Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Lincoln City will be looking to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Charlton Athletic when they take on AFC Wimbledon at LNER stadium. Despite the defeat, the Imps booked their place in the playoffs, and they are now on a quest to clinch third position in the standings. Both Howarth and Sanders are pushing for a start for Lincoln City, who are eyeing their tenth home win of the season.
The Dons, on the other hand, did well to secure yet another League One survival, meaning that they have absolutely nothing to play for in Sunday’s clash. Lincoln City want this win more than AFC Wimbledon, and we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. The Dons fit-again attacker Shayon Harrison is likely to play some part in the LNER stadium clash.
