It`s back to league action this weekend when Lincoln City are the visitors to the Globe Arena. The Imps are not having the best of season and at the time of writing sit in 23rd position in the league table while last time out Morecambe moved up to 17th after the 5-0 demolition of Stockport.

So what of the season so far? Well to be honest it`s not been all that great starting off the season with a 2-1 defeat at Rotherham and then a 4-0 defeat at Championship side Leeds United. The first home game of the season brought with it a 2-0 loss to Torquay United but there was some success on the road with a 1-0 win at Gillingham. A home 1-1 draw with Crewe was followed by another loss at Rotherham 1-0 in the Jonstones Paint Trophy.

September got underway with another defeat at Chesterfield 2-1 but a much needed 1-0 home victory over Barnet followed. A disappointing 3-0 defeat at Accrington was followed by a 1-0 loss at home to newly promoted Stevenage. September ended with a 0-0 home draw with Burton Albion.

On to October and a trip to Southend was up next but yet again Lincoln failed to get anything from the game and came away with a 1-0 defeat. A 2-1 home win over Macclesfield was followed with a 2-0 defeat a Shrewsbury. October ended in a new manager in Steve Tilson two draws 0-0 at home to Stockport and 2-2 away at Wycombe.

So far this month Lincoln have lost their only league game 2-0 to Northampton Town but have had some FA Cup success with a 1-0 home victory over non-league Nuneaton.
