Bury look very good going forward. Overloading our midfield and looking dangerous down the wings. Looks like some of our players our running through mud. They do look open down the wings though!

And we go 2 1 up! Full time please!

Well I really want us to win. Still really close at the top and our home form is great this season so I'd say we have a good chance however with the game being on TV it tends to be a bit boring and close which this game could easily be.

Obviously a draw wouldnt be the worst result but we don't seem to draw many so I've got a feeling we'll win or lose.
Hmm...

Really couldn't say Bury deserved to lose so overall am very satisfied with a point. Thought we defended really well so am happy, won't be many teams that play Bury at GL and get something.

What a game that was!

Sky seemed disappointed that Bury didn't win it.

Bury are very good going forward, the only way to get anything from this game was to go for it, which we did, and defend well, which we did mostly.

Would have taken a point before the game but disappointing that we blew the lead each time.

Oh well, 8 points clear of 4th. That's excellent.

Disappointed with Lincoln’s goals but a great game. Great desire from us again. Would like to see Frecklingtons stamp again, as an aside.

Looked a good game between 2 good sides.

Can see why you’re both up there, good result for the top 3 I dare say.

Entertaining game, Lincoln yet again getting away with blue murder. I’m not sure if there’s a point it actually becomes a skill instead.

Both sides look like they’ll go up, I think that top 3 will be the final top 3.

Yeah draw was deserved I think, disappointed with the defending from all 3 goals. I think Stokes should have come off a lot sooner than he did. It was a great game and we showed great character to come back three times and nearly win it at the end.

Lincoln are very clinical and you can see why they are leading quite comfortably at the top. I wonder if we will get any more bodies in before the end of the month? Styles seems nailed on to return until the end of the season which I'd be happy with.

I suppose a high score draw was always on the cards given the two sides respective home/away and goal scoring records.

A decent return of 7 points from 9 this week and a good effort tonight given that it's our 6th away game in 8, having had Yeovil on Tuesday night and then playing on a pitch like that as well. Another away game next weekend, too!

Trouble outside the ground, our fans including families set upon by the Bury lot, nice send off!

Seemed really odd when most of the Bury "vocal" section left the ground with 5 minutes to go- clearly pre planned to get to the away end. Never seen families attacked before as they were leaving a football match so first time for everything- even in 2019.

LCFC appear to be launching an investigation as are Lincs police.

Shame because it put a complete dampener on a very very good advert for League 2

Shame about the trouble, I hid my colours and made a run for it! Really good game and chuffed with a point. Bury were good, attacking, good passing and good movement. Been a tough week and a nice rest before County away.

Yep- me too. Scarf away, hood up and head down. Trouble is it really kicked of just where the families were waiting to get back into their coaches (the families bore the brunt of it as they were the first out of the ground after the match finished where the Bury fans ambushed them).

Thought this kind of knuckle dragging had largely been eradicated but maybe I've been lucky home and away the last few years.

Sorry imps, no place in football for actions like that and after such a great game as well.
Fair play mate, nice to see a sensible reply, some of the comments from some of your 'fans ' on twitter were disgusting!
Our fans asked for it cos they were cocky, wtf!
So families asked to set upon by a bunch of thugs,
Apparently there was trouble at our place, never heard anything about that before.

Complacency to blame for the trouble.
I read an article by a police officer in the Buried Times local rag when a guy appeared in court and collected a life ban. He stated that the police and the club had worked hard and had eradicated the growing hooliganism problem. I remember thinking that was a silly thing to say and that could come back and bite him on the arse, never thinking I would be proved right so quickly sadly.
I don't recall any bother with our fans last season but I think that was due to the fact that we were chite more than anything else. Even the knuckle draggers didn't want to see us!
It's a shame we can't reserve a corner of Manchester Road park for match day and let the idiots slug it out away from the normal people.
Hope your supporters are all ok,and please don't tar us all with the same brush, most Bury fans are spot on.

Indeed, just a small group of around 100 nearest the away section who left early and then got into the away end gates unchallenged.
All clubs have their trouble element, I know we do having travelled to away games for 30 years.
Just a few few spoil it sadly.

Only saw the second half but that was a highly entertaining game. Thought on the evidence I witnessed Bury deserved to win. That Danny Mayor is one hell of a player.
