This wasn't the most riveting game of end to end football I've ever seen, but Parramore did enough to see off their hosts and progress into the next round of the League Cup.
Lincoln Moorlands starting the season as whipping boys of the Baris NCEL Prem, but after a complete overhaul of their playing staff, they've improved no end and have turned the corner..
To be fair to Worksop, they deserved to win and on any other night, Lee Holmes might of had a hat trick to his name.
Mark Wall had rattled Lincoln's crossbar with a powerful header inside the first ten minutes and Lee Thompson fired narrowly wide of the goal, but neither side had broken the deadlock by half time.
Shortly after the interval, Moorlands got a free kick just outside the Parramore area for a lunging tackle from Adam Fretwell, but Craig Roche's 20 yard pile driver free kick went narrowly wide of the left hand upright.
On 60 minutes, Lee Thompson quickly took a free kick from inside his own half, down the right flank, for Lee Holmes to run on to. Craig Turner, Lincoln's keeper, came charging to the edge of the area in a bid to intercept the danger, but he made a complete Hash of his clearance and Lee Holmes, nicked the ball past hinm and ran on to knock the ball into the completely open and unguarded goal.
Late in the game Craig Turner was booked, for outspokenly questioning the referee's judgement once too often in an angry manner.
Hmm, me thinks Mr Turner should be looking at his own part in his teams downfall tonight, before trying to find fault with anybody else's performance.
Deep into injury time, Lee Holmes almost added a second Parramaore goal, but he lashed the ball into the side netting from 6 yards out.
