Recent respective form guides

Lincoln City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Red Imps have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Torquay Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Gulls's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Lincoln City are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 15 from their 13 matches played. Torquay Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 10 points from 13 matches.
