Volley from Nolan is straight down the throat of Veiga.
Sub. City 86 mins: Ethan Moore comes on for Danny Glover.
City 85 mins: George Williams for foul on Dixon.
Sub. City 83 mins: Reece Hales replaces Niall Thompson.
Thompson is down hurt and is getting a volley of verbals from a Lincoln supporter. For the record, the stewards are just watching on. Pathetic.

Sub. Lincoln 74 mins: Waide Fairhurst on for Ben Tomlinson.
Veiga taking a lot of abuse from the visiting fans while he receives treatment.
Glover clears a shot away from inside the six yard box. There were so many bodies in the area, I have no idea whose effort it was.
The visitors are beginning to crank up the pressure.
Corner from Newton is headed away by Aaron Williams.
Sub. Lincoln 67 mins: Conner Robinson comes on for Luke Foster.
Power drills a drive against the roof of the stand behind the goal.

Newton's corner is confidently claimed by Veiga.
City will have to defend well now and so far they have.

Sub. City 52 mins: Aaron Williams on for Richard Taundry.
Glover does superbly to sprint on to the end of Deeney's long ball forward but he is unable to pick out a team mate in the box.
From the corner, Brown heads wide.
Wright slips the ball through to Marlon Jackson and Veiga makes the save.
Attendance is 1,019.
Nti's cross is met by the head of Thompson and he glances the ball just wide.

Corner from Power is headed away at the near post by Richard Taundry.
A volley from Wright almost clears the stand behind the goal.
Thompson decides to have a go from distance and is way off target.
Lincoln 38 mins: Captain Alan Power for a late challenge on Thompson.
Good move from City sees Nelson-Addy get a cross in from the right and Glover turns the ball over. Appeal for a corner off the defender is ignored.
Players are losing their feet quite often. Ben Tomlinson is the latest to do so.
The early intensity has gone out of the game.
Lincoln 27 mins: Nolan. Possibly for a foul on Nelson-Addy but it could have been dissent. Difficult to tell from the press bench.
Sean Newton fires the ball across the six-yard box but there's nobody on the end of it.
Miller blazes an effort high and wide for the visitors.
Ellis Deeney finds Daniel Nti in the area and he tries to chip Paul Farman but the keeper just manages to get a hand to the ball.

The intention from City is clear: get at them early and let Niall Thompson stretch his legs down the right flank.
