Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on the Valley when Charlton Athletic and Lincoln City face each other in the League One round 40. The Red Robins are four points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Chuks Aneke, who scored a late equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Accrington, is pushing for a start. Ben Watson could be recalled to the starting XI as well after sitting out the last league match.
Lincoln City, on the other hand, have already booked their place in the playoffs, meaning that boss Michael Appleton should opt to rest key players in Tuesday’s clash. Anyhow, Charlton want this win more than Lincoln, and we predict that the capital club will pick up vital three points from the Valley showdown. All Edun, McGrandles, and Morton are pushing for a start for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive 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.
