Lincoln City 4-1 Alfreton Town

Lincoln ended a run of eight games without a win by thrashing third-placed Alfreton in the Conference Premier.

The Imps took the lead after just eight minutes when Darran Kempson diverted a Mitch Austin cross into his own net.

Nick Wright fired in to make it 2-0, before Nick Fenton headed a goal back for Alfreton from a Tom Shaw corner.

But Lincoln sealed victory with a 20-yard strike from Jon Nolan and Delano Sam-Yorke added some gloss to the scoreline late on with a header.

It was the first time City have celebrated victory at home since 28 September and lifted them to 16th in the table.
