Southport 3-3 Lincoln City

Gary Brabin
Brabin took over as manager on Monday

Southport hit back from 2-0 down to halt a run of three home defeats with a thrilling draw in the first game of Gary Brabin's second spell in charge.

Delano Sam-Yorke's shot crept in off the post to put Lincoln ahead and Ben Tomlinson fired home City's second.

Charlie Joyce pulled one back when the Imps failed to clear before Richard Brodie sliced a cross into his own net.

Brodie atoned for his error by heading in Jonny Lynch's cross and John Marsden earned the point with a 30-yarder.

Despite the draw, Southport slipped a place to 22nd in the table while Lincoln dropped to 16th.
