Barnet 1 Lincoln City 1: Match report
Jon Nolan smashed home a last-minute equaliser to give Lincoln City a deserved point against Barnet.
The Bees looked to have sealed the win with a moment of brilliance from Keanu Marsh-Brown seeing him dance his way into the City box and round Andrew Boyce and Paul Farman before netting from close range on 56 minutes.
However, City never let their heads drop and continued to knock on the door of the Barnet defence.
It finally crumbled when a Sean Newton free kick into the box caused confusion. Substitute Bohan Dixon stuck, but his effort was blocked. However, Nolan poached to score the equaliser in the final minute.

Lincoln City made several changes from the side that fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Salisbury in their last match.
Luke Foster, Dan Gray and Danny Rowe were all dropped to the substitutes bench, with Jake Sheridan, Todd Jordan and Alan Power in the starting line-up.
Captain Power had been absent for the last three matches as he served out his suspension following a straight red card at Cambridge United, where the Imps lost 1-0.
Barnet headed in to the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Halifax Town AFC.
Lincoln City made an inroad as early as the first minute when Jake Sheridan stole the ball off the foot of the defence and almost steered an effort on target.
Barnet did not make an effort until 20 minutes when Marc Byrne tried a long range effort that went over Paul Farman's bar and over the terrace.
The Bees did look deadly on the counter and on 30 minutes they sliced the City defence wide open. Keanu Marsh-Brown raced down right flank, but he went for goal and shot wide under pressure from Tom Miller.
Hyde then had Barnet's next best effort, but he was still restricted from the edge of the area and shot wide of Farman.
Lincoln had their best chance in the final moments of the first half. Mo Fofana did brilliantly to pass the ball to Tomlinson on the right-hand side. His low cross fell to Power, who tried an overhead effort that just went over the crossbar.
Ten minutes into the second half the match turned on it's head. Ben Tomlinson went over in the box and the referee waved away the penalty appeals. Barnet responded straight away and Keanu Marsh-Brown produced a superb mazy run on the right-hand side that saw him get round Andrew Boyce and Paul Farman before slotting in from close range.
Lincoln went for an attacking change on 69 minutes, with Todd Jordan being replaced by Nick Wright. The forward was making his return to action following a hamstring injury which he picked up against Macclesfield.
In a final throw of the dice, Danny Rowe and Bohan Dixon came on.
Rowe was straight away involved with a header over the bar.
Lincoln continued to press and finally got the point the deserved in the depths of injury time.
City are back in action on Tuesday night when they host Southport at Sincil Bank in the Skrill Premier.
