Competition: League One
Market: Lincoln City win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to open the New Year by extending their buffer at the top of the League One table, Lincoln will make the trip to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while AFC Wimbledon might have managed to find a brief bounce when opening November, the Wombles have come crashing back down to earth. Firmly in the midst of a worrying run of form and continuing to freefall down the League One table, Glyn Hodges’ men put in another worrying display earlier in the week. Hit with what turned into a deserved 2-0 defeat away at Oxford on Boxing Day, Wimbledon have collected just a single point from their last five third-tier appearances, a run that stems back to December 2nd. With their recent issues highlighted by back-to-back 4-2 and 5-2 defeats against Bristol Rovers and Charlton, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts have been hit with back-to-back losses on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Lincoln might have been worried by their back-to-back defeats against Sunderland and Shrewsbury a fortnight ago, the Imps have bounced back in impressive fashion. Still tipped by many across League One in the promotion chase, Michael Appleton’s men hold a three-point buffer at the top of the table when opening the New Year. Last seen earlier in the week when putting on a thumping display at home against Burton, the former Portsmouth boss saw his side land a 5-1 win in Lincolnshire and they have also gained a reputation for their continued success on the road. Picking up a 4-0 win against Northampton in their last away fixture, Lincoln have won each of their last three League One contests on the road and there is no doubt that they will be hugely confident of extending on that tally this weekend.
Bet: Lincoln 7/10 to beat AFC Wimbledon in Saturday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
