans felt the game turned on an incident immediately after the restart.

Michael O’Connor had been the Imps’ best performer in the first half, but after a seemingly innocuous collision with Toney immediately after the restart, he was taken off. It appeared to be a head or neck injury and losing him upset the rhythm of the game.

With the benefit of hindsight, a few Lincoln fans are not happy with the challenge. Toney appears to jump into O’Connor after the ball has gone, leading with an elbow into the back of the midfielder’s neck.

Was it a foul, or is it an innocent collision which changed the game? You decide.

These Lincoln fans certainly have their opinions on the incident, which you can read below.
