Lincoln City 1-1 Grimsby Town

Grimsby overcame Josh Gowling's red card to secure a point at Lincoln City.

Gowling was given his marching orders after jostling with Matt Rhead off the ball, Rhead scoring the resulting penalty to give Lincoln the lead.

But Grimsby produced a battling display and were rewarded when Omar Bogle equalised with an acrobatic overhead kick.

Grimsby are 10th in the National League table with nine points, the same number as Lincoln, who are 11th.

"I have to give a bit of credit to Grimsby, they worked relentlessly and tirelessly in midfield which we should never have allowed to happen.

"Having said that, we could have nicked it at the end but were a bit flat to be honest. We weren't good enough going forward and didn't win enough second balls, but we're a work in progress still.

"We wanted another goal to kill the game off, but we got a point. We're disappointed, but we've not been beaten."

Grimsby Town manager Paul Hurst talking told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I thought the lads were absolutely outstanding. It might not be a victory but I think it's certainly a moral victory.

"Only one team were looking to win the game and to play in the manner that I think is the best way, albeit we've all got different approaches.

"I couldn't be prouder that they got their rewards because there's no doubt that we certainly deserved something."
