Danny Cowley insists League One leaders Lincoln could do better, despite their 4-0 hammering of Southend United writes JIM TATUM.

After maintaining their 100 per cent start to the season, the Imps boss was critical of his team.

He said: “We were pleased to go in at half time 2-0 up, but we weren’t overly happy with the performance.

“We couldn’t quite get the control we wanted in our possession, although we did have periods and passages of good play.

“We weren’t consistent enough though. You need rhythm if you want to gain control and dominate, which is what we are trying to do.”

First half goals from Jason Shackell and Harry Toffolo gave Lincoln a two-goal lead at half time, with second half goals from Tyler Walker and Bruno Andrade sealing a comprehensive win.

Sunderland manager Jack Ross says he is pleased with the start his team have made, following their first win of the season against promotion rivals Portsmouth.

The Black Cats drew their opening two games, before recording a 2-1 victory over Portsmouth on Saturday, but Ross feels they have made a good start to their chase for promotion.

He said: “When I reflect on the start to the season, it has been solid.

“We knew that, on paper, it was a tough and the vultures probably thought it would be a tough start, and it has proven to be the case.

“But we have come out of it reasonably well.”

Sunderland conceded first for the third week running, after Marcus Harness capitalised on a loose pass to give Pompey the lead.

Goals from Jordan Willis and former Oxford United man Chris Maguire helped Sunderland turn it around before half-time and they held firm in the second half to secure three points.

There was even more misery for Bolton, who were thumped 5-0 at Tranmere Rovers.

Wanderers, who are forced to field a side of mainly academy players, are yet to score this season.

A last-minute winner from David Wheeler gave Wycombe a stunning 3-2 win, as they fought back twice at home to MK Dons.

Incredibly, there was also a 90th-minute winner in another five-goal thriller, in the shape of an own-goal from Fleetwood Town’s Wes Burns, as they lost 3-2 at Doncaster.

Town were one of three teams to make a perfect start to the season before Saturday’s defeat at Keepmoat Stadium.

Elsewhere, Ipswich Town had to settle for a point at Peterborough, though they needed a 94th minute equaliser from Luke Chambers to get it.

Posh had fought back from one down to lead 2-1, before Chambers’ last-gasp header ensured that the spoils were shared.
