Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Weston Homes Stadium pits together Peterborough and Lincoln, the two teams who defeated Sheffield Wednesday and Oxford United respectively at the weekend. The Posh did remarkably well to beat the promotion-chasing Owls 2-0, with the team establishing themselves as one of the candidates for promotion.
A man to watch in the home team will be No. 9 Jonson Clarke-Harris, who has already netted three goals this season, while all Dan Butler, Oliver Norburn, and Harvey Cartwright have been struggling with injuries of late. The Imps, on the other hand, aim to build on the triumph over the Yellows, but beating Peterborough on the road is easier said than done. Since Lincoln are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that the Posh will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Matchday 5. The Imps No. 10 Teddy Bishop is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (David Cornell):
Born in Waunarlwydd, Wales on March 28, 1991, David Cornell is a goalkeeper who plays for Northampton Town in the League Two. The 180-cm tall shot-stopper is a product of the Swansea City football school, but he did not make any appearances for the Swans at senior level.
Cornell played for the likes of Port Talbot Town, Hereford United, St. Mirren, and Portsmouth on loan before signing a permanent contract with Oldham Athletic in the 2015/2016 season. In the summer of 2016, he joined Northampton Town on a two-year deal.
Speaking of his international career, David Cornell has three caps with the Wales U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. The Northampton Town goalkeeper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. He has a contract with the Cobblers until June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Lincoln):
Lincoln City are one of the oldest clubs competing in the League One as they were founded back in 1884. Lincoln City FC were established as an amateur association, but they turned professional in the 1891/1892 season.
Back then they played at John O’Gaunts stadium, but nowadays Sincil Bank is the club’s home ground. Sincil Bank was opened in 1895, holding up to 10,120 people. The club’s main colours are red, white and black, whilst the Imps wear green shirts and white shorts when playing on the road. Lincoln City and Mansfield Town are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals, but the Limps had some sort of local rivalry with Peterborough United, Hull City and York City as well.
Albert Iremonger (42 years and 312 days) is the oldest footballer to have played for the club, whilst Shane Nicholson (16 years and 112 days) is the youngest one. Lincoln City recorded a thrilling 9-1 victory over then local rivals Sleaford in their first game.
