Lincoln City play host to Morecambe at Sincil Bank Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The The Red Imps have drawn both of the previous games against their opponents, however.

The last time the two teams met at Lincoln City was back in November 2000, over five years ago, as the The Red Imps squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 3-2 in a (Associate Members) match.
