Woking 1-1 Lincoln City

New Lincoln boss Gary Simpson saw his side come from a goal down to earn a vital point at Woking.

The home side took an early lead when Brett Johnson headed home former Lincoln captain John Nutter's cross.

But the Imps, who have just one league win since November, levelled through Vadaine Oliver's close-range header following good work by Adam Smith.

The point leaves Lincoln two points above the Blue Square Bet Premier drop zone in 18th while Woking are 10th.

The Imps handed debuts to Tony Diagne and Nat Brown after they tied up loan moves from Simpson's old club Macclesfield hours before kick-off.

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"We got the ideal start, scoring in the first minute, and couldn't ask for a better start but all credit to them because they battled back.

A point won for Woking, says Hill

"No disrespect to the pitch but it's bobbling around out there today and we want to get the ball down and play.

"It became very direct which suited them.

"I look at it as a point won and I felt we did enough to win."
