Lincoln City v ECFC
- Saturday 25th January, 1968
- Lincoln City (away),
- Lost 3-2
Exeter scored first through Johnny Kirk ham, but Dave Smith equalised and for a long spell City were forced on the defen sive.
In the second half we failed to keep chasing hard enough and although Lincoln were slightly lucky to score with a penalty by George Peden and when Campbell Crawford deflected another shot into his own net they earned their points. Dave Pleat got City's second goal in the last minute.
Team-Shearing; Smyth, Blain (Craw ford); Balson, Sharples, Newman; Pleat, Kirkham, Curtis, Mitten, Whatling.
