Lincoln City face a trip to York City at Bootham Crecent on Saturday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Red Imps will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 19 and win only 6 of the 36 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2002, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Division Three match.
