Recent respective form guides

Lincoln City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Red Imps have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Mansfield Town's away form is none too clever either, with a marvellous return of five wins and one defeat from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the Stags, and 8 goals against.

Lincoln City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 36 points from 32 matches.

Mansfield Town lie just outside the playoff positions in the Blue Square (Conference) Premier, picking up 56 from their 31 games so far.
