Lincoln City 1-3 Fleetwood

Fleetwood Town came from behind to win at managerless Lincoln and go second in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

The late arrival of Fleetwood's coach delayed the kick-off and Lincoln capitalised when Josh O'Keefe's header looped over goalkeeper Scott Davies.

Ryan Jackson netted from close range to draw the Cod Army level.

Andy Mangan pounced on a loose ball in the box to fire them ahead and Jackson tapped in his second to seal it after Richard Brodie's shot was parried.

Brown rues Imps defensive lapses

Lincoln City caretaker manager Grant Brown told BBC Lincolnshire:

"The spirit's still there and the work rate was good, it's just unfortunate that we switched off at important times and were punished by a decent side.

"For 45 minutes we were good defensively but I was disappointed with the second half and the boys were disappointed.

"It was one of those things. On another night the ball will break to our players and we'll clear it, but tonight it's gone to their players and they've punished us for mentally switching off and losing concentration."
