Ebbsfleet Utd 1-1 Lincoln City

Conner Robinson's last-gasp equaliser rescued a point for Lincoln at strugglers Ebbsfleet United.

Tom Phipp put the Fleet in front when his long-range pile-driver found the top corner of Paul Farman's goal.

Farman kept the Imps in the game saving from Lanre Azeez and Ashley Carew before Robinson's late strike from the edge of the area got Lincoln a point.

Ebbsfleet are now without a win in seven while Lincoln are still searching for their first victory in four.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ebbsfleet United manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

Missed chances hurt Fleet - Daish

"We lost a couple of points in the last minute, and that's disappointing.

"If you don't take those chances, something can come back and bite you on the backside.

"When chances come you've go to take them - Liam and Nathan had two clear chances and they haven't made contact - that can be the difference.

"We're hanging in there, we're really making a fight of it, we're part-time so we don't have the hours to go over everything every day in training."

Lincoln City manager David Holdsworth told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

Bold approach paid off - Holdsworth

"We had to be bold. It was a close game but my bench today was littered with strikers and I thought, 'why not' so we ended with four strikers on the pitch.

"I wanted to go for it and try to get back in the game and I don't think anyone can deny we deserved at least a point today.

"In the second half we had five good chances and we thought we should have been level earlier, but to get it late on showed perseverance and it's a credit to the players.

"We knew it would be an open game. Sometimes the best form of defence is attack and that's what we chose to do and I think we were well worthy of a point at least."
