Lincoln and Crawley failed to put their recent goal-scoring woes behind them as the two sides played out a goalless draw at a blustery Sincil Bank.In a first half that offered very little, both sides struggled to get to grips with the conditions.The visitors did at least test Lincoln goalkeeper Josh Vickers, but he got down well to thwart Panutche Camara on two occasions.

The Imps’ Matt Rhead was convinced he should have won a penalty after being floored by Joe McNerney and Mark Connelly, but referee Darren Handley waved play on, much to the home team’s dismay.Rhead’s team-mate Alex Woodyard, meanwhile, was perhaps then fortunate to stay on the field when he caught Jimmy Smith with a reckless challenge moments later.There was cause for optimism two minutes after the break when a Rhead header rattled the Crawley crossbar, however it proved to be the closest either side would come.A series of uncharacteristic Sean Raggett errors midway through the half could have gifted the visitors the points, but Vickers was twice alert enough to deny Camara, while the striker also blasted wide from an acute angle.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsLincoln City21Vickers23Eardley15Dickie25Raggett3Habergham14Maguire-DrewSubstituted forKnottat 71’minutes16Bostwick30WoodyardBooked at 41mins28ArnoldSubstituted forPalmerat 65’minutes9RheadBooked at 67minsSubstituted forWhitehouseat 88’minutes10GreenSubstitutes1Farman2Long4Whitehouse5Waterfall7Ginnelly8Palmer11KnottCrawley1Morris22Lelan6Connolly5McNerney19Evina21BulmanSubstituted forRandallat 75’minutesBooked at 84mins15YorwerthBooked at 51mins7Boldewijn8Smith11Roberts28CamaraSubstitutes3Doherty4Payne12Mersin17Djaló18B Clifford24Lewis25RandallReferee:Darren HandleyAttendance:8,038Match StatsHome TeamLincoln CityAway TeamCrawleyPossessionHome58%Away42%ShotsHome9Away8Shots on TargetHome2Away3CornersHome5Away3FoulsHome16Away16Live TextPosted at Match ends, Lincoln City 0, Crawley Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+7′ Second Half ends, Lincoln City 0, Crawley Town 0.Posted at 90’+1′ Foul by Elliot Whitehouse (Lincoln City).Posted at 90’+1′ Cedric Evina (Crawley Town) wins a free kick on the right wing.Posted at 88′ Billy Knott (Lincoln City) wins a free kick on the right wing.Posted at 88′ Foul by Enzio Boldewijn (Crawley Town).SubstitutionPosted at 88′ Substitution, Lincoln City.
