Lincoln City vs Yeovil Town Prediction & Match Preview

Lincoln City vs Yeovil Town
English League Two
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Sincil Bank Stadium (Lincoln).

Lincoln City were in a sort of crisis with a streak of four consecutive draws, but they took to have returned to the old habits winning two and drawing one of past three league affairs. The Imps are thus two points clear off second-placed Bury at the top of the ladder and they have a game in hand on them as well. It means a win in Friday’s home fixture against bottom-half Yeovil Town would send them five points off their main title challengers. Danny Cowley and his men will not need bigger motivation to give their best on the occasion.

Team’s top scorer John Akinde was the man who made the difference six days ago when his brace inspired a 1-2 victory over 7th-placed Forest Green Rovers away at The New Lawn. It was a massive confidence-boosting victory against play-offs contenders.

Lincoln City vs Yeovil Town: Head-to-head

Lincoln City vs Yeovil Town: Prediction

Yeovil Town took advantage of the easier schedule to pick up super important back-to-back wins over fellow strugglers Cambridge United and Morecambe. They thus put themselves six points above the red zone line and can travel to Sincil Bank Stadium pressure-free.

The hosts obviously remain heavy favourites to claim the spoils and make it three wins and a draw in last four league games. The Imps won 9, drew 7 and lost just 1 of 17 home matches so far in the season. They shipped just 18 goals in the process.

Yeovil Town lost four on the spin on the road failing to score more than one goal along the way. The home win is a huge banker at the odds of 1.53.
