Recent respective form guides

Accrington Stanley's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Reds have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Lincoln City's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The The Red Imps's have scored 10 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.
