Worst Team Performance – Bristol Rovers (H)
Taing all of the ratings and adding them up to get an overall average, the worst performance of the month came as we lost 2-1 at home to Bristol Rovers. Only one player, Conor McGrandles, scored more than 7 and he came off with 15 odd minutes left to play. Only seven of the players earned more than a six from you, one of those being Theo Archibald. It was a tough day at the office, just as it seemed to be against the Gas last season, but it was far from abject.
Best Team Performance – Crewe (A)
The first 60 minutes or so against Crewe was perhaps the best we have seen a Lincoln City side play in over a decade, and the only thing the performance did not have was goals galore. We did bag one though, through harry Anderson, but across the board, you were purring with delight at the 1-0 win. The average player rating for the squad was 7.79, with two players, in particular, standing out for you. One was Lewis Montsma, he earned an average rating of 8.4 for that encounter, his best performance of the month and a score high enough to earn him Man of the Match in any other game through the month.
Best Individual Performance – Harry Anderson, Crewe A
The stand out individual performance of the month came from Harry Anderson at Crewe. His average rating was 8.6 for the match, the best of any player across the whole month. That may be partly down to his goal, but his all-round work rate was excellent, and the development of his game is becoming more evident through the season. Harry is a firm fan favourite for his longevity as well as his goals, but as he approaches 200 appearances for the club, he is proving to be as good now as he has ever been. At just 23, he still has a lot of potential and that should be frightening for other clubs.
