Jerome Opoku glitters in Plymouth’s away defeat to Lincoln City


The defender of Ghanaian descent lasted the entire duration when the Pilgrims suffered their first defeat in three games

English-born defender with Ghanaian descent Jerome Opoku who is on loan from Fulham played full throttle in Plymouth Argyle’s 2-0 away defeat Lincoln City FC in English League One on Tuesday.

Coming into the game after a home win over Northampton last weekend, Plymouth were in search of another victory to extend their run to three games in a row but they were undone by their hosts.

After an incredible first half performance from Opoku and his fellow centre-back to keep the hosts’ strikers at bay, Plymouth were unlucky to concede the opener in a bizarre manner on 50th minute.

The hosts struck the post and forward Johnson took a tumble on the rebound but referee Chris Pollard pointed to the spot insisting that he was fouled. Jorge Jones stepped up and slotted the ball in before Brennan Johnson added the second goal on 72nd minute.

Plymouth came close to score a late consolation by the 89th minute after Reeves and Danny combined brilliantly to send Jephers in behind, however, the young striker lashed his effort horribly wide.

Opoku has now made three league appearances for Plymouth after seven games this season and lasted 151 minutes. He is expected to maintain his place when they host Wigan Athletic on Saturday
