Lincoln City 4-1 Barnet

Ben Tomlinson
Ben Tomlinson has now scored nine goals for Lincoln City this season

Conference leaders Barnet were comfortably beaten by mid-table Lincoln in a dominant display from the Imps.

Ben Tomlinson fired the home side into the lead as his volley bounced over 'keeper Graham Stack and into the net.

The lead was doubled as Alan Power rifled a right-footed shot into the top corner from 25 yards.

Jon Nolan got a third and substitute Conner Robinson slid in to make it 4-0 before Luke Gambin's left-footed shot proved merely a consolation.

The result means Barnet have their lead at the top of the Conference reduced to six points as Bristol Rovers beat lowly Nuneaton. Lincoln climb to 11th, four points outside the play-off places.

It was Barnet's worst league defeat of the season, although a weakened Barnet side did lose 6-2 at home to Concord Rangers in their FA Trophy first round replay last month.
