Louis Briscoe scored a 77th-minute winner as Mansfield booked a lucrative FA Cup third-round home clash with Liverpool after seeing off Blue Square Premier rivals Lincoln at the One Call Stadium.

The Stags took the lead in the 14th minute when John Dempster's effort hit the woodwork and rebounded back into the net off unfortunate Lincoln keeper Paul Farman.

Adam Smith struck a superb equaliser for the visitors shortly before half-time, but Briscoe's late winner wrapped up a 2-1 win for the hosts and earned them a mouthwatering third-round clash.
