Imps struggling to find their form

Lincoln are sat down in the bottom half of the League One table, floundering along on a three-match losing streak. They had actually been in some very good form prior to that.

It was a run of W4 D1 L1 from them in the league before tanking to three straight-losses. Interestingly, each of the wins that sequence were on home soil at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln had won five straight home games before crashing to a 2-0 loss against Portsmouth in their last home fixture. Home and away, Lincoln have only scored one goal in their last three league games now.

The overall home form that they have put on the board is a superb W9 D1 L3. Lincoln have returned an average of 1.85 goals per game at Sincil Bank this season.

Our betting prediction:
Rotherham 1 Goal Winning Margin

(odds taken 21:14 GMT, Thursday 6th February)

In total there has been a clean sheet from then in 54% of their home games. So the statistics actually suggest that they can push towards a positive result in this difficult game.

Six of the nine home wins that Lincoln have recorded this season have been by a margin of at least two goals and they have been leading at the halftime break in 6 of 13 home games as well.


Millers can handle themselves away from home

League leaders Rotherham are probably not going to get an easy game at Sincil Bank. Lincoln has been superb at home and have only just gone off the boil.

But the timing could be right for the Millers to pay another visit there. They have recent form there as well. Rotherham will be looking to win their fifth straight game at Lincoln in the league.

Their last visit there was in 2011 when they scored a 6-0 success. Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings in all competitions. The current form of Rotherham is very good.

They have won seven of their last eight League One fixtures. Rotherham suffered a loss at Peterborough at the end of January, but have snapped straight back to win their last two.
