Northampton's five-match winning run came to an end with a 1-1 draw against Lincoln.

On-loan Fulham midfielder Matt Saunders gave Lincoln a 54th-minute lead with a powerful free-kick from an acute angle.

Northampton improved after Saunders' strike and would have levelled had a goalbound drive from Ryan Gilligan not been blocked by Lincoln defender Moses Swaibu.

They got a deserved equaliser when right-back John Johnson got forward to volley home after 84 minutes.

But Northampton keeper Jason Steele still had to make a fingertip save in injury time to deny Lincoln winger Chris Herd a winner.
