Double ban blow for Lincoln
Left-back Brown was shown a straight red card by referee Graham Salisbury in the 69th minute after his challenge on Theo Lewis. As Brown headed towards the dressing rooms, tempers flared between the two dugouts with Imps assistant boss Pearce, who was named as one of the seven substitutes, also dismissed along with Town substitute Barry Richardson. The suspensions mean Brown and Pearce will both be unable to play in League Two matches against Grimsby and Rotherham plus the FA Cup second-round tie at Northwich.
