Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wednesday’s football game at Sincil Bank pits together Lincoln City and Peterborough United. The Imps produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, with the team beating promotion-chasing Ipswich Town 5-3 in front of home fans. Tyle Walker scored a brace in the triumph over the Tractor Boys, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
You should bear in mind that Lincoln City are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground in the League One. The Posh, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Rotherham United. Seeing that the visitors will be without suspended defender Frankie Kent against Lincoln City, we are tempted to put our money on Michael Appleton’s troops. In the first half of the season, Peterborough United defeated Lincoln City 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Lee Frecklington):
Lee Frecklington is an English footballer who started his youth career at Lincoln City. He was making progress day by day in Lincoln’s youth and the Lincoln owners decided to count on him for the 2003/2004 season. The midfielder scored 21 goals in 124 appearances for the club and in 2013 he signed a deal with Rotherham United following a successful loan spell with the New York Stadium outfit.
Lee Frecklington has established himself as a first-team regular at Rotherham United and he scored five goals in 27 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Despite being born in Lincoln, England, Frecklington played for Republic of Ireland B in a friendly game against Scotland in 2006. He is eligible to play for the Boys in Green as his maternal grandparents were born in Northern Ireland.
The Rotherham United midfielder won the League One play-offs with the Millers in the 2013/2014 campaign. He used to play for the likes of Stamford, Lincoln United and Peterborough United in the past as well.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
