Recent respective form guides

Lincoln City's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Red Imps have scored 7, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Barrow's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Bluebirds have hit 9 goals, 23 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Lincoln City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 31 matches.

Barrow are stuck down in the relegation zone of Blue Square (Conference) Premier with a return of just 32 points from their 31 games thus far.
