Bristol Rovers – Lincoln preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Bristol Rovers vs Lincoln lineups.

Bristol Rovers

Rovers once again failed to impress last weekend when hosting Wycombe. The Gas were outplayed in midfield in this match and deservedly lost 1-2. Coach Burton is under pressure already after his team won just once (D2 L2) so far. Yet to keep a clean sheet. 

In search of improved defensive efficiency could shake up the back line. Recently signed right-back Hunt and veteran Friend could stat. Gibbons is still not an option as he remains sidelined. Hard-working midfielder Rossiter is also out injured. He has been missed a lot. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Cox (GK), Hunt, Wilson, Grama, Friend, Ward, Finley, Thomas, Sinclair, Collins & Brown

Lincoln

Lincoln put up a decent fight in midweek in the League Cup against the Premier League outfit Sheffield United. The game was still lost 0-1 but the Imps played with confidence and on another day could have easily won. 

Lincoln are making a strong start to the season and they collected 10 points from their last 4 league games. Their only defeat so far came in the curtain opener. 

Defender Montsma remains the only sidelined player so Lincoln are pretty much at full strength. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Jensen (GK), Jackson, O’Connor, Roughan, Sorensen, Erhahon, Hamilton, Burroughs, Mandroiu, House & Hackett-Fairchild

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Lukas Jensen

For Lincoln to be so successful lately their Danish goalie Lukas Jensen had to come up with some great saves. Jensen has been in excellent form and more of the same will be needed if the Imps want to travel back home from Bristol with all the points in the bag.
