Tom Pett picked the perfect time to score his first Lincoln goal as the Imps booked their place in the League Two play-offs with a 1-1 draw against Yeovil.
On a tension-filled afternoon at Sincil Bank, Pett struck from the edge of the box with 13 minutes left to cancel out Jordan Green's 10th-minute opener.
Yeovil were late getting to the ground after their bus broke down at their hotel but they made the perfect start as Green broke into the box and slid the ball beyond Ryan Allsop.

The Imps wasted a golden chance to equalise on the half-hour mark when Matt Green's penalty was saved by Artur Krysiak, with the striker then hitting the bar with the rebound.
The Glovers had chances to extend their lead before the break, with Francois Zoko shooting wide with just Allsop to beat.
The tension increased in the second half when news filtered through that Mansfield, who needed to win, had equalised against Crawley.
However, the nerves among the home fans were eased when substitute Pett produced his moment of magic.
The result ensured the Imps finished seventh in the table and will now play Exeter home and away in the semi-finals.
