Lincoln City 0-2 Welling United

Welling have helped their chances of survival after defeating 10-man Lincoln in the Football Conference.

They opened the scoring against the run of play through midfielder Dominic Vose, who fired in from 25 yards.

Jason Williams then beat the offside trap as he slotted in the second past Paul Farman before the break.

Lincoln's Delano Sam-Yorke was sent off late in the game for tangling with Chris Bush, as victory leaves Welling three points off safety.

Lincoln City manager Chris Moyses told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"The last three home performances have been a disgrace, there's no two ways about it. It upsets me deeply.

"You can't keep going out with a game plan and then the players take it on themselves to change it. With the pitches the way they are at the moment, you've got to play percentage football and we're not doing that.

"I don't think we were carved open, it was a lack of responsibility within the back four.

"They didn't get out to block shots and that isn't acceptable. We know what's required to win a game of football at this time of year but don't carry it out."
