Cheltenham Town vs Lincoln City Tips and Prediction
Under Michael Duff’s management, Cheltenham easily avoided relegation after being promoted from League Two, but once the former Burnley defender left for Barnsley in the summer.
Wade Elliott, Duff’s former coach, was picked to take over as his permanent manager, and in his first management position, the 44-year-old has succeeded above expectations to lead the Robins to being five points clear of safety going into this weekend’s test against Lincoln.
However, that distance may have been far larger if they hadn’t lost to Forest Green Rovers, who are currently in the first relegation position, after Myles Peart-injury-time Harris’s goal gave them victory the last time out.
Elliott, who had won two straight games before traveling to Nailsworth, will take the loss in stride, but he will be hoping for much more from his squad on the offensive end on Saturday, especially given that no team in League One has scored fewer goals than his thus far.
Under former Liverpool defender Mark Kennedy, who took over for Michael Appleton as manager of the Imps in May of last year, Lincoln have not exactly been goal-hungry themselves.
Their tie against Wycombe Wanderers last weekend was their eighth stalemate in 10 home games in League One this season, but they still have an impressive unblemished home record given that they won their other two games at Sincil Bank.
They have been much more inconsistent away from home, having stunned league leaders Ipswich Town at Portman Road before falling to teams like Shrewsbury and Port Vale.
As a result, Kennedy will be rooting for a win on Saturday, especially since avoiding defeat would allow them to climb into the top half of the standings. The 46-year-old will, however, be all too aware that it will probably be a game of razor-thin margins.
We anticipate a lot cageier contest in League One on Saturday despite both clubs scoring four goals in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday.
This season, none of these teams has been very strong offensively, so a goalless draw is not something we would be shocked to see happen. This season, none of these teams has been very strong offensively, so a goalless draw is not something we would be shocked to see happen.
