MICHAEL APPLETON praised Lincoln’s fighting spirit as they hit back to draw. Goals from Ellis Simms and Sullay Kaikai had Blackpool in control, but Anthony Scully (below) and Brennan Johnson earned the Imps a point in their first match for more than two weeks due to a Covid-19 outbreak.
“They showed really good spirit. It’s been a tough couple of months and a tough couple of weeks for everybody,” said Appleton.
“I’m still a bit frustrated that we allowed them to go into a two-goal lead, but later on I’ll feel happy that we’ve shown that sprit and belief to never give up.”
Blackpool manager Neil Critchley said: “We had some chances to get a third goal.”
