Gillingham 1-0 Lincoln: Mikael Mandron puts Imps to the sword
Last Updated: 16/11/19 5:44pm
Mikael Mandron's first-half goal was enough for Gillingham to see off an out-of-form Lincoln 1-0 at Priestfield.
French striker Mandron volleyed home from six yards with the game's first chance after the Imps defence failed to clear Mark Byrne's cross.
Midfielder Olly Lee almost doubled the hosts' advantage on the half-hour mark but fired high and wide from 18 yards after a surging run from captain Max Ehmer.
Mandron wasted a great opportunity to score his second of the game after 65 minutes when he headed over from Byrne's cross.
He came even closer to sealing the win for Steve Evans' side seven minutes later but his glancing header from Lee's delivery rebounded off the crossbar.
The visitors, who have now lost five of their last eight league games, failed to register a shot on goal until stoppage time when Tyler Walker's stoppage-time header forced Gills goalkeeper Jack Bonham into a crucial late save.
