History of the Morecambe v Lincoln City fixture

Lincoln City face a trip to Morecambe at Christie Park on Saturday afternoon, and will hope to continue their unbeaten record at the ground. Out of their two previous meetings, the The Red Imps have won one, and drawn the other.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Two match.
