Lincoln City 3-2 Woking

National League leaders Lincoln City held off a spirited Woking at Sincil Bank to stay three points clear at the top.

Matt Rhead headed in a Bradley Wood cross, but within 60 seconds Gozie Ugwu headed the visitors level from Fabio Saraiva's floated free-kick.

Dayle Southwell missed a penalty for Lincoln, but substitute Josh Ginnelly made it 2-1 to the hosts in the second half via a deflection off Terell Thomas.

Rhead bagged his second from Billy Knott' through ball, taking his chance with a good turn and shot.

Woking did not give up and, after substitute Max Kretzschmar was fouled in the box, Fabio Saraiva scored from the spot.
