A late penalty by Colin Larkin sealed 10-man Lincoln City a priceless 2-1 win against Dartford this afternoon.
The Imps took the lead after just seven minutes when Vadaine Oliver headed in Tom Miller's cross.
The woodwork then denied Lincoln twice with Larkin rattling the bar twice within 10 seconds.
But the game then swung in Dartford's favour when Jake Sheridan was sent off just before half-time following a tackle on Lee Noble.
It gave Dartford hope for the second half and they hauled themselves level when Noble drilled home in the 76th minute.
But Larkin ensured Lincoln won their first game since ironically beating Dartford 4-2 before Christmas, slotting home from the spot after Jake Jones was fouled.
