Two teams who are in great form will face each other at Lincoln city as the hosts welcome Mansfield.
The Imps are 2nd in the table after 18 rounds completed. With a game in hand they are just a point short of the top spot. They are the top scorers in the league along with Bury as both the teams have found 32 goals already. Lincoln has also been disciplined at the back conceding only 15 goals.
In their previous 6 games from all competitions they lost and won twice. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of those 6 games. The Imps lost the matches in which they failed to hit the target.
At home fixtures in the league, they are unbeaten in 5 games on the trot. This includes 3 wins of which the best was against the toppers-Dons. Manager Danny Cowley has to make sure his team is not affected by the recent losses before coming to this match.
Mansfield are unbeaten in 12 matches on a row, in all competitions. This pretty much explain why they are 5th in the league. They have lost only once but has 10 draws in their 18 games. Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 4 of their last 6 matches.
They also enjoy a 6 game unbeaten streak in their away games, including 2 wins. The final score in 3 of those 5 matches had over 2.5 goals in total. But they have not played an away match against any teams in the top 5 until now. So this is their first real challenge as far as away games are concerned.
The competition is getting tighter and every single point is crucial for all teams at the top. As only 3 teams will be directly promoted to League One, this game will make a difference in the future of both the sides.

Lincoln vs Mansfield: Prediction
Both the sides are in good scoring form. The hosts are the top scorers in the league with 32 goals and the away side has found the net 26 times. In the last 5 matches that the Imps played at home, both the teams scored. The visitors have also scored in 5 away games on the trot. So we can bet on both the teams to score with1.90 odd.
When we look at the recent h2h stats at this ground, the visitors are a class apart for the hosts. But the form that Lincoln are showing this year is promising. Although that’s the case, the hosts will be under pressure. So I think, in the light of their 12 matches unbeaten run, the away side will be likely to remain unbeaten in this game. So we can bet on a Double Chance of either the match to draw or the visitors to win with 1.80 odd.
