Lincoln City 0-0 Luton Town

Andre Gray

Lincoln City held leaders Luton to end the Hatters' run of seven consecutive wins in the Conference Premier.

Andre Gray went close for the visitors before the break when he miss-hit a shot with the goal in sight.

Conner Robinson then chipped over for the Imps after the break before Gray saw a close-range attempt saved by keeper Paul Farman.

With second-placed Cambridge not playing this weekend, Luton are now five points clear of the U's.

"We put some good performances in, worked extremely hard and created some chances as well. Both sides had a go and we were well worth a point.

"One goal was probably going to win it and as with all good teams, they got a few corners at the end and you think, 'this is where they get the points'. But we defended as a team magnificently and the new lads gave us extra impetus.

"We know we need wins but it's not for the want of trying. The only luck we've had this season is bad luck so if it turns a little, we might just go on a bit of a run which I'm hoping for."

"Fantastic work rate, absolutely first class. It got a bit difficult for everybody at the end, as the pitch became more and more difficult, but the spirit and enthusiasm just drives you through.

"I look at the festive period of five games, and to have taken 13 out of 15 points, is just fantastic.

"Now we can take a breath and decide what we want to do. I'll have a chat, probably tomorrow, with the club physio and see how we are with people coming back; the situation with Luke Gutteridge, and that will determine where we go.

"Unbelievable support [from the Luton fans]. When we need a little bit of help, they're giving us a little bit of help; they're part of our team."
