Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at LNER stadium pits together Lincoln and Crewe. The Imps aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Plymouth and Fleetwood, and a win over Crewe could see them regain their spot in top two. Talented midfielder Callum Morton, who found the net in the 2-1 loss to Fleetwood, is pushing for a start. The Railwaymen, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Blackpool on Tuesday evening, with the team keeping their playoffs hopes alive.
However, away win should not be considered as defender Donervorn Daniels suffered an injury in the midweek clash. In the first half of the season Lincoln defeated Crewe thanks to Harry Anderson’s goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. The likes of Harry Anderson, Liam Bridcutt, and Joe Walsh are likely to miss the game with injuries for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Liam Bridcutt ):
Liam Robert Bridcutt is a professional footballer who plays for Lincoln City as a defensive midfielder. Born in Reading, England on May 8, 1989, Bridcutt is a product of the Chelsea football academy, but he did not see any game action for the Blues at senior level. After ending his loan spells with Yeovil Town, Watford, and Stockport County, the 175-cm footballer signed a five-month contract with Brighton where he established himself as a first-team regular.
After making 132 appearances in the league for the Seagulls, Liam Bridcutt moved to Sunderland in the winter of 2014. He played for the likes of Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers as well before joining Lincoln City in January, 2020.
His main position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. The Lincoln City player has a dual citizenship (Scotland/England), and it has to be noted that he has two caps with the Scotland national team.
Highlighted Team (Crewe):
Crewe Aleandra are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at Gresty Road. The stadium was built in 1906, and it can hold up to 10,153 spectators. Founded back in 1877, Crewe Alexandra play their home games in red shirts and white shorts, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Railwaymen played their first game against North Staffs in 1877, with the two teams sharing the spoils (1-1) at Alexandra Recreation Ground. Nowadays, Crewe compete in the League 2 where they take on their main rivals Port Vale. In 2014 a match between the two sides resulted in violence and arrests. The likes of Wrexham, Macclesfield Town, Shrewsbury Town, and Stoke City are considered the club’s rivals as well.
In 2013 Crewe Alexandra clinched the Football League Trophy as they defeated Southend United 2-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium. Goals from Max Clayton and Luke Murphy helped the Railwaymen clinch their first and only Football League Trophy.
