History of the Stockport County v Lincoln City fixture

Lincoln City pack their bags to visit Stockport County at Edgeley Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Red Imps will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 29 and win only 9 of the 51 games.

The previous match played between the two at Edgeley Park was more than three years back, in December 2007, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Stockport County need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Hatters have scored 8, a worringly large 19 have been leaked at the other end.

Lincoln City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the The Red Imps have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Stockport Co. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 24 points from 26 matches. Lincoln City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 21 games have yielded only 19 points.
