Lincoln City 2-0 Macclesfield Town

Lincoln picked up their first win in four games after easing to victory over Macclesfield Town.

The home side quickly took the lead when a left-footed Tom Miller effort found the bottom corner from 12 yards.

Ben Tomlinson doubled the lead soon afterwards when he slotted past Rhys Taylor from six yards to put Lincoln 2-0 ahead inside 19 minutes.

Lincoln were reduced to 10 men when Jordan Burrow was sent off for serious foul play, but the Imps held on to win.
