Imp-ossible! Lincoln City stun Burnley to become first non-league side in last eight since 1914

Non-league Lincoln City produced another stunning FA Cup upset to beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor and book their place in the quarter-finals.

The National League leaders, conquerors of Ipswich and Brighton and Hove Albion in earlier rounds, stunned a side with one of the best home records in the Premier League to progress to the last eight of the FA Cup for the first time in their history.

The Clarets, who had lost just three of their last 29 competitive home matches before today, failed to kill off Danny Cowley’s side when they finally began to exert pressure in the final 15 minutes, with Andre Gray particularly wasteful in front of goal.

And they were made to pay for their profligacy, as defender Sean Raggett headed home from close range after an 89th-minute corner, with goalline technology proving the ball crossed the line before Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton pushed the ball clear.

Lincoln are the first non-league side to reach the last eight since 1914.
