Winn pleased with defensive display

Boro winger came off the bench in 2-1 win over Lincoln City

BORO winger Peter Winn was pleased with his side’s defensive display as they kept Lincoln City at bay in their 2-1 win on Saturday.

The Imps took the lead through an Ashley Grimes first half penalty before losing to a Lawrie Wilson brace, but they failed to test Chris Day any further in the game as Boro shut up shop to keep them out.

Despite suffering from a groin niggle Winn came off the bench in the game and said afterwards that his side deserved all three points.

“It was a good win, especially to come from behind,” Winn told The Comet.

“I think we did very well, the team responded well to when we went one goal down and got the early goal back and carried on from there with the good win.

“We did well to shut them out. They had some possession in front of us but they didn’t really get near our goal.
