Lincoln City 1-1 AFC Telford

Chris Blackburn's own goal denied Telford a second win away from home this season, as they drew with relegation rivals Lincoln.

Former Imps man Kyle Parry tapped in Ryan Valentine's testing cross to give the visitors the lead.

But Blackburn sent the ball into his own net eight minutes later when trying to nullify John Nutter's cross.

Lincoln had chances to win when Peter Bore shot straight at Ryan Young and Jefferson Louis hit the side netting.


Lincoln City manager David Holdsworth tells BBC Lincolnshire:

"It was a positive performance, certainly some excellent football, some lovely two-touch stuff.

"The only criticism I've got is we should probably have hit the target more.

"I'm trying not to be too critical of the referee but I though the handball was a blatant one."

AFC Telford United boss Andy Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"I'm very pleased with a point particularly the way the game went, it drifted away from us a little bit.

"We've stuck another point on the board and we've built on last week's win against Braintree. We've got to be better in certain areas but on the whole I'm very happy.

"There was something pinned up in the dressing room when we got there, something from Lincoln, which was aimed at Kyle Perry.

"But I'm delighted they put that up. For someone to do that shows they were worried about him and he scored a great goal."
