Match Preview: Lincoln City

12 March 2020

Setting the scene…

Tranmere Rovers return to Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon aiming for a fourth Sky Bet League One win in a row when they host Lincoln City, 3pm kick-off.

Micky Mellon’s men earned a third successive victory in the third-tier following Tuesday night’s 2-1 triumph away at Blackpool.

The result moved Rovers just three-points from safety heading into the weekend clash with Michael Appleton’s Imps.

Lincoln arrive on the Wirral last Saturday, with Tom Hopper’s double helping them see off Burton Albion at Sincil Bank.

Team news

Neil Danns remains a doubt for the visit of Lincoln after picking up a knock at Accrington.

Morgan Feeney is back with Everton with recovering from a hamstring injury.

One to watch

Experienced defensive midfielder Liam Bridcutt is currently on loan at Lincoln City from Nottingham Forest after signing in January.

Reading-born Bridcutt turned professional at Chelsea before signing for Brighton and Hove Albion in 2010.

During four years on the South Coast, Bridcutt featured on 151 occasions, winning promotion to the Championship in his first year in a Seagulls shirt.

He signed for  Sunderland in January 2014 and also went onto represent Leeds United prior to an undisclosed fee Nottingham Forest transfer in August 2017.

Bridcutt, 30, who is capped by Scotland, was on loan at Bolton Wanderers before his Lincoln move.
