Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fratton Park will host Tuesday’s football game between Portsmouth and Lincoln, the two promotion-chasing sides. Portsmouth aim to bounce back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Hull City, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Lincoln. Both George Byers and Harwey Whites are eyeing their full debuts against the Imps. Lincoln, on the other hand, have been in a fine form in 2021, with the team recording four wins in the previous five league fixtures.
Michael Appleton’s troops defeated Northampton in their last league match, and a win over Portsmouth could see them regain top position in the standings. However, a close encounter is on the cards at Fratton Park, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Michael Appleton has no fresh selection worries, and he is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that defeated the Cobblers at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Ellis Harrison):
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.
