Lincoln City 2-1 Barrow

Lincoln City climbed out of the Blue Square Bet Premier relegation zone with victory over Barrow.

The Imps dominated from the start and deservedly went ahead when Sam Smith slotted past visiting keeper Danny Hurst from Conal Platt's through ball.

Jean-Francois Christophe doubled the advantage with a long-range effort.

Adam Boyes forced home keeper Paul Farman into some smart saves before setting up Mike Pearson to notch a consolation strike for the Bluebirds.

The victory was Lincoln's first in any competition since David Holdsworth took over as manager.
