Lincoln 1 Ebbsfleet 1 - full-time
A goal from Ebbsfleet substitute Liam Bellamy denied Lincoln City their second home win of the season as they were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Sincil Bank.
An early goal from Nicky Nicolau had given the Imps perfect start when he struck a low shot past Preston Edwards at his near post.
Lincoln had hoped to find a second goal, but Ebbsfleet slowly came back into the contest and Paul Farman was required to tip over a Neil Barrett header.
David Holdsworth's side then wasted a great chance when a poor back pass from Paul Lorraine let in Power, but instead of passing to an unmarked Jake Sheridan, he opted to shoot but it was blocked.

City should have taken the lead early in the second half when Jamie Taylor prodded straight at Edwards, while Colin Larkin also fired over.
But Bellamy levelled for the visitors when from a Lincoln corner, Lanre Azeez burst past two challenges and set-him up for a clinical finish.
Lincoln tried to summon a winner, but could not find one as they were forced to settle for a second successive draw
