BBC match report 

Neil McNab’s first game in charge.

Scott Willis cracked in a superb second-half goal to give Lincoln a 1-0 victory over Exeter that secured their first win in four games.

The midfielder won the ball outside the box before curling his shot into the top corner with 15 minutes of the game remaining.

The Imps had earlier wasted a string of chances, with Adie Mike heading straight at the keeper and Simon Yeo putting a header wide from 10 yards.

Exeter were denied in the 19th minute when former Lincoln man Justin Walker blasted a shot against the post.

The Grecians' hopes were dashed when Neil Whitworth was red-carded for a 66th-minute foul on Yeo, and from then on Lincoln were in control.
