Howe: Matchwinner

A hotly-contested penalty was enough to give Chris Sutton his second successive win as Lincoln boss at Macclesfield.

In the 68th minute, and against the run of play, Moses Swaibu went sprawling over Jon Brain's outstretched legs to earn the spot-kick. Rene Howe scored the spot-kick for his fourth goal of the season.

Macc had dominated the first half with John Rooney showing all his pedigree on the half hour. He jinked neatly inside the box only to fire a low shot inches past the far post.

Then in the 37th minute he clipped an audacious shot from 30 yards that crashed off the top of the crossbar.

Lincoln looked more organised after the break with Stefan Oakes forcing a full-length save from Brain in the 53rd minute.

Substitute Ricky Sappleton twice nearly equalised in the closing stages, forcing a good save from Rob Burch with a 15-yard drive in the 83rd minute and then seeing a looping header clawed wide by the flying Burch at the death.
