History of the Lincoln City v Chesterfield fixture

Lincoln City play host to Chesterfield at Sincil Bank Stadium on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Red Imps are clearly on top, having won 26 and lost only 12 of the 50 games.

The last time the two teams met at Lincoln City was just over four years ago, in November 2003, as the The Red Imps squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 4-3 in an (Associate Members) match.

Recent respective form guides

Lincoln City's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While The Red Imps have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Chesterfield's away form is none too clever either, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. Those games have seen the Spireites pummel 13 goals, and let in 6.

Lincoln City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 14 games have yielded only 9 points. Chesterfield's total of 24 points from their 14 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
