Alfreton came from behind to see off Lincoln 2-1 and secure only their second league win of the season, piling the misery on their hosts who still have just one solitary win to their name.
Nicky Nicolau lit up a tame opening with a stunning right-wing free-kick for the hosts which found the bottom corner from fully 30 yards in the 27th minute.
Imps keeper Paul Farman preserved the lead when he parried Nathan Arnold's strike to safety but the visitors did level matters after the break.
Arnold's header from the left side of the penalty area found Anthony Wilson and he fired home right-footed from 12 yards.
Farman again had to be at his best to keep out a cross-come-shot from Danny Meadows before opposite number Jon Stewart denied Jamie Taylor from the centre of the area.
But the visitors completed the turnaround when Darran Kempson headed home from close range 10 minutes from time.
