Henry Boyd 15', Bob Donaldson 49' (pen)
2-3-5. Henry Boyd 15' scores against his old team. Referee Mr Fox of Sheffield recovers enough to officiate the match despite the assault he suffered at the hands of Lincoln City fans at Sincil Bank 01/04/1897 for awarding two penalty kicks to the Heathens. The match official didn't seem fazed by his bad experience after awarding the Heathens another penalty during this fixture, the third in two games.
