Lincoln took another giant step towards promotion as they extended their lead at the top of Sky Bet League Two to 11 points with a 2-0 win at promotion rivals MK Dons.
John Akinde's 17th goal of the season midway through the first half sent Danny Cowley's side on their way, before Bruno Andrade rounded things off with a sweet strike in added time.
The Imps should have taken the lead after 19 minutes when Neal Eardley's cross from the right found Jason Shackell but his header was cleared off the line by Conor McGrandles.
Ryan Harley's soft but clumsy 34th-minute challenge on Shay McCartan inside the box was enough to convince referee Kevin Johnson to award a penalty, which Akinde slotted home.
The Dons were left raging when Chuks Aneke was felled in the Imps area under the challenge of Shackell but referee Johnson waved away the appeals.
And Andrade added his 11th goal of the season at the death with a glorious left-footed drive to ensure MK Dons slipped to third.
