Brown On Target As Reserves Draw At Lincoln
James Brown played nearly 70 minutes as Hartlepool United Reserves held their Lincoln City counterparts to a draw at Sincil Bank.
Trialist Martin Vinther also started the game as Pools opened the scoring after just 3 minutes, James Brown tapped home following a corner which caused a goalmouth scramble.
At the other end Nathan Adams had a penalty shout turned down for the hosts before trialist James Reid brought the scores level with a thunderbolt from outside the area.
A defensive mix up nearly allowed Billy Greulich to give Pools the lead but his effort went narrowly wide just before the half time interval.
Lincoln had the better of the game in the second half but both Brown and second half substitute Michael Mackay were denied by experienced keeper Paul Musselwhite.
