      Tip Reasoning

      It wasn’t long ago that Bury were treading water around mid-table, though they’ve taken several steps forward in recent months, so much so that there’s only one team above them in the table. The boys from Gigg Lane have won each of their last four league matches, during which time they’ve looked menacing in the final third. Lincoln are no easy team to face, but the Shakers’ recent form will have them feeling confident ahead of Saturday’s clash.

      If there’s a team in League Two to fear right now, then it probably is Bury. Ryan Lowe’s men have made massive strides in recent weeks and are now very tough to face. They’re hurting teams with the ball, are clinical in front of goal and are giving little away in the defensive third.

      What’s more, Bury’s recent efforts at home have been very encouraging, especially from an attacking point of view. The Shakers have scored two or more in each of their last six at home and have scored a staggering total of 19 goals during that time. They’ve only kept two clean sheets in those six, but they’ve made a habit of creating more than they give away, so there’s little to worry about. Lincoln are a very good side, but with the way things have gone of late, the hosts aren’t likely to play with any fear.

      Lincoln will go to Gigg Lane unbeaten in five, three of which they’ve won, while they’re coming off the back of a commanding away win against Yeovil on Tuesday night. On that occasion, Lincoln quickly established control; they created plenty and barely gave their opponents a sniff. Bury are harder to face than Yeovil, make no mistake about that, but such an effort will have left Danny Cowley’s men feeling confident.

      It doesn’t take much to work out that both Bury and Lincoln are very good going forward. The Shakers are currently League One’s highest scorers, while Saturday’s visitors aren’t far behind in second. Between them, they’ve netted 105 league goals this season, which is an average of 3.38 per game. Keeping this in mind, coupled with the fact that both rank highly in terms of expected goals for, it’s easy to feel that ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ is a tad overpriced at present. Bury have made a habit of being involved in high-scoring encounters at home, while neither side is short of attacking quality, so punters cannot be put off siding with goals ahead of what should be an excellent game at Gigg Lane on Saturday evening.
