The Dragons, who face next season in the Blue Square Premier, edged in front after 11 minutes when a free kick from Wes Baynes was headed in by Levi Mackin.

Wrexham kept up the pressure and after Lincoln's Gary Croft handled on the edge of the box, Baynes blasted home a free kick in the 33rd minute.

Lincoln pulled a goal back two minutes before the break when Lee Beevers thumped a 40-yard clearance deep into the Wrexham half, but keeper Gavin Ward and centre-back Steve Evans managed to make a complete hash of clearing, with Evans heading the ball into his own net.

But in a dramatic finale Baynes smashed home an 87th minute free kick, sparking a pitch invasion from the visiting fans.

In stoppage time Wright fired in his 15th goal of the season for Lincoln and the Imps almost levelled, before Chris Llewellyn broke away in the third minute of time added on to score Wrexham's fourth.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
