York 1-1 Lincoln City: FT Report

Fifth par amended

Crisis-club York rescued a valuable point in their promotion quest thanks to a stunning late equaliser from substitute Richard Cooper in a 1-1 draw against Lincoln.

York, who went into administration this week and are relying on handouts from the PFA to pay their players, looked to be heading to defeat until Cooper cracked home a fierce 20-yard volley eight minutes from time to claim his first goal since returning from a broken leg.

Lincoln had gone eight League and Cup games without a win but went in front after just eight minutes as Steve Watts ended his goal drought.

The on-loan Leyton Orient striker had failed to find the net in the League since Boxing Day last year but lashed a low 20-yarder past Alan Fettis.

Lincoln could then have doubled their lead but Richard Butcher missed a golden chance before the break and Dene Cropper was denied by Fettis shortly after.

York then fought back late on with Peter Duffield hitting a post and the pressure finally told as Terry Dolan`s men extended their unbeaten League run to seven games and climbed a place to fifth in the table.
