A Steve Kabba brace helped Barnet to victory over Lincoln.
Kabba scored a header and then added a penalty after Ali Fuseini fouled Jordan Parkes before Mark Hughes curled in to take the hosts into the break 3-0 up.
Lincoln hit back after the interval through Luke Howell's close-range effort and Ashley Grimes' fine finish.
Grimes then had a penalty saved by Bees keeper Jake Cole before Izale McLeod met a Mark Marshall cross to lift Barnet out of the relegation zone.
Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire: "The first 45 minutes was a shambles, if I'm honest, we weren't at the races. We needed to get a decent start but got totally the opposite and it could have been 5-0 at half-time.
"At half-time, I said to the players: 'go and play with a bit of pride'. We did that and it might have been a different game if we'd scored the penalty but it was too easy for them to score goals today.
"Our support was fantastic, but I feel for them having to watch that first 45 minutes. It was a horror show and it was nowhere near good enough."
Barnet manager Paul Fairclough told BBC London 94.9: "Sometimes a win can feel almost like a defeat. At half-time, the dressing room was buzzing. We were then on a slippery slope but the lads have shown tremendous character to come back and seal the win for us.
"We had to rely on a penalty save to keep the momentum and belief going. We made life difficult for ourselves but it's a win and we'll take anything at the moment as three points are vital to us.
"We don't do things simple at Underhill and it was another day of drama at Barnet Football Club."
