The Big Preview: Lincoln City (A)

A Trip To The Imps Awaits On Saturday

17 January 2020

Blackpool travel to Lincoln City on Saturday, looking for an all-important return to winning ways.

The Seasiders come into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Championship side Reading in an Emirates FA Cup Third Round Replay, with this match being the first league game for Simon Grayson’s men since New Years Day.

Lincoln, meanwhile, secured an emphatic 5-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers in their last outing. The Imps have impressed in recent weeks by winning three of their last five matches.

Lincoln visited Bloomfield Road back in September, with Blackpool securing the three points thanks to a 2-1 victory.

Just two goals separate the two sides heading into the match, with both tied on 34 points. The Seasiders, however, have two games in hand over Saturday’s hosts.

Team News:

There could be a couple for debuts for Simon Grayson’s side. Jordan Thorniley and Marc Bola were involved in a reserves match during the week to gain valuable game time to build their match fitness. Gary Madine, who was signed late on Thursday evening, could also be involved. Ryan Edwards is likely to miss out following an injection on his ankle.

For Lincoln, Club captain Lee Frecklington remains sidelined.

The Referee:

Ollie Yates will be the man in the middle for the match.
