League One highlights and round-up: Lincoln beat Ipswich to go top

Lincoln returned to the top of the Sky Bet League One table after a 1-0 win over fellow high-flyers Ipswich.

Jorge Grant saw his deflected shot come back off the post and Tomas Holy’s superb save denied Brennan Johnson as the Imps were the better side in the first half.

Johnson was fouled in the box 13 minutes from time by Aristote Nsiala and Grant stroked home the resulting penalty.

Town ended the match with 10 men after former Lincoln midfielder Jon Nolan was sent off following a challenge on Harry Anderson in added time.
