Lincoln City   0 - 0   Accrington Stanley

Lincoln 0-0 Accrington

Lincoln 0-0 Accrington

League Two mid-table sides Lincoln City and Accrington Stanley played out a hard-fought draw.

Both teams had chances, with Stanley's Alex Cisak denying Ashley Grimes, Mustapha Carayol, Gavin McCallum, Danny Hone and Ben Hutchinson,

Terry Gornell, Jimmy Ryan, Charlie Barnett, Sean McConville and Ian Craney all had chances for the visitors.

But McConville went closest to getting the winner with a long-range shot that flew inches wide of the post.


Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire:
"You're going to get games like that, but the one thing we've done today was compete all over the park which probably got us a point.

"It wasn't a fantastic game, there were not too many chances at either end but it's a decent point for us. Eight more points should see us OK.

"It's important that we keep competing and showing the desire that we did today."
