Lincoln continued their revival with a spirited performance to earn their third consecutive league win with a 2-1 success over Bradford.

City had a let-off early on when Luke O'Brien burst through the home defence but finished with a weak shot which was blocked by the legs of Lincoln keeper Rob Burch.

Bradford had another chance in the 24th minute when Omar Daley, back after injury, fired in a low cross but Gareth Evans put the ball wide from close in.

Bradford were made to pay on the half-hour when Lincoln went ahead with a well-worked goal. Delroy Facey flicked on for Brian Gilmour, whose neat ball in was slipped past the keeper by Chris Herd.

Seven minutes later Bradford's fragile defence cracked again with Facey putting Gilmour clear. The Scot held off three defenders before placing his shot into the net.

It was only after the introduction of sub Michael Boulding at half-time that the Bantam's posed any real threat and they pulled a goal back when Lincoln failed to clear a cross from Luke O'Brien and Boulding fired in.
