Ten-man Swindon denied at the death by Lincoln

Michael Bostwick salvaged a point for Lincoln deep into stoppage time in a thrilling 2-2 draw with 10-man Swindon at Sincil Bank.
The visitors, who had come from behind themselves to lead at the break, were left heartbroken as the Imps finally broke through.
Despite all Swindon's early dominance it was Lincoln who went in front against the run of play in the 23rd minute.
A brilliant through ball from Harry Anderson gave Matt Green a clear run on goal, but he was brought down by Matt Preston who was duly given his marching orders by referee Antony Goggins.
Lee Frecklington smashed the resulting penalty straight down the middle and it was too powerful for goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook.
Lincoln failed to capitalise on the one-man advantage, though, and the visitors were soon deservedly level.
Keeper Paul Farman could only parry Ollie Banks' speculative 30-yard drive and Marc Richards reacted quickest to tap home the equaliser in the 35th minute.
Three minutes later the game had turned on its head as Banks capitalised on some slack defending to stab home from 20 yards.
Lincoln were to have the final say, however, as Bostwick pounced at the death.
