Notts County Meadow Lane, where they managed to seal a point against the league leaders

Notts County drew 1-1 this weekend against high flying Lincoln in a bid to get out of the League Two relegation zone.

It was a great point for County, the league’s bottom side, against table-toppers Lincoln City, but it wasn’t without a stroke of luck.

The home side went ahead in the second minute of the game through a penalty taken by Jon Stead, following a tackle from Harry Toffolo on the front man.

The game stayed that way until the fourth minute of stoppage time as Lincoln drew level as Bruno Andrade struck from 20 yards on the stroke of half time.

Lincoln pushed forward as the game went on but it was County who came closest as Stead clipped the bar in the second half.

There was late controversy as The Imps were awarded a penalty in the 86th minute but top scorer Jon Akinde fired wide from 12 yards.

A lucky escape for the home side, but when battling at the bottom of the table, this is exactly the kind of luck you need.

Both sides remain top and bottom of the league respectively, but the Magpies move closer towards safety from the National League.

County travel to Forest Green in their next fixture whilst Lincoln host Northampton in a huge game for the home side.
