Liam Bellamy's 62nd-minute strike earned Ebbsfleet a 1-1 draw at Lincoln.
The home side took the lead just three minutes into the contest when midfielder Nicky Nicolau found the bottom corner with a right-footed strike from the edge of the area.
Ebbsfleet responded well and almost equalised after 18 minutes but Paul Farman was able to tip Neil Barrett's header round the post.
Phil Walsh missed a great opportunity to level the scores three minutes later when he failed to hit the target with a six-yard header.
The Fleet were eventually on level terms, Bellamy finding the top corner with a curling effort on his return from suspension.
John Nutter came close to finding the Imps a late winner but his curling free-kick was tipped round a post by Preston Edwards.
