Recent respective form guides

Lincoln City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Red Imps have scored 8, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Grimsby Town's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Mighty Mariners have hit 8 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Lincoln City find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 6 points from their 6 matches. Grimsby Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 4 points from 6 matches.
