Video: Stafford Rangers 1 Lincoln United 1

Stafford Rangers manager Neil Kitching will use the Lincoln United players' post-match celebration as motivation for tomorrow night's FA Trophy replay.moreThe two Evo-Stik Division One South teams face each other again in Lincolnshire tomorrow after a dour draw.

Kitching said: "They think that they have this tie won. They were celebrating after the game in their changing room as if it's all over as far as they are concerned.

"I just held our door open and told the players to listen to it. They shouldn't need many more words from me.""

Rangers raced into a sixth-minute lead, when striker Ben Haseley headed home Josh Craddock's floated cross to the far post.

But, after Nathan Rooney had a 25-yard free-kick go just wide for Rangers, they were pegged back on 23 minutes.

Lincoln striker Andrew Smith fired home past Boro goalkeeper Adam Whitehouse seconds after hitting the post.

Peter Till and Levi Reid went close in the second half, the former's 30-yard lob just clearing the bar, but it's all to play for once more.
