History of the Lincoln City v Macclesfield Town fixture

Lincoln City prepare to entertain Macclesfield Town at Sincil Bank Stadium on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Red Imps are clearly on top, having won 6 and lost only 1 of the 10 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sincil Bank Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2005, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Two match.
