History of the Lincoln City v Wycombe Wanderers fixture

Lincoln City prepare to entertain Wycombe Wanderers at Sincil Bank Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, beating their opponents 3 times from 7 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sincil Bank Stadium was two seasons ago, in March 2009, the The Red Imps carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Two match.
