Highlights of the Sky Bet League One match between Lincoln City and Swindon Town.

Lincoln dropped two valuable home points in their Sky Bet League One title bid after only drawing 2-2 with relegation-threatened Swindon.

It needed Morgan Rogers' superb second-half strike to rescue the Imps a point after goals from Jordan Garrick and Brett Pitman, either side of Jorge Grant's penalty, had given the Robins a half-time lead.

Swindon's first attack produced a goal after 80 seconds. Dominic Thompson burst down the left flank, just keeping the ball in to deliver a cross that Scott Twine left for Garrick to slam first time past Alex Palmer.

Lincoln were awarded a 26th-minute penalty after Swindon skipper Dion Conroy felled Brennan Johnson in the area. Up stepped Grant to fire home the spot-kick to restore parity.

Pitman dinked a shot over Palmer that bounced against the bar, but after Rogers brought a diving save out of Jojo Wollacott, Pitman restored Swindon's lead.

Cohen Bramall raced back to thwart a Robins attack, but after passing back to Palmer, the City stopper dithered on the ball allowing Pitman to nick it off his toe to squeeze home a shot that went in off the far post.

Pitman chanced his arm from fully 40 yards straight after the kick-off, with Palmer fumbling his shot behind.

Just before the hour mark, a piece of Rogers magic brought City level, the loanee racing into space before crashing home a low 25-yard shot that fizzed past Wollacott and into the net.

Palmer regained some kudos by diving to his left keep out Twine's free-kick as the visitors threatened to nick a winner.
