Another amazing fight-back. With six matches of the League season left Lincoln City looked certs for relegation - they were bottom of the table, five points adrift of the club above them (with only 2 points for a win) and had only won five league matches all season. In fact they had lost their last nine matches and it it was 18 league matches since they last won but remarkably they won their last six matches of the season to escape the drop by a single point.
