Lincoln City 2-0 Boreham Wood

Lincoln City stayed third in the National League with a straightforward 2-0 victory over Boreham Wood at Sincil Bank.

There was little for either side to shout about for most of the first half. The home crowd were left further subdued when defender Lee Beevers was grounded for six minutes after going down with a serious injury, and he had to be stretchered off.

In the sixth minute of added time at the end of the first half, however, Nathan Arnold gave the Imps the lead after Matt Rhead nodded down an Alex Woodyard cross.

Danny Cowley's men secured victory in the second half when Sam Habergham's centre was controlled by Rhead, and the striker chipped Grant Smith expertly.
