Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Lincoln City will be looking to keep their 100% record in the 2019/2020 League One season intact when they welcome Southend United at their Sincil Bank. The Imps have been in a splendid form at the start of the season and seeing that the Blues suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Coventry City and Blackpool in the first two league games, home win should be considered.
Lincoln City recorded a 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley in their first home game of the season, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Imps. Southend United experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Blackpool in front of home fans and they are unlikely to spoil Lincoln City’s party at Sincil Bank. You should know that the two teams meet for the first time since 2011 in the League One.
