Our football match prediction:
Burnley are a real force to be reckoned with at home and that is more than obvious. The Clarets did well to hold Premier League leaders Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at the weekend and they are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s football game against Lincoln City. The Premier League side aim to book their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Coach Sean Dyche is unlikely to field the best possible side against Lincoln City, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, the hosts are likely to beat the National League team at their Turf Moor. Danny Cowley’s men are on a four-match winning run in all competitions; the visitors outplayed the likes of Ipswich Town and Brighton in previous two rounds, but we predict that they will experience all sorts of problems at the back in Saturday’s clash against Burnley.
Highlighted Player (Tom Heaton):
Tom Heaton is a goalkeeper who was born on 15 April, 1986 in Chester, England. Heaton played for Manchester United during his youth career, but he did not make a first-team debut for the Old Trafford outfit. During his period at Manchester United he played for several lower-league clubs on loan (Swindon Town, Royal Antwerp, Cardiff City, QPR, Rochdale, Wycombe Wanderers). After ending his loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers in 2010, the goalkeeper signed a contract with Cardiff City. After making 29 appearances for Bristol City in the Championship, he joined Burnley in 2013. He played for the Clarets in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the team avoid relegation to the English second tier. However, Tom Heaton and his teammates returned to the top flight at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Heaton made his England debut in a warm-up game against Australia in 2016 as the Three Lions recorded a 2-1 win over the Socceroos, while he was also a member of the squad that represented the country at the Euro 2016 finals.
