Lincoln City Preview – Will the Imps secure a fourth win in five?

Lincoln City finished fifth last term and were hoping to be in the promotion mix once again this year. However, things have not quite gone to plan for Michael Appleton and his men. Ahead of this round of fixtures, the Imps languish in 16th position with just 31 points to their name.

Lincoln have shown a big improvement of late, though, collecting nine points from the last 12 on offer. Since the turn of the year, City have beaten the likes Oxford United, Sunderland and Plymouth Argyle.

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1424 GMT, Friday 28 January)

With some winnable games on the horizon, Lincoln would love to keep their momentum going with three points on home turf at the weekend. The hosts are the bookies’ favourites at 23/20.

Burton Albion Preview – Can the Brewers get back on track?

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Burton Albion have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. The Brewers are in mid-table after ten wins, 11 defeats and six draws from 27 League One matches. They are ten points away from the play-offs.

Burton have picked up of late, losing just one league fixture in 2022. After wins over Crewe Alexandra and Gillingham, and draws with Cheltenham Town and Wimbledon, Burton suffered their first defeat since early December in midweek, losing 1-0 to MK Dons at the Pirelli Stadium.
