Lincoln City Match Preview

10 January 2020

Marcus Braddock looks ahead to the weekend's game with Lincoln City

This Saturday, Lincoln City make the trip to Montgomery Waters Meadow for their 24th and our 23rd Skybet League One game of the season. Lincoln's start to the season was rather good with three successive wins in League One and one in the Carabao cup away to Huddersfield. After that, they went into a steep decline with just three wins in their next 20 games. The reason for the decline seems to be losing the Cowley brothers to Huddersfield in September but new manager Michael Appleton looks to have wrestled the team back to winning ways with five wins in their last ten games.

Stats

Lincoln are the 9th best team in League One with 12 points over the last eight games.

In away games, the 15 minutes after half time tend to be the best for the Imps with three goals scored and none conceded all season.

Seventy-five percent of Lincoln's away goals conceded were scored in the first half.

The Imps have conceded an average of 1.39 away goals and scored an average of 0.8.

Referee

Andy Hains from Tyne and Wear. Games this season: 25. Yellow cards: 66. Red cards: 7.

Squad News

Lincoln's Michael Bostwick has been ruled out for up to eight weeks with a calf injury. There seems to be an influx of new players amongst the Lincoln ranks so changes may be made.

Sam Ricketts has no new injury worries.

Summary

Lincoln may have lost more games than any other team in League One but Michael Appleton seems to be turning things around and has signed some useful players in the last few days. That means there are a couple of relatively unknown quantities that could act as wild cards if given the opportunity.

After a run of four winless games, Sam Ricketts team will be itching to make amends with a positive result in front of the home supporters. If we're going to make an impact on the top ten and beyond, we really need to win our home games and to do that we're going to need to improve on the performance at Doncaster.

COYB!!! Marcus

Shrewsbury Town welcomed Lincoln City to the Montgomery Waters Meadow this afternoon for another Sky Bet League One fixture.

Ollie Norburn’s first-half penalty initially put Salop in the lead, but that goal was outdone by a penalty for the opposition striker, Tyler Walker.

Team News: Sam Ricketts made a number of changes to the line-up for this afternoon’s fixture against Lincoln City. Most notably, Callum Lang replaced Daniel Udoh and Ryan Sears replaced Donald Love – both making their first starts since returning from injury. Dave Edwards and Shaun Whalley were also included in the starting 11 ahead of Sean Goss and Ryan Giles.

First Half:

Town’s afternoon against The Imps began as tightly as the league table would suggest. Lincoln and Town both battled for the ball in the middle of the park and continually looked to spark attacks. Ollie Norburn and Shaun Whalley were the early bright sparks for Sam Ricketts’ men.

Max O’Leary was called into action with 30 minutes on the clock. Lincoln’s top goal scorer, Tyler Walker, let off a venomous shot towards goal but O’Leary managed to get a strong hand to the ball to parry over the bar.

Town were awarded a penalty in the 34th minute as Ethan Ebanks-Landell was brought to the ground whilst dribbling with the ball. Norburn stepped up for Salop and fired a powerful effort into the bottom left corner to give his team the lead.

Town had the away side on the ropes for the last few minutes in the first period. After sustained pressure, Ro-Shaun Williams had a great chance to double the lead for Town, but his header from just inside the box went narrowly wide.

The half came to a positive end for The Shrews. Norburn’s converted penalty was the difference between the two sides.

Second Half:

The second-half started in disappointment for Town as they away side were awarded a penalty due to an Omar Beckles foul. Walker stepped up for The Imps and dispatched an effort right into the corner – giving O’Leary no chance.

As The Imps were pushing for a goal, Town were let off the hook in the 60th minute. The away side managed to have two shots at goal in quick succession – luckily for Town, each effort bounced off the crossbar.

Scott Golbourne was given a yellow card by referee Andy Haines for a foul near the halfway mark in the 68th minute.

As the 90 minutes were ticking away, Norburn was also given a yellow card for a foul in the middle of the park.

Town were doing well in the middle of the park, and positive play allowed The Shrews to fire balls into the box. Despite getting into good positions, the away side were proving hard to breakdown.

The game came to an end with each team winning a point, despite an additional five minutes added on by the referee.
