Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football match at Crown Ground pits together Accrington Stanley and Lincoln City. Accrington aim to extend their winning run in League One to four games, and they are surely eager to move a little closer to the playoffs berth. The Accy are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Lincoln, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the English fourth tier.
Lincoln City, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Doncaster and Portsmouth in the previous two league fixtures. The visitors do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Lancashire, and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the in-form hosts. In their last meeting at Crown Ground Accrington defeated Lincoln 4-3.
Highlighted Team (Lincoln):
Lincoln City are one of the oldest clubs competing in the League One as they were founded back in 1884. Lincoln City FC were established as an amateur association, but they turned professional in the 1891/1892 season.
Back then they played at John O’Gaunts stadium, but nowadays Sincil Bank is the club’s home ground. Sincil Bank was opened in 1895, holding up to 10,120 people. The club’s main colours are red, white and black, whilst the Imps wear green shirts and white shorts when playing on the road. Lincoln City and Mansfield Town are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals, but the Limps had some sort of local rivalry with Peterborough United, Hull City and York City as well.
Albert Iremonger (42 years and 312 days) is the oldest footballer to have played for the club, whilst Shane Nicholson (16 years and 112 days) is the youngest one. Lincoln City recorded a thrilling 9-1 victory over then local rivals Sleaford in their first game.
