Our prediction for this League 1 match:
LNER stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Lincol and Bristol Rovers. The Imps produced one of their best displays on the season at the weekend, with the team outclassing Accrington 3-0 on the road, but they are still sitting in the danger zone. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ben House, who scored his seventh goal of the season in the last league match, while Dylan Duffy is likely to make his Lincoln debut against Bristol Rovers.
The Pirates, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game losing run in the League One. Bristol Rovers are stuck in the middle of the table with 37 points in their pocket, and given Lincoln’s performance against the Accy Stanley, home win should be considered. As for the away side, both Ryan Loft and Luke McCormick could sneak into the starting line-up.
Highlighted Player (Teddy Bishop):
Having joined Ipswich as an eight-year-old, Teddy Bishop rose through the ranks at Portman Road to become one of the key players for the Tractor Boys. Bishop’s road to prominence hit a serious roadblock in his first year of the academy scholarship when he endured a serious back injury, but it was in 2014 that he went from strength to strength – proving his worth at the club and emerging as one of the most promising players in the squad.
The total of 36 appearances in his debut season with the first team were more than enough to make an impression on the fans and the club hierarchy which offered him a new long-term deal.
This deep-lying midfielder in characterized by impressive passing accuracy, vision and great reading of the play. Bishop is an asset defensively as well, but he is most comfortable sitting just above the back line, spraying balls around. As a two-footed midfielder, Teddy Bishop is regularly being watched by a number of Premier League biggest clubs.
Highlighted Team (Bristol Rovers):
Established back on August 1, 1883, Bristol Rovers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. Bristol Rovers were formed after a meeting at the Eastville Restaurant under the name of Black Arabs after the Arabs rugby team.
This name, though, lasted no more than one season as the club was renamed Eastville Rovers in 1884. Five years later the club’s name was officially changes to Bristol Rovers. Nicknamed the Pirates, Bristol Rovers welcome their opponents at Memorial Stadium Horfield, the venue with the capacity of 12,296. Bristol Rovers are well known for their blue and white home kit, but they are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels.
Ricky Lambert, who used to play for the likes of Southampton and Liverpool in the Premier League, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable footballers. It has to be noted that Lambert scored 51 goals in 128 appearances for the Pirates in the league.
