National League side Lincoln City pulled off another FA Cup shock as they knocked Championship leaders Brighton out in the fourth round with a 3-1 win at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln, who beat Ipswich after a replay in round three, had to come from behind after Richie Towell put Brighton ahead on 24 minutes.

The Imps, currently top of the National League, were handed a way back into the tie on 57 minutes. Glenn Murray grappled with Robinson, and Alan Power converted the spot-kick past substitute goalkeeper Casper Ankergren, who replaced the injured Niki Maenpaa.

An own-goal from Seagulls defender Fikayo Tomori, who is on loan from Chelsea, put the non-league side in front on 62 minutes.

Robinson added a third on the break to secure Lincoln's place in the FA Cup fifth round for only the second time since losing to Glasgow Rangers in 1886-87.

A robber who stabbed a man twice during a raid on a home in Lincoln has been jailed for nine years.

Dalton Lee Hudson, 25, of St Giles, Lincoln, threatened the occupants of the house on Arboretum Avenue in Lincoln in December 2014. He stabbed one man twice and attempted to steal a woman's bag.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Maria Horner said: "Having lived through a traumatic and shocking event, and then given evidence of it at trial, I'd like to thank the victims for their courage in seeing the justice process through to the end. Hudson has never apologised or shown remorse but I hope he uses his time in prison to reflect on the damage he's done and makes better choices in future."
