Lincoln City defender Jamie Clapham's free-kick secured his hometown club's first win in five games at the expense of Macclesfield Town.
Moses Swaibu had put Lincoln into the lead when he slid in to convert Adam Watt's cross in the first half.
Macclesfield drew level when former Imps defender Hamza Bencherif was left unmarked on the back post.
Clapham sealed the win when he fired a 20-yard free-kick past Macclesfield keeper Jose Veiga.
Lincoln City caretaker manager Scott Lindsey told BBC Lincolnshire: "It's always nice to win but I think we thoroughly deserved it as well.
"When you have pace in abundance in wide areas you have to use it. I said I wanted 10 crosses into their box in the first half and we counted 20 and we looked dangerous from set pieces as well so I was pleased with that.
"We knew Macclesfield would also be strong at set pieces and we did concede but we showed a great passion and commitment to get back into the game.
