History of the Lincoln City v Shrewsbury Town fixture

Lincoln City prepare to entertain Shrewsbury Town at Sincil Bank Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 8 of the 16 previous games, with the The Red Imps winning just 4.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sincil Bank Stadium was just last season, in November 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Two match.
