Lincoln City 4-1 Swindon Town

Lincoln City produced an impressive attacking display as they overcame Swindon to claim a second successive League Two win 4-1 .

A lively start from City was rewarded with a goal after 10 minutes. Harry Anderson was bundled over by Keshi Anderson and Akinde produced the coolest of penalties.

The second goal arrived after 29 minutes. Bruno Andrade's corner triggered a scramble before the ball was stabbed home by Bostwick.

Swindon fought back as half-time approached and pulled a goal back a minute before the interval. Matt Taylor's drive struck Scott Wharton, who had little chance to take evasive action, but the referee adjudged it to be handball and Doughty scored from the spot.

Green made an impact after coming off the bench, first setting up Harry Toffolo to make it 3-1 after 79 minutes before firing home the fourth goal in the 83rd minute.
