Lincoln City vs Blackpool Prediction

Lincoln City thrashed Bolton with a whopping 5-1 scorecard in their last clash at home. The hosts were just too hot to handle in that latter matchup, forcing their foes to settle for no more than a consolation goal.

As of now, the home team have stumbled just once in their past five League One games, and have garnered ten points from a possible fifteen.

On the other hand, Blackpool have been struggling to get things going as of late. Disappointingly, they are without a win in their past seven fixtures in all competitions.

Furthermore, the guests have been at the losing end in two of their last three matchups in the third division. It is also worth mentioning that Blackpool have been even more dismal on the road this season.

Miserably, the visitors have not had a taste of success away from home since their flash in the pan win over Doncaster, way back in September. In sharp contrast, Lincoln City have been picking up back to back wins in each of their previous four matchups here.

Considering that the hosts are also unbeaten in their past two meetings with this foe at home, Blackpool have little or no chance of coming out on top in this one.

Be that as it may, the visitors have shared the spoils eight times on the road this term, which is the joint-most by any side in the cluster. Given that it was also the guests who secured the bragging rights in the reverse fixture of this clash, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.

Furthermore, despite failing to pick up a win more than twice away from home, it needs saying that Blackpool have not gone down without a fight. They have found the back of the net in each of their previous four outings. And have also scored fourteen goals from their trips on the road so far as well.

To top it off, the hosts have conceded a goal or more in all of their last four fixtures here. As such, count on Blackpool to have their names on the scoresheet along with Lincoln City, this Saturday.
