Adriano Moko's 80th-minute strike earned Cambridge United a 2-1 home success over Lincoln City in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

The hosts had enjoyed a dream start when Tom Elliott - who later hobbled off injured - headed in Robbie Willmott's right-wing cross from 12 yards.

The Imps levelled six minutes before the break, Andrew Boyce meeting Adam Smith's left-wing corner and directing a smart downward header into the net from the edge of the six-yard box.

Boyce almost bagged a carbon copy of his first goal on 50 minutes, but this time his header from Smith's accurate cross into the box was well parried by Jonathan Hedge.

But it was Cambridge who snatched the win 10 minutes from time, Moko collecting a neat pass from Harrison Dunk close to the penalty spot and drilling a right-foot shot into the top corner.
