Lincoln United were denied victory following a superb performance by the Belper keeper and the fact they could not convert the many chances they created into goals.

This was the Whites’ second successive goal-less draw but at least they had more opportunities on goal than in their 0-0 draw against Peterborough Sports on Wednesday evening.

Sam Wilkinson’s men hit the post after a clever chip from Jack Wightwick and a blistering 30 yard strike from Harry Millard after the break.

Belper had clear-cut chances to take the lead but good goal-keeping from Jake Turner and poor finishing from the visitors’ strike-force kept the scores level.

United produced wave after wave of attacks in the second half but couldn’t break down the staunch resistance of the Belper defence.

Man of the match Matt Cotton proved a constant danger but somehow the ball would not go in the opposition net.

The crowd enjoyed an entertaining game but the home support left feeling frustrated at the many missed chances.

The sides will battle it out once again on Tuesday at Belper striving to stay in the world’s oldest cup competition that is the FA Cup.
