Huddersfield Town v Lincoln City Betting Tips – EFL Cup, 13th August 19.45pm

Jan Siewert’s Huddersfield Town welcome Danny Cowley and his Lincoln City side to the John Smith’s Stadium this Tuesday for an intriguing EFL Cup fixture. The Terriers were a Premier League club while Lincoln were in EFL League Two last term, but the pair are just one league apart nowadays. With this taking place on their own patch, Town are the odds-on favourites to pick up the win and progress through, but don’t rule out last season’s League Two champions just yet. This promises to be a cracking cup tie in West Yorkshire.

Huddersfield Town News and Form – Terriers to go through?

The Terriers have had a difficult start to their EFL Championship season following relegation from the Premier League. Jan Siewert’s side have failed to win any of their opening two Championship matches, picking up just one point from a possible six along the way.

Huddersfield kicked off their campaign with a disappointing 2-1 home reverse to Derby County. Then last Saturday, Town drew 1-1 with Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road. Karlan Grant scored from the penalty spot for the second game running, but Grant Hall’s late goal rescued a point for Mark Warburton’s Rangers.

Huddersfield will be targeting an instant return to the Premier League, but gaining promotion will certainly be tough task. With so many strong teams participating in this year’s Championship, the Yorkshire club will have their work cut out. At this moment in time, you can get them at 7/1 for promotion.

Huddersfield fell at the first hurdle in the EFL Cup last season, as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium. Can the Terriers go further this time around?

Lincoln City News and Form – Can the Imps cause an upset in midweek?

City have been on a remarkable rise under Danny Cowley over the past few years. The Imps were in the National League in the 2016-17 season, but two promotions since has lifted them into the third tier.

Lincoln were outstanding in League Two last term, winning 50% of their matches to win the division by six points. Cowley’s troops were superb away from Sincil Bank, picking up 12 wins, drawing six times and suffering just five defeats on the road.

Lincoln have also made a stunning start to this campaign. City started with a 2-0 home victory over Accrington Stanley, with Michael O’Connor and John Akinde getting the goals. Last weekend, Lincoln claimed another 2-0 win, this time away at Rotherham United. A Shaun MacDonald own goal put the Imps 1-0 up, with Harry Anderson making it two shortly after half time at the New York Stadium.

Lincoln are riding on the crest of a wave at the moment, and Cowley’s troops are more than capable of causing an EFL Cup upset at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Huddersfield Town v Lincoln City Predictions

Huddersfield Town win: Lincoln City have been flying lately, and the Imps will no doubt have a real go at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday. However, Huddersfield still have a very strong squad, and Siewert’s men should have enough to see off their League One opponents. Put some money on the home side to win and both teams to score at bet365’s very tempting price of 12/5. The Terriers scored first but failed to hold on at QPR last weekend – Town are available at 4/11 to open the scoring in this one
