Lincoln City 3-0 Eastleigh

Matt Rhead
Matt Rhead opened the scoring for Lincoln

Lincoln City scored three first-half goals to extend Eastleigh's winless run to eight games in all competitions.

The Imps dominated the first half, opening the scoring through Matt Rhead's fine lob, his 17th goal of the league campaign.

James Caton's fierce strike doubled Lincoln's lead before Jack Muldoon's angled strike made it 3-0 before half-time.

Chris Moyses' side were not troubled by Eastleigh in the second half.

Lincoln City manager Chris Moyses told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"A professional performance from start to finish. I'm really really proud of the boys, they thoroughly deserved that today.

"We were good with the ball, we were good without the ball and made life very difficult for them at times. We've talked about being ruthless at both ends of the pitch and today we were.

"I said during our barren spell that we weren't playing too badly and that it would turn the corner and as you can see from our last two games it has done."
