ALFRETON Town and Lincoln City will both go into the hat for Sunday's televised FA Cup First Round Proper draw which is on ITV1 from 1pm onwards.
Nicky Law's side shook off the effects of having a staggering ten players unavailable for this cup tie and put in a very good disciplined shift against a Lincoln side who were reduced to ten men on 38 minutes.
Lincoln, under the managership of David Holdsworth for the first time, went ahead after just ten minutes when Sam Smith was unmarked to head home a Nick Nicolau cross from the left.
Nicky Law's side battled back well and drew level on 38 minutes when Imps goalkeeper Joe Anyon was sent off after inexplicably striking Chris Senior in the penalty area and Nathan Jarman coolly steered home the equaliser into the bottom right corner.
The Reds had the lion's share of possession in the second half but could not conjure a winner which means the sides have to do it all over again on Tuesday evening.
The replay is on Tuesday evening at Lincoln's Sincil Bank Stadium. Kick-off is 7.45pm and ATFC Supporters' Association transport departs at 5.30pm. Seats can be booked by contacting Mark Thorpe on 01773 836251.
