Sky Bet League One top scorer Cole Stockton netted his 11th goal of the season in all competitions as two second-half goals gave Morecambe a 2-0 victory over Lincoln at the Mazuma Stadium.
Stockton was the man to kick-start the Shrimps with his ninth league goal of a superb campaign so far with central defender Scott Wootton clinching the win with a neat finish 12 minutes from time.
Stockton broke the deadlock with a superb 25-yard effort after 53 minutes after turning past two defenders and firing a superb effort into the bottom left-hand corner of Josh Griffiths’ goal.
Wootton then secured victory with a second as he turned sharply in the box to drill the ball past Griffiths from close range.
Lincoln produced some neat football but struggled to create any clear-cut chances against a solid Shrimps defence.
Their best chance to pull one back came for Dan N’Lundulu after he ran onto a poor Wootton back pass only to see his effort well saved by Morecambe goalkeeper Kyle Letheren.
Michael Appleton’s side produced a late flourish with Teddy Bishop and Anthony Scully seeing shots blocked with Morecambe going close to a third through a long-range Callum Jones shot that flew inches wide.
