Lincoln – Cheltenham preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

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

Lincoln

Lincoln were busy in midweek with a high-profile League Cup home clash vs Premier League outfit West Ham. The Imps put up a mixed squad of regulars and reserves on the pitch. They fought hard and could have caused an upset but in the end, suffered a 0-1 loss. 

Lincoln were comfortable 2-0 winners when they last hosted Cheltenham on Good Friday. 

Star striker Mandroiu remains touch-and-go due to a groin injury. If he’s to miss Lincoln will be without their main target inside the box. The Imps are already missing forwards House, Vale and Walker due to injuries so their front line is pretty bruised right now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

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

Cheltenham

Cheltenham’s misery continued with a 0-3 defeat vs Stevenage. The Seagulls once again lacked composure and they are yet to score this campaign. This after playing 9 league games already. 

Coach Wade Elliott was sacked right before this last game and for now, Kevin Russell is serving as an interim head coach. 

Winger Olayinka misses this game suspended. Star striker Lloyd and the two main centre-backs Smith and Horton are also unavailable as they remain in the treatment room. There are at least 5 others that also nurse injuries but hopes are that they all will heal on time. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Southwood (GK), Long, Bevan, Freestone, Ferry, Bonds, Sercombe, Hammond, Keena, Street & Malcolm 

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Ethan Erhahon

Lincoln’s main playmaker Ethan Erhahon is the barometer for the Imps all season. When Erhahon plays well Lincoln do well, when he can’t perform the Imps struggle. Erhahon is known for his dominant displays at home and this is what we expect to see from him now.
