Lincoln City prepare to entertain Macclesfield Town at Sincil Bank Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Red Imps are clearly on top, winning 9 and drawing 4 of the 14 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sincil Bank Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2010, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Two match.
