Footymad preview History of the Newport County v Lincoln City fixture

Lincoln City travel to take on Newport County at Newport Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Red Imps will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 11 and win only 3 of the 21 games.

The last time the two teams met at Newport County was amazingly over twenty years ago, in March 1986, with Lincoln City inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Exiles in a Third Division match.
