Lincoln goal hero Sean Raggett hails 'crazy' FA Cup upset at Burnley

Sean Raggett could barely believe Lincoln's "crazy" achievement after his 89th-minute goal secured a 1-0 upset at Premier League club Burnley and a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Raggett nodded in at the far post late on as Danny Cowley's Imps, from the Vanarama National League, became the first team from outside the Football League to reach the last eight since QPR in 1914.

The 23-year-old told BT Sport 2: "I'm lost for words, it's mad, I can't believe it.

"The fans were amazing, all through the game.

"They're a top quality side, drew with Chelsea last week, it's amazing.

"Belief? Massively, we didn't come to draw, we came to win the game.

"Crazy, a non-league side in the quarter-finals in modern football, it's unheard of."
