Exeter and Lincoln remain at the top of Sky Bet League Two despite conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 against Newport.
Exeter led at the break through Jayden Stockley's header and were destined to take top spot outright, but Newport's Mark Harris struck in the 82nd minute to rescue Newport a point.
