Ipswich Town vs Lincoln City Match Preview

These clubs meet for the fourth time this term with honours even so far, but Ipswich are fancied to gain the upper hand by winning at Portman Road.

It’s one victory apiece and a draw up to now, with Lincoln securing a home replay in the FA Cup first round but then losing it to a last-minute Alan Judge goal. However, the Imps gained revenge at Sincil Bank between Christmas and New Year in a 5-3 thriller.

Although Ipswich failed in that cup tie to beat Lincoln at their Suffolk base, this time it is expected to be different with important League One points up for grabs.

That’s partly because no club in the English third tier this season has a more disparate record at home and away than Lincoln, who have collected 28 points on their own pitch compared to just nine on the road. Michael Appleton’s team lose a lot of games on their travels (see stats above).

Ipswich, meanwhile, are right in the thick of a wide-open chase for automatic promotion. They have recently emerged from a 12-match winless run in all competitions by collecting seven points from the last nine available.

Paul Lambert, manager of the Tractor Boys, was recently rewarded with a new five-year contract and he is backed to show why Ipswich see him as the coach to guide their future by engineering another win against Lincoln.
