Our prediction for this League 1 match:
AFC Wimbledon and Lincoln City, the two bottom-table sides, face each other at the Cherry Red Records Stadium in what is expected to be a highly entertaining clash. Following three consecutive wins, the Dons suffered a 1-0 loss to Burton Albion in their last league match, but they are surely capable of matching out-of-form Lincoln on home soil.
AFC Wimbledon defeated the likes of Rochdale (3-2) and Portsmouth (1-0) in previous two home games in the League One, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this Saturday. The Imps failed to find the net in last three league fixtures, and given their poor away record in the 2019/2020 season, home win should be considered. In their last meeting in a competitive match, AFC Wimbledon recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Lincoln City, with Lyle Monserrat scoring the only goal of the game.
Highlighted Player (Scott Wagstaff):
Scott Wagstaff is a Charlton Athletic product who plays for AFC Wimbledon as a midfielder. Born in Maidstone, England on March 31, 1990 the 178-cm tall scored 17 goals in 120 appearances for the Charlton senior team, before spending several seasons on loan at the likes of Bournemouth Nortwich Victoria and Leyton Orient.
In the 2013/2014 season the English footballer signed for Bristol City, penning a three-year deal with the Robins. After netting 8 goals in 72 appearances in the league for the club, Scott Wagstaff moved to Gillingham in the 2016/2017 season, signing a two-year deal with the League One side. The 178-cm-tall midfielder was released by the club chiefs in the summer of 2018.
Scott Wagstaff, who has yet to make his debut with the England national team, current plays for AFC Wimbledon in the League One. His main position is right midfield, but he is used as both central and left midfielder as well.
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.
