Recent respective form guides

Stockport County have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Hatters have scored 9, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Lincoln City's away form is none too clever either, losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Stockport Co. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca Cola League Two with a return of just 27 points from their 29 games thus far. Lincoln City's 39 points from 30 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position.
