Huddersfield Town vs Lincoln City Match Preview
Lincoln City have made a terrific start to their League One campaign and consequently, the Carabao Cup may not yield as much motivation for them as for Huddersfield.
The Imps have been one of the big success stories of recent years in English football, rising from the National League to the third tier and reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals under manager Danny Cowley – who is clearly not ready to settle for what the club have achieved.
Cowley has become one of the most sought-after young coaches around and evidently has designs on the Championship, judging by the way his Lincoln side have started this season with back-to-back 2-0 wins at home to Accrington and, impressively, away to Rotherham.
Those results suggest another promotion is distinctly possible for Lincoln and therefore you suspect Saturday’s match at home to a struggling Southend side will be a bigger priority than this cup tie, with key players likely to be rested by Cowley and his assistant/brother Nicky.
In contrast, Huddersfield desperately need a victory. They were edged out 2-1 at home by Derby in their Championship opener and then drew 1-1 at QPR on Saturday and having triumphed only once since November in a dreadful Premier League relegation campaign, they simply need to go all out for a win here to give their confidence a much-needed boost.
Terriers boss Jan Siewert has to pick a team capable of beating Lincoln or questions will be asked, and Huddersfield are backed to scrape through in 90 minutes.
