Match ends, Forest Green Rovers 3, Lincoln City 1.
Forest Green maintained their 100% start to the National League season with victory over Lincoln City.
Elliot Frear's free-kick fell to James Jennings, who fired home the loose ball, and Aaron O'Connor then pounced on the rebound from a Kurtis Guthrie drive to put Rovers two goals up.
O'Connor missed a penalty minutes before Alex Simmons pulled one back for the Imps to ensure a nervous finish.
However, Keanu Marsh-Brown lobbed Paul Farman late on to wrap up the points.
Forest Green boss Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"We knew it was going to be very tough, very hot conditions, but very pleased to get the three points.
"Lincoln City are a strong team, they haven't lost this season until they came here.
"James Jennings had a terrible injury last year and he was out for the whole season except for the last play-off second-leg game, but he's a very good footballer - it's been a tough road for him and when he scores a goal it's a credit to him."
