History of the Chester City v Lincoln City fixture

Lincoln City travel to take on Chester City at The Saunders Honda Stadium on Monday evening, 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 23 and win only 8 of the 37 games.

The last time the two teams met at Chester City was back in September 1999, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a League Division Three match.
