Match ends, Lincoln City 1, Eastleigh 2.
A wonderful team goal finished by Jack Midson helped Conference play-off chasers Eastleigh beat Lincoln City.
Neat one-touch build up ended with Ben Strevens flicking the ball through for Midson to poke home from eight yards.
The hosts equalised after the break when Ben Tomlinson finished from close range.
Parity was short-lived as Midson crossed for veteran Craig McAllister to put the visitors back in front just three minutes later.
Regardless of other results, a win at home against Kidderminster next Saturday will guarantee Eastleigh's place in the play-offs.
Lincoln, who have now won just one of their last eight matches, end the season at struggling Dartford.
Lincoln City coach David Preece told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:
"Without the ball we weren't up to the task today. They didn't do anything that was groundbreaking, they got the ball forward early and we needed to stay with runners and make things difficult for the opposition but we didn't do that, we've made it pretty easy for them I think.
"The organisation among the players wasn't there today for whatever reason. It's disappointing, especially at home because we've got a good group of fans who back us a lot but we haven't repaid that faith they've put in us.
"It's not just ability, it's character and we've got to make sure that runs like this don't go on. If players are playing for their future at this club or another they've got to make sure their performances are up to standard.
"If we can get players to improve the squad then we will do that."
Eastleigh manager Richard Hill told BBC Radio Solent:
"I think that's the most important three points of the season to date.
"We'd have all settled for a point prior to today, but the lads were fantastic.
"I'm just disappointed with the goal we gave away, we didn't defend it well enough."
