Lincoln continued their solid start to life back in the English Football League with victory over struggling Chesterfield.The Imps were not at their best against a Spireites team lacking confidence and quality but they did not need to be.Michael Bostwick gave City the lead when his shot took a huge deflection off Bradley Barry and spun beyond wrong-footed keeper Joe Anyon.

The Imps doubled their lead on 25 minutes and again a Spireites player had the final touch as Andy Kellett inadvertently drilled Harry Anderson’s cross into his own net.Chesterfield pulled a goal back with eight minutes left. After Anderson was adjudged to have brought down Barry in the box, substitute Kristian Dennis netted from the spot.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsLincoln City21Vickers23EardleyBooked at 45mins25RaggettBooked at 69mins15Dickie3Habergham26AndersonSubstituted forLongat 89’minutes16Bostwick30Woodyard14Maguire-DrewSubstituted forWhitehouseat 86’minutes10Green8PalmerSubstituted forGinnellyat 77’minutesSubstitutes1Farman2Long4Whitehouse5Waterfall7Ginnelly9Rhead28ArnoldChesterfield12Anyon5Wiseman6Evatt27Barry24Kellett15RowleySubstituted forMitchellat 77’minutes19De GirolamoSubstituted forDennisat 56’minutes23Flores28Weir26McCourtSubstituted forReedat 56’minutes10O’GradySubstitutes7Mitchell8Sinnott9Dennis20Maguire25Reed32Briggs34JonesReferee:John BrooksAttendance:9,485Match StatsHome TeamLincoln CityAway TeamChesterfieldPossessionHome52%Away48%ShotsHome11Away6Shots on TargetHome4Away2CornersHome3Away1FoulsHome21Away11Live TextPosted at Match ends, Lincoln City 2, Chesterfield 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Lincoln City 2, Chesterfield 1.Posted at 90’+5′ Attempt missed.
