Jordan Burrow has eight goals for the season

Lincoln City easily overcame Conference strugglers Nuneaton Town to record a third straight win.

Jordan Burrow superbly flicked in Marcus Marshall's cross to give the Imps the lead and Jake Caprice threaded in Ben Tomlinson for a second.

A mix up in the visitors' defence then allowed Burrow to tap in his second.

Nuneaton's Theo Streete was sent off for fouling last man Jon Nolan, but Gavin Cowan headed in Adam Dawson's free-kick for a late consolation.
