Danny Rowe’s solo effort gave the Imps an early advantage, but Jay O’Shea drew the hosts level on 15 minutes before Cian Bolger’s shot went in off Chris Stokes to give Lincoln the lead again.

Nicky Adams brought Lowe’s men back level before the break, but John Akinde’s penalty put the Imps ahead for a third time before Will Aimson's late header ensured the spoils were shared.

The draw means Bury remain third in League Two six points behind Lincoln at the top, and despite admitting some frustration at his side’s defending, Lowe was satisfied with the result.
