Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After surving Wycombe at Adams Park, Wycombe Wanderers will look to move closer to automatic promotion berth when they face Lincoln in the League One round 18. The Boro are eyeing their third consecutive league win and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to pick up all three points from Saturday’s encounter. With no fresh injury worries to report, Steve Evans is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Chairboys at the weekend.
The Imps, on the other hand, failed to win the previous three league matches and given their ups and downs on the road, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side. To make things even more complicated for the away team, Ireland defender Paudie O’Connor misses out through suspension. Stevenage failed to beat Lincoln in the previous four meetings between the two clubs, but we believe that the time has come for Steve Evans’ troops to put an end to the negative trend.
Highlighted Player (Jake Taylor):
Jake Taylor is a product of the Reading football academy who plays for Exeter City in the League Two. Taylor spent his youth career at Reading, and he continued wearing the blue and white shirt at senior level.
After scoring two goals in 31 appearances with the Royals in the league, the English footballer spent several seasons on loan at the likes of Aldershot Town, Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Leyton Orient, and Motherwell. In 2016 Jake Taylor returned to Exeter City, signing a permanent deal with the St James Park outfit.
Despite being born in Ascot, England, on December 1, 1991, Taylor represents Wales on the international stage. He has ten caps with the Wales U21 team, and he made his debut with the Dragons at the senior level in a 2-1 win over Cyprus on October 13, 2014. His primary position is central midfielder.
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.
