Match ends, Lincoln City 4, Alfreton Town 1.
Lincoln ended a run of eight games without a win by thrashing third-placed Alfreton in the Conference Premier.
The Imps took the lead after just eight minutes when Darran Kempson diverted a Mitch Austin cross into his own net.
Nick Wright fired in to make it 2-0, before Nick Fenton headed a goal back for Alfreton from a Tom Shaw corner.
But Lincoln sealed victory with a 20-yard strike from Jon Nolan and Delano Sam-Yorke added some gloss to the scoreline late on with a header.
It was the first time City have celebrated victory at home since 28 September and lifted them to 16th in the table.
