Lincoln City vs Mansfield Town Match Prediction

By William Hall

Lincoln City welcome Manfield Town to the Sincil Bank Stadium this weekend and with both sides in decent form, it promises to be a thriller. Lincoln go into this one of he back of a tight 1-0 win away to struggling Forest Green which could have gone either way. But a goal from Harry Anderson in the 65th minute gave Lincoln all three points. That win took them to four wins in five games, with the other ending a draw. Mansfield played out a bore draw last time out at home to Wycombe Wanderers which before the game they may have taken but being the better team during the 90 minutes, they would have wanted to get all three points. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Lincoln are unbeaten in their first three games at home this season but have had two draws in that time showing they are struggling to see off teams. However, in all competitions, the side have had four wins and a draw in the last five meaning the winning mentality will be starting to build within the squad and club. A little interesting fact about this game is that the last three times these two have met, they away team has come out on top every time. Three of Lincolns last five matches have gone over 2.5 match goals which could mean we are in for some more this weekend.

It is simular for Mansfield who have seen over 2.5 goals come in during three of their last five away matches but three of them have also ended as draws which could easily happen again this weekend with both teams having many in recent times. With both sides separated by just two points at this stage of the season, this game is crucial.

Lincoln City Preview

As mentioned, Lincoln come into this one on great form in all competitions but have only managed one win at home in League Two this season. They will want to increase that record this weekend and seem to have a good chance to make that happen. Centre-forward Matt Green is the sides biggest threat this season, with two goals to his name already. His pace, power and strength will make it hard for opponents to stop him. It's been a great start to life in the football league for Lincoln Town, but they will need to keep this good form going and get the points on the board early in case they go through a bad patch.

Lincoln City Team News

Lincoln will have a full strength squad to play Mansfield this weekend.

Mansfield Town Preview

Although Mansfield don't tend to win many away from home, they certainly make it hard for opponents to dominate and beat them. With three draws in the last four away matches, it shows they are not happy to settle for defeats and will keep the pressure on until the end. That showed in the last match as they came from behind to Carlisle to draw 1-1 and take a point back to Mansfield. If they were to go behind again this weekend, do not panic as they do tend to come from a losing position more times than not.
