Promotion hopeful’s Lincoln City, visited East Lancashire this afternoon, but they had to settle for a point against John Coleman’s Accrington Stanley.

The game started in tragic style for Accrington Stanley, as debutant goalkeeper David Martin had to be taken off after damaging ligaments in his ankle. Martin had signed on-loan from Liverpool in midweek and is now expected to miss the rest of the season, meaning his loan-spell with us, completely useless. So on came the second on-loan ‘keeper, Kazimierczak, who is on-loan from Bolton Wanderers.

Lee Frecklington’s corner found Lee Beevers and the defender nodded the ball in to mark his return from suspension after only 15 minutes.

But Stanley showed they have Bouncebackability, as they twice came from against a Lincoln side that went in to the game sitting 3rd in Coca-Cola League Two. The first comeback from Stanley was a magnificent solo effort from Stanley midfielder Andy Todd. Todd signed on a free transfer from Burton Albion in the summer.

Scott Kerr lobbed Kazimierczak, in the 56th minute to restore the Imps` advantage, but this was again cancelled out, this time by veteran striker Paul Mullin who scored the final goal of the game in the 73rd minute. The goal was Mullin’s 12th of the season.

So Stanley really do have ‘BOUNCEBACKABILITY’! A vital point for Stanley, who are nervously looking over their shoulders at the bottom 2, as we are just 3points out of danger.
