Tip Reasoning

  • Lincoln have failed to score in three league games, and also lost 1-0 to fourth-tier Hartlepool in FA Cup action on Saturday.
  • Crewe are bottom of League One, and averaging less than one goal per league game.
  • Crewe have won just twice in 20 league games, and only scored multiple goals on four occasions.

Crewe Struggling for Results, Lincoln Struggling for Goals

Already seven points from safety at the foot of League One, and with just two wins from 20 league outings this campaign, Crewe Alexandra are in deep trouble. David Artell’s team earned a valuable win over fellow strugglers Gillingham in their last home game, but had gone ten without a win prior to that.

Crewe have only kept two clean sheets all season (which correspond to their only wins), conceding 36 goals in 20 games, but will be just as worried by their attacking record, averaging less than a goal per game in League One, and only scoring two or more goals on four occasions.

Lincoln, meanwhile, have gone three league games without scoring, and were dumped out of the FA Cup by league two strugglers Hartlepool on Saturday. Having impressed en route to finishing fifth last term, Michael Appleton has voiced his frustration at Lincoln’s lack of goals in recent weeks, and their last league win came at the tail end of October, at promotion-chasing Wigan.

Under 2.5 the Best Bet?

With Lincoln netting just 20 in 19 this term, and their hosts scoring just 17 in 20, I’m not expecting too much in the way of entertainment from this meeting. Under 2.5 match goals seems the smart play, given Lincoln’s barren run and Crewe’s desperate need to grind out a result.

A 1-1 draw may be a solid correct score prediction, for the same reasons.
