Lincoln City vs Burton Albion Match Analysis & Prediction
25/04/2023 9:45 pm
Lincoln City will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches when they host Burton Albion at the LNER Stadium for Tuesday’s League One contest.
Meanwhile, the visitors will be hoping to pick up a point that would secure their spot in League for another season.
Lincoln are well set to secure a top-half finish in the third tier after winning four and drawing one of their previous five games.
The Imps claimed a 2-0 away victory over Wycombe Wanderers in their most recent game, with goals from Dylan Duffy and Lasse Sorensen securing all three points.
With three matches remaining, Mark Kennedy’s side are sitting in a respectable 10th place, and the Lincoln manager will be keen for his side to carry their unbeaten run into the summer break.
After losing just one of their 21 home league matches this season, the Imps will be confident that they can pick up at least a point against Burton.
Since claiming an impressive 3-2 victory over promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday, Burton have picked up just one point from matches against playoff hopefuls Bolton Wanderers and Derby County.
Dino Maamria’s side, who occupy 18th place, know that they only need a point from their final four matches to secure their League One status.
The Brewers have struggled defensively during the 2022-23 campaign, conceding 78 goals in 42 matches, with only basement side Forest Green Rovers having let in more.
Burton may be hopeful of producing a strong defensive performance on Tuesday after keeping a clean sheet in their reverse fixture with Lincoln, where they claimed a comfortable 3-0 victory.
Lincoln City vs. Burton Albion Head to head
In the 11 previous meetings between these two teams, they have each claimed five victories while they have drawn once, scoring 15 goals apiece in the process.
