Lincoln City prepare for second attempt at reaching a Wembley final following FA Cup exit

Lincoln City are due to get their second chance at reaching a Wembley final when they play York City tonight.

The Imps will take to the field for the game in what will be their first appearance since their FA Cup quarter final defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

Danny Cowley's men will take on York at Bootham Crescent in the FA Trophy semi final first leg later.

The manager actually visited Wembley after the Arsenal game and hopes it will inspire his team to overcome the Minstermen.

Triumphs, tragedy and a new tot

Lincoln's FA Cup hero reveals how the death of his mother and the birth of a daughter have spurred him on to success.

Mansfield born Nathan Arnold, 29, who scored the winning goal in Lincoln's third round replay win over Ipswich, is looking forward to walking out in front of 60,000 fans at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Saturday as Lincoln City become the first non-league team to play in an FA Cup quarter final for 103 years.

As the dad of two strides onto the pitch, his thoughts will turn to his beloved football-mad mum Paula, who died aged just 50 in September 2015.

But there to cheer him on will be partner Jennifer Green, mother to 12-week-old Alba, whose short life has coincided with Lincoln's remarkable run in the world's oldest cup competition.

Lincoln City have drawn York City as their opponents in the FA Trophy semi-finals.

Earlier this month, the Imps also made it through to the FA Cup quarter final, the first time a non-league club had progressed to the last eight since 1914. They'll face Arsenal next month.

Lincoln City to face Sutton Utd or Arsenal in FA Cup

Lincoln City will face Sutton Utd or Arsenal in the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

Hundreds gathered to watch the draw live, and when fans saw that the game would be away - possibly at Premier League giants Arsenal, there was a huge cheer.

Lincoln are the first team in over 100 years to reach the FA Cup quarter final, but their historic achievement could be equalled if Sutton Utd beat Arsenal.

Full FA Cup quarter final draw:

  • Chelsea v Manchester Utd
  • Middlesbrough v Huddersfield Town or Manchester City
  • Tottenham Hotspur v Millwall
  • Sutton Utd or Arsenal v Lincoln City

The ties will be played between 10 and 13 March.

Sean Raggett headed in a corner for the Imps in the 89th minute, with the ball only just crossing the line.

It means Lincoln are the first non-league side into the quarter finals of the FA Cup since 1914, and they are just one game away from a Wembley semi-final.

The away side made a bright start to the game, and held their own against the tip-tier opposition.

Indeed, Jack Muldoon could, or maybe should, have put Lincoln ahead, but he could only fire over when well placed.

Andre Gray had perhaps Burnley's best chance to open the scoring when he got free in the box, but he shot was too close to Paul Farman in the Lincoln goal.
