Lincoln City vs Sunderland Prediction

Michael Appleton’s men lost on the road the last day. They were done in quite early with two goals, and though the guests did manage to return one, the comeback ended there. The final scoreline was 2-1, in favor of the hosts.

The Black Cats meanwhile, registered a 2-1 win at home, over MK Dons, to keep their unbeaten streak alive.

In addition to this impressive run, they have lost just once this whole campaign, with them remaining invincible in 12 of their former 13 match-ups. They also had a five-game winning run in the midst of this stretch.

On the other hand, the team from Lincolnshire is winless in their previous seven games on the trot and lost six of their last seven, and nine of their prior eleven fixtures. At home, they lost four of their previous five ties and failed to score in their previous three appearances there.

As such, count on the guests to come out on top in style this Saturday, as they take a trip to Sincil Bank.
