FC Halifax Town 2-2 Lincoln City

Halifax's resurgence in the National League continued with a last-gasp draw against promotion-chasing Lincoln.

The West Yorkshire side were bottom of the table in November, but have not lost any of their past seven games.

Craig Stanley gave the Imps the lead with a 20-yard effort before Shaun Tuton equalised with a deflected shot.

Lincoln retook the lead through Liam Hearn but Kingsley James denied the visitors victory with an 89th-minute strike.
