Lincoln City Prediction – Can Lincoln City start climbing up table?

It’s been a tough start to Michael Appleton’s tenure with Lincoln City who he joined at the end of September, overseeing a tough set of fixtures which saw Lincoln come up against the likes of Oxford United, Blackpool, Sunderland and Peterborough United.

This difficult schedule resulted in 3 defeats and 1 win as Lincoln succumbed to Oxford United 6-0, Blackpool 2-1 and Peterborough United 2-0 although the latter two results were away from home. In addition, Lincoln did register all three points in a solid 2-0 home win against Sunderland, so The Imps will no doubt be keen to build upon that result when they take on Shrewsbury Town on Friday night.

Lincoln City currently occupy a mid-table position in League One as they sit in 12th place but the positive thing for the hosts is that 4 of their 5 wins to date overall have been recorded on home turf at Sincil Bank within an overall record of 4-0-2 10/7.

This should therefore give Lincoln confidence that they can get something from this clash against Shrewsbury Town while forwards Walker (7 goals) and Akinde (2 goals) form perhaps one of the most potent partnerships in the division.

Shrewsbury Town Prediction – Can Shrewsbury gain back-to-back wins on road?

Shrewsbury Town bounced back from a recent heavy 3-0 defeat at home to Fleetwood Town a couple of weeks ago when they registered a 1-0 win away from home at 18th placed Tranmere Rovers and they hit the road again this Friday night, looking to capture a second away win on the trot at Lincoln City.

The Shrews have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches overall in the third tier which was the aforementioned loss to Fleetwood Town, but recent wins against second from bottom club, Southend United and Tranmere Rovers have maintained Shrewsbury’s mid-table position in League One.

With just 4 wins out of their last 15 matches overall though in League One, the visitors are by no means guaranteed of success at Sincil Bank this Friday night, while their results away from home have produced a mixed return to date on their travels.

An away record of 2-2-2 5/7 includes an earlier win away at fourth from bottom club, Accrington Stanley but defeats at MK Dons and Ipswich Town perhaps show their vulnerability on their travels.


Key-Facts – Lincoln City v Shrewsbury Town

  • Lincoln City have won 4 of their first 6 matches at home in League One
  • Shrewsbury have won just 4 out of their last 15 matches overall in League One
  • Shrewsbury haven’t beaten a top half side away from home to date this term


Betting Tips Verdict

Lincoln City with home advantage should hold the edge over an inconsistent Shrewsbury Town outfit.
