History of the Chester City v Lincoln City fixture

Lincoln City face a trip to Chester City at The Saunders Honda Stadium 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 24 and win only 9 of the 41 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2006, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 1 thriller, in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Chester City's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Blues have scored 4, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Lincoln City's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the The Red Imps have hit 9 goals, 16 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Chester City are currently lying in 20th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 44 from their 41 matches played. Lincoln City find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 49 points from their 42 matches.
