Lincoln City seal FA Cup second round date with Mansfield after causing major upset at Walsall
Lincoln City caused a major upset in the FA Cup first round tonight after they sealed a dramatic 3-2 win in their replay at Walsall.
The Imps had taken the lead in the 50th minute when Alan Power latched on to Tom Miller's pass and buried his shot beyond David Grof.
Richard Taundry then equalised with nine minutes remaining to send the tie into extra time.
Despite tired legs and minds, substitute Vadaine Oliver put Lincoln back in front with a brilliant header from a corner.
And the powerful forward made it 3-1 in the dying stages when he prodded past Grof after a poor defensive header by James Chambers.
A consolation goal right at the end gave Walsall a slight glimmer of hope, but it was not enough to deny non-league Lincoln victory against the struggling League One outfit.
Lincoln will now play derby rivals Mansfield in the second round after they beat Slough on penalties.
The tie is scheduled to take place on Decemeber 1.
