Darlington 3-1 Lincoln City

A Ryan Bowman brace helped Darlington to their third Blue Square Bet Premier win of the season against Lincoln.

Bowman's first came after just 29 seconds when John Campbell fed the new signing who spun quickly to drill his shot low past Imps keeper Joe Anyon.

He smashed in his second from 17 yards before pouncing on Anyon's misplaced pass to set up Campbell for the third.

Alan Power fired in from the edge of the box for the Imps but the Quakers held on for a deserved victory.
