Donny Miss Chance To Go Top

Last updated : 25 January 2004 By Andy Beill
9,500 were at Belle Vue hoping to see Dave Penney's side win their 10th successive home game. However, visitors Lincoln City had other ideas, and stunned the crowd into silence when they took the lead in the 12th minute as Tim Ryan turned Francis Green's cross into his own net.

Gary Fletcher headed in a second for the Imps on 58, and they survived an onslaught from Rovers' Leo Fortune-West, Adriano Rigoglioso and Ricky Ravenhill who all had chances.

Doncaster remain 2nd in the table and have now played the same number of games as Hull City, who are a point ahead and go to Cheltenham tomorrow. 3rd place Oxford are not in action tomorrow as their planned opponents, Scunthorpe, are still involved in the FA Cup. Lincoln move up to 6th after the 2-0 win this evening.
