  • Lincoln City have lost three of their last five away League One contests.

Imps form flops before long-awaited Hillsborough trip

Lincoln City will face Sheffield Wednesday in the league for the first time in over 40 years on Saturday, but they head to Hillsborough on the back of their worst display of the season.

Michael Appleton’s men turned in an abject display in going down 1-0 at home to Wimbledon on a torrid Tuesday night, creating very little after falling behind to a fourth-minute penalty.

The Imps’ overall away form this season is decent enough to suggest they could trouble the Owls here, but the Dons’ defeat provides evidence to the contrary.

Sheffield Wednesday have drawn their last two games after getting the rub of the green in their win over Bolton earlier this month. They should be doing better than ninth in the standings with some of the names Darren Moore has at his disposal, but only one defeat in their last seven league games is nothing to get too down about.

Owls’ quality can decide close game

We’re taking the Owls to win this at the marginal odds against price because they have more quality than Lincoln at both ends of the pitch. Defensively, they are keeping clean sheets at home and their forward options are among the best in the division.

Our expectation is that the hosts win because of a clinical attack, but we are wary that Moore stated they need to do better at defending set pieces after the last game. Lincoln have scored nine goals in their six away games this season, pointing towards at least one here – hence our score prediction of 2-1 to the Owls.
