Lincoln City play host to Bournemouth at Sincil Bank Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Red Imps are clearly on top, winning 54.55% of the games played between the two.
The last time the two teams met at Lincoln City was back in October 2002, over five years ago, with Bournemouth inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the The Red Imps in a League Division Three match.

Recent respective form guides
Lincoln City losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. A total of 9 goals have been scored by the The Red Imps in those games, with 6 conceded.
The away form of Bournemouth is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Cherries have hit 5 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Lincoln City's 36 points from 27 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position. Bournemouth are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League Two with a return of just 11 points from their 27 games thus far.
