Derek Adams says the Shrimps are unlucky to come away from Lincoln empty handed.
The hosts were ahead fortuitously at the break thanks to Max Sanders' deflected free-kick, before adding a second through Ben House midway through the second half.
Jensen Weir pulled one back with a stunning strike from the edge of the box into the bottom-right corner, but the Imps held on to their lead to claim maximum points.
Adams was impressed with his side, and says the Shrimps deserved more from the game.
"To pass the ball the way we did, to create the openings we did, we shouldn't be coming away from here with no points today," he said.
"To come away to Lincoln, they've a very good home record here, but we came here and dominated posession today, we created a number of very good opportunities, hit the post twice first half and second half.
"They get a first goal by a deflected shot off our side of the wall and in, but over the piece, I was delighted with the way we played."
While Weir's 81st minute strike proved to be a consolation, the visitors can't be faulted for going all out to find a late leveller, and the gaffer was quick to hail his team's effort and work rate.
He continued: "You can't fault the players.
"The players were on it throughout the afternoon, they were trying to get that victory, they worked ever so hard, it's unfortunate we couldn't get that equaliser today.
"I've been delighted the way we've been playing, the only two games are Cheltenham and Cambridge, the other games we've been well in, we've competed well in large spells in the games.
"I was speaking to a number of Lincoln's people after the game and I think they were surprised at how well Morecambe did today, and the way we passed the ball and created openings."
