Manager Peter Jackson faced calls to resign from his own supporters after Lincoln fell to a 3-0 defeat against Dagenham & Redbridge.
The Imps supporters chanted for Jackson to quit during and after the match, in which his side were second best for long periods.
The recalled Jon Nurse put Daggers ahead after 13 minutes, bursting through the defence to blast the ball past goalkeeper Rob Burch.
It should have been 4-0 at the break, but Paul Benson missed a howler, knocking the ball over the bar from a mere two yards out after fine work by Josh Scott.
Nurse and Stuart Thurgood both hit the crossbar in the first half too, with Nurse's towering header clipping the woodwork, and Thurgood's cross rebounding off the top of the bar.
Danny Green doubled the advantage after 56 minutes, curling a peach of a strike beyond Burch after he was left completely unmarked in the area.
Nurse then completed the scoring after 71 minutes, as he prodded home Mark Arber's header from eight yards out.
Lincoln rarely threatened throughout, as they were outplayed all over the pitch, and Rene Howe's second-half drive that flashed wide of the post was the sum of their opportunities.
