Town were unchanged from the side which won at Lincoln on Boxing Day.

Lincoln took the lead with a deflected goal after 11 minutes.

Town had a chance to equalise straight away, but the keeper smothered the ball and was injured in a clash with Colbeck. Farman, who had a nightmare at Sincil Bank, had to come on for the 'keeper.

Town equalised from a free kick was not cleared properly by Lincoln, and Miller's volley found the back of the net.

Taylor did well to get a cross in to the box, but Oliver side-footed it straight to McKeown.

Lincoln continued to dominate and came close to scoring when Pond cleared off the line with McKeown beaten, although there were strong appeals that it had crossed the line.

The first half ended with Town lucky to still be level at 1-1.

Lincoln continued to be the better side and should have scored from a break early in the second half, but the ball was cleared for a corner. Then McKeown made a great save to deny Taylor.

Following the replacement of Greg Pearson by Southwell, Town improved, and Southwell almost scored from a header at a free kick but the ball was cleared off the line.

After a mass brawl Aswad Thomas was sent off following reaction to a bad tackle.

Town were hanging on but could have won the game with a late chance by Southwell, then Lincoln had a player sent off in injury time.

Grimsby did well in the end to get a 1-1 draw and stay top of the league as a result.
