FA Cup: Mansfield see off Lincoln to set up Liverpool tie; Hereford not at the race against Cheltenham
Mansfield 2 – Lincoln 1 (FA Cup 2nd Round Replay, December 12, 2012) The Stags took the lead in the 14th minute when John Dempster’s effort hit the woodwork and rebounded back into the net off unfortunate Imps keeper Paul Farman. Adam Smith struck a superb equaliser for David Holdsworth’s visitors just before half-time. But Briscoe’s late strike wrapped up a 2-1 victory for Paul Cox’s side and earned them a mouthwatering meeting at home with Liverpool.
