Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After suffering back-to-back losses to the likes of Milton Keynes Dons and Doncaster Rovers on the road, Lincoln City will be looking to start a new winning run in the League One when they host Fleetwood Town at their Sincil Bank on Saturday afternoon. The Imps aim to climb to the play-offs berth and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game against the fellow promotion-chasing side.
The Fishermen proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run in all competitions. Given the attacking potential of the two teams, a real football festival is on the horizon at Sincil Bank and we predict that both sides are going to find the net on Matchday 6. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two teams played out a thrilling 2-2 draw.
