Lincoln City 0-0 Tamworth

Tamworth earned a valuable and deserved point with a gritty away display against Lincoln City at Sincil Bank.

Neither side were able to create much in the way of clear chances during an uninspiring first half.

But the game opened up slightly after the interval, with Imps goalkeeper Paul Farman making a fine save to keep out a Ben Richards-Everton header.

Lincoln's best chance saw Luke Foster's shot scrambled off the line after an error by keeper Cameron Belford.

The hosts, who could have moved into the play-off places had they won and other results gone their way, pressed late on as the Lambs tired.

But neither side were able to break the deadlock and Tamworth, who stay 17th in the Conference Premier table, held on.
