League One, League Two highlights and round-up: Lincoln held, Burton win

Jorge Grant missed a penalty as League One leaders Lincoln had to settle for a 1-1 draw against 10-man Peterborough.

The visitors dominated the early stages and it was no surprise when they took the lead on 10 minutes, albeit in slightly fortuitous fashion. Jonson Clarke-Harris’ shot was cleared off the line by Adam Jackson, hit the back of TJ Eyoma and bounced into the net.

The Imps levelled four minutes into the second half. It was another messy goal as a corner hit Mark Beevers and fell into the path of Anthony Scully, who swept home.

After a handball by Nathan Thompson, the defender was sent off for receiving his second yellow card. However, Grant let Posh off the hook by putting the spot-kick wide.

Debutant Hayden Carter scored the winner as Burton picked up their first victory under returning manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in a 1-0 defeat of Gillingham.


Carter scored the only goal after 33 minutes to seal victory for the bottom side in the third tier.

Rochdale staged a rousing second-half comeback to recover from three goals down at the break and draw 3-3 with Crewe.

Two goals from Oliver Finney and a strike from Owen Dale had Crewe in command at the break, but Adrian Morley and Matty Lund’s double earned a stunning point for the hosts.
