Win for Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday are aiming for four consecutive league victories that could get them above Oxford United by the end of this weekend. Wednesday have two more games in hand over the likes of Oxford. Lincoln were forced to make too many defensive mistakes by the high pressing game of Gillingham and there could be more of the same from Wednesday.

Total goals over 2.5

Wednesday come into this game after having just scored five goals. Even though it may be difficult to replicate the same output against Lincoln, the visitors have the potential to capitalise on the numerous errors that Michael Appleton’s team have been making in the last few games. If put under pressure, Lincoln tend to make many defensive errors.

Both teams to score – yes

Despite the strong impressive run put out by Wednesday, the team has kept out the opposition only on one occasion in the last four league encounters. Lincoln were dominated by Gillingham, but Michael Appleton’s team did have some opportunities in the game.

Lincoln vs Sheffield Wednesday: Match Preview and Team News


Michael Appleton is still looking for his first victory against Darren Moore or Sheffield Wednesday. After slipping to 18th place in the table, Lincoln have to quickly recover from the recent string of defeats. They have to do so without Lewis Montsma, who is out with a cruciate ligament problem, and Liam Bridcutt, who has had any surgery.

Sheffield Wednesday

Moore will be confident about getting ahead of Oxford United or even MK Dons in the forthcoming weeks. Wednesday have a couple of games in hand over the key rivals for the automatic promotion spots. Moore will be without Lewis Gibson, who is not 100% fit yet, and Dennis Adeniran because of injuries.
