The Skrill North outfit showed no signs of their struggles in the league as they continued to put Lincoln on the backfoot.
Glover then went close again with a volley from a Niall Thompson centre.
Lincoln's best chance fell to Sean Newton whose cross-cum-shot evaded everybody at the back post requiring the faintest of touches.
Marlon Jackson, making his debut for the Imps following his arrival from Bury on a two-month loan deal, saw a shot deflected just wide before the break.
The home side came out firing after the restart and took the lead when Thompson's cross was converted by Aaron Williams.
Lincoln summoned a response with Marlon Jackson forcing Jose Veiga into a good save while Andrew Boyce had an effort cleared off the line.
But City did find the breakthrough when Boyce turned in from close range after latching on to Dixon's knockdown.
