The Imps made a great start to the season before losing manager Danny Cowley to Huddersfield, and since then they have gone off the boil. They’re down in 17th place and struggling. The only win they’ve got to show from their last seven matches is a 3-0 victory in the EFL Trophy against Rotherham United. That makes the draw with Ipswich even more impressive but the Tractor Boys are focusing on getting promotion back to the Championship.
Ipswich didn’t play at the weekend so they’ve only had one match since the first tie between these sides, and it ended in a 1-0 defeat away to Colchester in the EFL Cup. There were 27 shots on goal in the first tie so this could be another open match tonight, with Ipswich desperate to avoid extra-time ahead of a home match with Blackpool on Saturday.
I fancy Ipswich to edge this game and book their place in round 2, where Coventry City await. They have been great on the whole so far this season and have two games in hand on leaders Wycombe in League One, trailing them by just three points. I’m predicting a close match tonight, with Ipswich just edging things in normal time.
Lincoln have now kept a clean sheet in their last three home matches and this suggests they are starting to turn a corner after a torrid run. That run included a 2-0 win over Sunderland and 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury Town. Ipswich have generally been very good away from home too and have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven matches on the road in League One. With those stats in mind, this looks like a good match to add to your over/under 2.5 goals accumulator for tonight.
