          Lincoln City vs Bristol Rovers Preview, Tips & Stats

          Bristol Rovers make the trip to Sincil Bank to take on Lincoln City this Saturday in League One. Both Lincoln and Bristol Rovers find themselves stuck in the mid table either looking to get into the top half or to close in on Play-off football.

          Lincoln currently sit ninth in League One after 38 games. The Imps have 15 wins, 13 draws and ten losses, leaving them on 58 points, three points from the Play-offs.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Lincoln have four wins and one draw.

          Joe Taylor opened the scoring early for Lincoln, finding the back of the net in the second minute against Port Vale. Despite Port Vale having more of the possession, a 93rd minute penalty from Reeco Hackett-Fairchild secured the 2 - 0 win for Lincoln. The visit from Shrewsbury Town saw another early goal for Lincoln, this time Teddy Bishop scoring in the sixth minute. In the second half both Hackett-Fairchild and Lasse Sorensen scored, giving Lincoln the 3 - 0 win over Shrewsbury.

          However, the next time out, Lincoln could only manage one shot on target. Stevenage could only manage one more as both sides were forced to settle for the 0 - 0 draw. Adam Phillips’ goal for Barnsley acted more as a consolation with a brace from Jack Moylan and goals from Taylor, Daniel Mandriou and Jovon Makama gave Lincoln the 5 - 1 win.

          The last time out for Lincoln was against Cambridge United. Braces from Jack Moylan and Taylor and goals from Timothy Eyoma and Dylan Duffy gave Lincoln the dominant 6 - 0 win over Cambridge.

          Bristol Rovers sit just below Lincoln in 11th in League One. In 37 games, Bristol Rovers have 14 wins, eight draws and 15 losses which leaves them on 50 points, eight points behind Lincoln.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Bristol Rovers have two wins, one draw and two losses.

          An early goal from Patrick Brough in the third minute and a goal from Mitch Pinnock gave Northampton Town the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Chris Martin did get Rovers on the scoresheet but a goal from Marc Leonard secured the 3 - 1 win for Northampton. Rovers bounced back next time out against Carlisle. Josh Vela did give Carlisle the lead but goals from Martin and Scott Sinclair gave Bristol Rovers the 2 - 1 win.

          Martin was on the scoresheet again for Bristol Rovers, this time finding the back of the net in the 30th minute with the only shot on target for Rovers. Despite Rovers going down to ten men with James Wilson sent off late on and Leyton Orient having 14 more shots, Rovers held on for the 1 - 0 win. However, the visit from Derby County next time out was one to forget for Rovers. Dwight Gayle, Tom Barkhuizen and Martyn Waghorn all scored in the second half to give Derby the 3 - 0 win.

          The most recent outing for Bristol Rovers was against Fleetwood. Despite having 60% of the possession and six shots on target, Bristol Rovers were unable to convert any of these shots in the 0 - 0 draw with Fleetwood.

          Lincoln and Bristol Rovers have met 48 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1953. Nothing separates the two sides with both Lincoln and Bristol Rovers having 19 wins in the fixture with the other ten games ending in a draw.
