Lincoln City 0 Barnsley 1

Lincoln City 0 Barnsley 1

1041 away supporters made the trip to Sincil bank to watch Barnsley make their first appearance in the Reds new navy and gold away kit as they looked to progress to the second round of the Carling Cup.

Darren Moore failed to shake off the injury he had overcome on Saturday, opening the door for Luke Potter to make his first senior start in the centre of defence. Simon Davey also handed a debut to new signing Adam Hammill on the right wing at the expense of Martin Devaney.

Odejayi almost opened the scoring on 12 minutes as he flicked the ball over the defence and fired a shot at goal but his effort was blocked by Kovacs. He then headed the resulting corner over the bar.

It was chances galore for the Reds in the first half as Hammill, Potter, Odejayi and Anderson all had good efforts on goal but it was Lincoln who went closest through Howe who's super long range volley forced Luke Steele into a good save to send the ball out for a corner.

Lincoln's keeper Robert Burch was having the game of his life, stopping every shot and header that the Reds could muster.


Half Time: Lincoln City 0 Barnsley 0


Butterfield forced a save from Burch in the Lincoln City goal on 46 minutes with a 30 yard shot and won Barnsley yet another corner but Hammill couldn't find a Barnsley shirt.

Minutes later Jamal Campbell-Ryce fired just over the cross bar after a great jinking run through the Lincoln defence and a neat passing exchange with Jon Macken.

Bobby Hassell forced another corner with a good effort from the edge of the box but again the corner resulted in nothing.

Stephen Foster became the first man to enter the referee's book on 59 minutes for a challenge on Rene Howe.

The Barnsley fans were singing the name of Daniel Bogdanovic for much of the second half and on 67 minutes they got their wish, the Maltese international entering the field to replace Jon Macken.

Bogdanovic had a chance almost straight away after a poor save from Burch the ball fell to him but from a narrow angle he tried a chip when perhaps a low effort would have done.

He did make a much better effort though a minute later with his second chance, robbing the Hungarian defender Kovacs and finishing coolly to put the Reds 1-0 up on 72 minutes. Coventry City manager Chris Coleman was in attendance to watch Barnsley in advance of the clash at Oakwell on Saturday and will surely have been given food for thought by Simon Davey's tactical substitution which paid dividends again.

Chances followed for the Reds for the next 10 minutes through Hammill who forced a corner and Odejayi, who sent another header wide from 6 yards that he really should have scored but Lincoln withstood the pressure to keep the Barnsley fans on the edge of their seats with the score at 1-0.

Barnsley played out the final minutes and held on to progress to round 2 of the league cup, avoiding a potential embarrassing defeat.
