Morecambe produced a fine display to beat Lincoln for only their second victory of the season.
Stewart Drummond gave the Shrimps the lead with a header from Craig Stanley's left-wing cross.
Phil Jevons doubled the advantage with his second penalty in successive weeks and Paul Mullin secured the points with a close-range finish.
Rene Howe pulled one back for Lincoln but the Imps then had Eric Lichaj sent off for kicking out at Laurence Wilson.
Lincoln City manager Chris Sutton told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:
"We win as a team and we lose as a team, I felt at half-time we were still in it but we conceded again just after half-time. Again we created chances but it wasn't to be.
"I think its fair to say we could have dealt with the goals a lot better but it's not about picking out individuals, we win and lose together."
