Contrasting ambitions

Promotion chasing Oxford United travel to Sincil Bank for their clash with relegation-threatened Lincoln City on Saturday.

Hosts Lincoln were sat in 12th position in the table after 15 matchdays, however, a return of just three points from their last seven league matches has seen The Imps slide down the table and they now languish in 21st place. Michael Appleton’s men last played on Boxing Day, due to a couple of their matches being postponed due to COVID-19. If they want to avoid the drop, they’ll need to improve in the final third and also on home soil as they’ve won just two league matches at home this campaign.

Oxford United come into this one with the chance to make it seven away games on the trot without tasting defeat. They also have an outside chance of challenging for automatic promotion as they sit just six points off of second place in the table. They’ve suffered just a single defeat across their previous 12 league games and will feel confident of claiming another three points to aid their promotion charge.

Goals the call at LNER stadium

Lincoln City are in a rut, are conceding goals for fun and with the visitors away games averaging 2.5 goals per game, we’re expecting a goal heavy match here. We also think Oxford United will claim a 2-1 victory.
