Lincoln City held to goalless draw at Sincil Bank

Over 9,300 fans packed into Sincil Bank to witness Lincoln City being held to a goalless draw by Luton Town.

The Hatters were the league’s top scorers at the start of the day. having previously scored 13 goals in four games, but were unable to beat a resilient Imps defence.

The visitors came closest in the first half when Dan Potts’ cross found Danny Hylton, but Luton’s top scorer from last season saw his shot go over the bar.

Luke Berry also went close for Luton when his header was saved by Paul Farman.

Lincoln’s Billy Knott had a 25-yard shot which went inches wide in the first half before Nathan Arnold’s cut-back was well saved by Luton’s goalkeeper Marek Stech.

Luton almost opened the scoring mid-way through the second half when Sean Raggett’s pass across goal was intercepted by Hylton who charged through on goal, however the Imps were quick to track back and stop the danger.

Luke Waterfall also saw his header tipped over the bar by impressive goalkeeper Stech.

Alex Woodyard put in an excellent shift for Lincoln City, winning many tackles and showed plenty of energy throughout.

A goalless draw was fair for both sides as Lincoln will travel to Stevenage next week and sit 14th in the league.
