Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After failing to win the previous three league fixtures, Coventry City will be looking to return to winning ways in the League One when they host Lincoln City at their St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium on Matchday 22. The Sky Blues are eager to stay in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League, and, no doubt, upcoming festive fixtures are of big importance for Mark Robins’ men.
Coventry City are eyeing their eighth home win of the season, and they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Lincoln City, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Burton Albion and Tranmere Rovers in the previous two league fixtures. However, you should bear in mind that Tranmere midfielder Corey Taylor was sent off in the 40th minute of the game. Anyhow, Coventry City are more of a team than Lincoln City, and home win should be considered.

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.
