History of the Lincoln City v Peterborough United fixture

Lincoln City prepare to entertain Peterborough United at Sincil Bank Stadium at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 9 of the 21 previous games, with the The Red Imps winning just 7.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sincil Bank Stadium was less than a year ago, in January 2007, the The Red Imps carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Lincoln City's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Red Imps have scored 7, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Peterborough's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Posh's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 9 goals for and 7 against.

Lincoln City are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League Two with a return of just 8 points from their 11 games thus far. Peterborough's total of 20 points from their 11 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the The Red Imps at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Posh come away with an easy victory. Away win
