Freddie Draper headed the Imps ahead in the second half, but Harvey Knibbs drew the home team level.

Skubala said: “I think it was a fair result when you look at it over the 90 minutes.

“It’s a little bit disappointing when you go 1-0 up and want to see it out. We’ve been good recently with set-pieces too.

"The boys will be frustrated but we have to go again. We’ll talk about how to improve on it in future, but not dwell on it.

“All in all, it’s a fair point. There will be twists and turns to come, as I’ve been saying.

“We have high standards and want to win games, and we came here to win.

“They’re good at home, are a tough team to play against and have some good players. It’s a point on the road and we keep going.

“We started the game bright and fast with a couple of changes, and then it settled for them, and we were getting pulled around a little bit with the press.

“In the second half we tightened things up and started to look better and fresher. We keep fighting, we keep going and as I tell the lads if you can’t win it, don’t lose it.

“We had brilliant travelling support of 1,500 fans, who were amazing. The group’s pushing hard to try and reward them.”

Talking about his side’s goal, which was Draper’s first League One strikefor City and set up by Sean Roughan, he added: “It was a fantastic cross and I’m pleased for Freddie, who got his first goal and hopefully that will get him going.”
