Lincoln City 3-0 Gateshead

Sean Raggett scored his first Lincoln goal as they beat Gateshead to record a third successive National League win.

Defender Raggett, who arrived from Dover during the summer, headed home Alex Woodyard's left-wing cross as the Imps raced into a sixth-minute lead at Sincil Bank.

City goalkeeper Paul Farman denied Ryan Bowman from point-blank range to preserve the advantage.

Nathan Arnold doubled the lead, finishing neatly past keeper Sam Johnson after being played through on goal by Woodyard five minutes into the second period.

Striker Adam Marriott blasted home left-footed to seal a convincing victory seven minutes from time, leaving Gateshead without a win in three.
