Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET

The hosts might be looking to stay in League One for another year. If they play their cards right they could achieve that. But they will have to end a losing streak as soon as possible.

The Brewers will be looking to take revenge for the defeat in the reverse leg. They have produced some quality performance s in recent weeks which may boost their fight for promotion.

Lincoln City vs Burton Albion: Prediction

Both sides are in good scoring form this league season. Burton has netted 46 goals in their 33 matches and Lincoln found the net 41 times. Even though the hosts have failed to score in recent matches, they have hope as the traveling side has conceded 2 or more goals in their recent away games. Albion has 5 away games which had over 3.5 goals on the trot. They have conceded 18 goals in their last 7 outings.

Burton still has a small chance to get into a promotion spot. So they may use attacking tactics against a side for whom wins are a rarity. So I am backing this game to have lots of goals with both sides scoring them.
