Imps leave it late to see off Stanley: Match Review


Struggling Lincoln scored two late goals to snatch the points in a 2-1 win against Accrington.

City, without a win in six games, looked to be heading for defeat until striker Stevie Lennon broke through to score from six yards after 84 minutes.

Lennon then missed a good chance before the Imps snatched a lucky winner in stoppage time.

Veteran defender Ian Pearce fired in a low cross which deflected off Stanley defender Darran Kempson and rolled into the net.

Accrington, battling for a play-off place, had only themselves to blame for not claiming another away win.

They went ahead on the half-hour when Michael Symes sent Bobby Grant clear and the striker slotted home his 16th goal of the season.

Stanley almost scored again four minutes later when skipper Andrew Procter powered in a header which was pushed onto the crossbar by Lincoln keeper Rob Burch.

Accrington had a great chance midway through the second half when John Miles picked out Symes at the far post but the striker hammered his shot against the outside of the post.

Then Symes broke clear of the home defence but his shot was kept out by Burch.
