The National League leaders stunned Premier League outfit Burnley on Saturday, making FA Cup history with a 1-0 win.

Lincoln City made FA Cup history on Saturday, becoming the first non-league side to reach the FA Cup quarter-final since QPR in 1914.

Sean Raggett's 89th-minute header at the back post sealed a shocking 1-0 win for the Imps at Premier League side Burnley. 

Burnley 0-1 Lincoln City: Non-league Imps cause huge upset

The National League side - who had previously knocked out Championship sides Ipswich Town and Brighton & Hove Albion in earlier rounds - battled Burnley to a stalemate at Turf Moor, and reaped their reward in the game's dying moments with the goal from a set piece. 

The last time a non-league side advanced to the semi-final the FA Cup was the 1911-12 season, when Swindon reached the last four.

And Sutton United could yet join Lincoln in the sixth round if they can produce a huge upset in beating Arsenal on Monday.
