Lincoln City 3-3 Aldershot Town

Matt Rhead
Matt Rhead has scored four goals in his last four games for Lincoln City

A last-minute Matt Rhead strike salvaged a 3-3 draw for Lincoln at home to Aldershot.

Bernard Mensah put the Shots ahead from close range, but Nathan Arnold dispatched past Jake Cole to draw the sides level.

Just nine minutes later Arnold made it 2-1, placing low into the corner.

Cheye Alexander turned the game again in the second half, curling in from 18 yards to make it 2-2.

Then, after good work by Jake Gallagher, the ball broke fortuitously to Scott Rendell to steer Aldershot back in front.

But Rhead controlled and equalised in the dying seconds, after a long ball was pumped forward by goalkeeper Paul Farman, as second-placed Lincoln's gap to leaders Forest Green was extended to nine points.
