Lincoln Red Imps host Slovan Bratislava at Tehelné pole on Thursday in the UEFA Europa Conference League looking for their first win of the campaign.

With three defeats from three, the Gibraltar outfit are languishing at the bottom of Group F without a single point and just one goal scored.

However, their form has improved lately, scoring eight times in their last two domestic games to build momentum ahead of their latest European encounter.

Their Slovakian rivals, meanwhile, are in third place with four points, having beaten the Lincolns 2-0 in the first-leg last month.
