Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool and Lincoln City, the two teams who are eyeing promotion to the Championship, face each other at Bloomfield Road on Matchday 11. The Seasiders have been having their ups and downs in the English third tier of late and, as a result, they sit in 6th position in the standings ahead of the visit of the Imps. Blackpool aim to retain their spot in top six and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Friday’s football game.
Lincoln City suffered a dip in form and seeing that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-0 loss to Oxford United, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Blackpool’s party at Bloomfield Road. You should bear in mind that in their last meeting in a competitive match the Seasiders recorded a 2-0 win over the Imps.
Highlighted Player (Sullay Kaikai):
Sullay Kaikai is an English footballer who plays for Blackpool as a winger. Kaikai is a product of Crystal Palace football academy and it has to be noted that he made three appearances in the league for the Eagles before starting his loan spell with Crawley Town.
The 182-cm tall footballer, who is capable of playing as both winger and attacking midfielder, then signed a loan deal with Cambridge United where he scored 5 goals in 25 appearances in the league. Sullay Kaikai played for the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Brentford and Charlton Athletic before moving to Netherlands.
Kaikai, though, made only six appearances for NAC Breda in the Eredivisie before returning to England. Sullay Kaikai signed a two-year deal with Blackpool in July, 2019 with an option of a further year. The Blackpool winger was born in Southwark, London on August 26, 1995.
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.
