Tip Reasoning

We are now exactly half way through the League Two season and sides have a firm understanding of the areas in which they need to improve if they are to accomplish the goals set out for them at the start of the campaign. this weekend the League Two leaders, Lincoln City, make the trip to face off against a Cambridge United side who know that three points will go a long way to helping them secure their Football League status for another season.

The hosts will be nervously looking over their shoulder as they find themselves just three points above the drop zone and with the two sides below them starting to build up some momentum, they know that they need another win this weekend to ensure they maintain that cushion. The U’s will have a bit of confidence, however, as they saw off an out of form Crawley Town side on Boxing Day and that 2-1 victory means that they are now undefeated in their last five home league matches.

Making the trip to the Abbey Stadium is a Lincoln City side who may be at the opposite end of the division, but after defeat on Boxing Day they go into this match with a point to prove. The Imps were widely expected to take all three points against Crewe and were thankful that both of their title rivals also slipped up. Despite that defeat, the visitors have one of the best away records in the division but they know that if they are to continue their challenge for the title, then they are going to have to improve on a record which has seen both teams score in nine of their previous 11 outings.

One look at the league table would suggest that there is only one winner in this fixture and, whilst we believe Lincoln will ultimately emerge victorious, the recent home record of Cambridge means that it is a risky bet. Given that the hosts are scrapping for every point they can and have been impressive on home soil and the fact that Lincoln have seen both teams score in so many outings of late, we believe that backing both teams scoring is the way to go.
