Lincoln City play host to Accrington Stanley at Sincil Bank Stadium on Friday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Red Imps are clearly on top, winning 14 and drawing 6 of the 22 games played.

The last time the two teams met at Lincoln City was way back in the black-and-white days of September 1961, the The Red Imps carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Cup match.
