Macclesfield came from a goal down to ease to victory against Lincoln City.

The Imps took the lead just before the break when Ben Tomlinson lashed the ball home from the edge of the box.

But the Silkmen hit back after the break when Scott Boden slid the ball past Lincoln goalkeeper Paul Farman

Midfielder Jack Mackreth fired a shot across Farman to put the home side ahead and Chris Holroyd made sure of the points when he found the top corner with a 20-yard strike.
