Scully now for LincolnSCORES He almost came out of Burge’s trunk but was just too powerful 1-1

McGrandles now SCORES! Burge guesses well but can’t get enough to keep him from entering 2-2

McGeady has seen another Palmer-owned effort and the Black Cats are putting a lot of pressure on

Sunderland is on top now and asking all the questions as we enter the final ten minutes

McGeady just cut off to the right and saw a raspy long-range effort parried – as the Black Cats advance

It’s the McGeady-Wyke combination again as the winger whips into a superb left flank ball which is encountered by the imposing striker

Diamond picks up the ball on the right and swings a cross that Wyke meets with a head dipping into the grass

It bounces and Palmer has to make a superb fingertip save to send it

Moments later, Wyke is upset again – this time as he looked sideways at a Maguire cross at the near post

Better from Sunderland, who enjoys a period of sustained possession in and around the Lincoln Lodge

Bramall – who has been a real threat since his introduction – played a key role rolling left and slicing the ball for McGrandles

The midfielder was unmarked on the penalty shot and put his foot aside towards the goal, Burge settling into place to parry the shot

But there was little the Sunderland Stopper could do to stop the rebound – as Scully leaped and fired at home, sparking wild celebrations from the Lincoln contingent

Lincoln Bramall’s Sub goes straight into the action, picks up the ball to the left and leaps forward
