Lincoln City 3 Hereford 2 - full-time
Freescoring Lincoln City stretched their unbeaten run to 10 games this afternoon with a thrilling 3-2 win against Hereford at Sincil Bank.
After a drab first half, the Imps took the lead before the break with a stunning 35-yard lob from top scorer Jamie Taylor.
But the visitors were back level early in the second half when Ryan Bowman fired in from Josh O'Keefe's brilliantly weighted pass.
However, City were back in front in the 71st minute when substitute Vadaine Oliver's flick on was headed into his own net by ex-Imp Joe Heath.
With nine minutes left, substitute Colin Larkin then scored from the penalty spot after Jake Sheridan was hauled down by Andy Gallinagh.
A fine effort from Will Evans raised anxiety in the home stands, but Lincoln, who have scored 11 goals in their last four games, held on to end Hereford's seven-game unbeaten run.
Lincoln: Farman, Gray, Boyce, Miller, Gilbert, MIlls, Fofana, Smith, Sheridan, Power, Taylor. Subs: Garner, Oliver, Bassele, Larkin, Turner.
