Lincoln City 1-1 FC Halifax Town

Lois Maynard scored a dramatic last-minute equaliser as FC Halifax Town extended their unbeaten run away at 10-man Lincoln City.

The hosts took the lead early on when Hamza Bencherif leapt to head home Tom Miller's cross from close range.

Lincoln could have doubled their lead soon after but keeper Matt Glennon tipped over Jordan Burrow's header.

The visitors sealed a point late on when Maynard hit a deflected shot home meaning they are now 10 games unbeaten.

Lincoln City coach David Preece told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"We defended really resolutely. The chances they had today, they probably deserved a point but it was disappointing how their goal came about.

"There have been games in which which we've been beaten where we didn't stand up to the physical aspect of those matches, but we did that today.

"It was a bit of a bombardment at times, they're a big physical team and they're not shy about getting the ball in the box - they're very direct and up until the 90th minute we'd stood up to that really well."
