Tip Reasoning

A quick glance at the League Two table and you will realise that Lincoln City have an excellent opportunity to claim a Christmas number one of their own, as victory this weekend will see them spend Christmas day on top of League Two and in pole position for the title. If the Imps are to accomplish this aim then they are going to have to see off a Newport County side who have already proven themselves to be fearless against the division’s leading sides this season.

Lincoln City are just a point ahead of title rivals MK Dons and they will know that they cannot afford any slip ups as they bid to win promotion to England’s third tier and go up as champions. Although the Imps have been excellent through the first half of the season, their form has dipped, but back to back victories in their last two league matches has rebuilt their confidence and they seem to be back on track. If they are going to go on and claim the title, then they will have to address their seeming inability to keep a clean sheet on home soil as this has seen them drop points on too many occasions.

Sixth-placed Newport County could move to within six points of table-topping Lincoln City if they can pick up a win at Sincil Bank. A 4-0 victory over Wrexham in the FA Cup set Newport County up for the visit of then League Two leaders MK Dons to Rodney Parade, but their momentum was stunted as the clash was postponed due to the bad weather. The Welshmen may not have the eyes of the footballing world on them but they should not be underestimated in this clash as they have frequently upset the odds and claimed victories when most people had written them off.

The visitors may be coming into this match on the back of an extended rest, but that time off the pitch can sometimes take players away from their top form. Given that Lincoln are going toe-to-toe with MK Dons for top spot, they know that they cannot afford to slip up this weekend and we think that they should prove too strong for their opponents and we are backing them to claim all three points for our tip.
