Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Priestfield Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Gillingham and Lincoln City, the two teams who are level on points ahead of Matchday 18. The Gills aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Rotherham United, while the Imps are on a four-game winless run in the League One ahead of Matchday 18. A close encounter is on the cards, and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Priestfield Stadium.
You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Lincoln City’s previous four league fixtures. The Imps failed to find the net in three of their last four league matches. Speaking of the home side, there have been under 2.5 goals in three of their last five league games. Anyhow, we believe that fans at Priestfield Stadium are going to see a low-scoring match on Saturday.
Highlighted Player (Ousseynou Cisse):
Born in Suresnes, France on April 7, 1991, Ousseynou Cisse is a defensive midfielder who plays for Gillingham in the League One. After spending his youth career at Jouy-le-Moutier, Paris Saint-Germain and Amiens, Cisse continued playing for les Licornes at senior level, making 36 league appearances for the club.
The 195-cm-tall footballer played for the likes of Dijon, Rayo Vallecano, Wassland-Beveren (loan), Tours and Milton Keynes Dons as well before signing a deal with League One side Gillingham in the summer of 2019.
Ousseynou Cisse joined the Gills on a free transfer effective and he is expected to make his League One debut August 3, 2019, when Gillingham kick off the new season with a match against Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium. The French player is mostly used as a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a centre-back 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.
