AFC Telford   1 - 3   Lincoln City

Jamie Clarke played a starring role as Chris Sutton's Lincoln earned an FA Cup first round victory over Blue Square North outfit AFC Telford United.

The winger set up the opening goal, finding Sergio Torres and the striker finished well, before Liam Blakeman levelled with a fine looping header.

The Imps regained the lead through Clarke's crisp drive from 18 yards out.

And, after Carl Rodgers had volleyed against the bar at the other end, Aaron Brown wrapped it up on the break.


AFC Telford United boss Rob Smith told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We gave it a right good go in the second half and I think we deserved more out of the game.

"I thought that, if we'd gone ahead, we'd have won it. For 20 minutes, we had them on the rack, and there was only one winner.

"Then they broke away and scored, and broke our hearts. But we kept going until the end."

Lincoln City manager Chris Sutton told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"I'd watched Telford at Solihull and knew it was going to be difficult, especially away from home - and they didn't disappoint us in that respect.

"I don't think we were lucky. We were comfortable in the first half at 1-0. They scored a decent goal to get themselves back in the game and had a bit of pressure.

"But we withstood that and, on the balance of play, I think we deserved it."
