The Imps will look to extend their unbeaten run to six games when hosting Portsmouth on Saturday 18 February (3pm KO).

All the key information you need to know ahead of the fixture can be found in this match preview.


With the stadium close to capacity in home areas ahead of Saturday’s game, the club have now opened the buyback scheme for gold season members. Find out how to release your seat for resale HERE.

Very few tickets remain in home areas, so supporters are encouraged to purchase at the earliest point to avoid missing out.
