Lincoln City must negotiate a tricky replay against Halifax Town if they are to keep their FA Cup hopes alive after they were held to a goal-less draw at Sincil Bank this afternoon.
A dire first half was almost ignited by Gareth Seddon's 25-yard strike in the 25th minute which cracked the top of the bar.
Liam Hogan then nearly gave Lincoln the lead when he headed against his own bar.
City attempted to up the ante after the break, but it was Halifax who created the better chances.
The best one fell to Jason St Juste who somehow blazed wide at the back post from Lee Gregory's cross.
Lincoln were then reduced to 10 men in the closing stages when David Morgan was sent off for a foul on Ryan Toulson.
The result means the teams must do it all again on Tuesday night at the Shay.
Lincoln: Farman, Bore, Boyce, Miller, Gilbert (Nutter 26), Mills, Gray, Smith, Nicolau (Morgan 62), Taylor, Robinson (Larkin 46)
Subs: Power, Hutchison, Fofana, Turner
