Macclesfield Town 1-2 Lincoln City

Lincoln moved up to fourth in the fledgling National League table with an excellent win at Macclesfield.

However it was the Silkmen who harried their opponents from the get-go. David Fitzpatrick and Kingsley James both tested goalkeeper Paul Farman.

James found the breakthrough for John Askey's men on the stroke of half-time. Danny Rowe set up Chris Holroyd to hit a post, and the midfielder was first to the rebound.

The Imps turned it all around in the second half. Harry Anderson got on the end of a swift counter-attack and beat Richie Branagan with a low drive on the hour.

And substitute Adam Marriott then showed Lincoln's goalscoring depth by converting a Luke Waterfall knock down to complete the comeback.
