Personally, I'm very bored of this 'derby'. It doesn't mean that much to me aside from the three points I hope we gain. Don't even know when it is, the 28th? Or New Years Day. We need to get out of this league as soon as possible so we can play the filth up the A180 and even Barnsley.

I'd like to see us avenge our loss at yours earlier this season but other than that it's a struggle to muster any enthusiasm for a game against a lowly Lincoln. If we were both at the top it might be a bit better but with the inevitable poor following from there it just seems like another game against a bottom half team. Not meaning to be offensive - it's bad for our county's football that we're both in this league and Scunny are the only Lincolnshire FL representatives.

We must be as Lincs Police have been issuing warnings to both elements through the local media today.....both sets of spotters will be out on patrol, trouble will not be tolerated, if you just want to fight you will be disappointed...(normally the case when we play Lincoln as they dont turn up.....bdum tssshhhh) etc etc.

The way they are talking it up makes it sound like there have been mass brawls and running riots in recent fixtures.....sounds like they are trying to justify the immense police presence that will be on show (no doubt on double bubble time) ahead of the invoice the club will receive.

I don't see it as a derby. I don't mind Lincoln, they have always been irrelevant although a lot of  Lincoln fans despise Town. I honestly do think a lot of it has to do with envy which I am guilty of in regards to most of our real rivals.

I think the fact that it comes between two very important games at the top of the table against Macclesfield kind of takes the edge off it as well - if I had to choose one of the three Christmas games to lose, I'd be inclined to say the Lincoln game because losing (one of) the other two would mean ground lost on Macclesfield.

Obviously I still want to win the derby though (and preferably all 3 if possible!)!

If we lost to Lincoln we would probably lose ground on Macclesfield too

Sadly due to the fact that Lincoln fans put more effort with poor excuses not to turn up than actually turn up, your team has become a poor derby fixture almost treated as another non league game.

Lincoln are the worst supported Lincs derby team.  Scunthorpe almost filled the away end when they came, Lincoln bring around a 3rd of that support, shocking really.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Lincoln are a fair way below Town in the table. That's always a danger sign. Three points counts the same no matter who you beat to get them so the Lincoln game should be taken as seriously as Macc and Barnet - in Town's case more so when you consider our record against lower teams.

Obviously but the hypothetical point is if you had to choose to lose one then losing either of the Macc games would do more harm to our title hopes than losing to a mid-table team - if the game was against Wrexham who are in a similar position, no doubt we'd be prioritising the Macc games.
