In-form Lincoln City have requested, and been granted an additional allocation for Saturday's trip to Reading.

The Imps are in imperious form, unbeaten in their last 12 fixtures- with 10 wins in that time.

Only league leaders Portsmouth have conceded less than Michael Skubala's Lincoln, who currently occupy the final play-off spot in sixth.

Reading, sat in 18th and six points clear of the relegation zone with five matches remaining, have won their last two home matches without conceding.

However, will have to bounce back from a heavy 5-2 defeat at Bolton Wanderers on Easter Monday.

1,020 away tickets have been sold so far, but Lincoln have requested more for this week.

Reading have given the club an extra 500, taking the allocation to around 1,500.

Up to 2,900 can be held in the South-West corner of the Select Car Leasing Stadium, but the Imps average less than 800 in away matches up to this point.

Reading have breached the 15,000 mark for home games in the last three fixtures, averaging almost 14,000 for the campaign with just Lincoln City and Blackpool still to play on home soil.

It will be the first meeting in Berkshire since the stadium's debut campaign in 1998, which Tommy Burns' side won 2-1.

Lincoln and Reading played out a 1-1 draw at Sincil Bank back in December, a game which the Royals dominated and had two goals ruled out.
