Lincoln – Port Vale 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 Port Vale lineups.

Lincoln

Lincoln are yet to find consistency this season and their form remains unpredictable. They lost 3 of their last 6 league games (W2 D1). That said the Imps remain solid hosts and managed to secure wins in 5 of their last 8 home outings. 

Mixed a win and a defeat in the cups in recent days too. Last weekend left the FA Cup at the first hurdle after being edged 1-2 by Morecambe. On Tuesday gave a solid reaction with a 2-0 win vs Notts County in the EFL Trophy. 

Lincoln remain under interim management and Tom Shaw is about to take charge of his fifth game. 

The main issues remain in attack where 3 important players are unavailable right now due to injuries. Strikers House and Walker have been absent for some time. Key winger Hacket-Fairchild is also ruled out after a recent issue picked in training. 

Predicted Lineup:

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

Port Vale

Port Vale are under huge pressure after going on an awful 8-game winless run in the league (D2 L6). The Valiants have forgotten how to score goals lately while they remain the most vulnerable team when asked to defend set pieces in the entire League One. 

The unimpressive displays continued in the cups. Last weekend's scrappy 0-0 draw vs Burton in the FA Cup sent the tie to a replay. Port Vale then lost 1-2 vs lower-league Wrexham on Tuesday in the EFL Trophy. 

It is hardly surprising that Port Vale struggles defensively right now. They continue to be missing 3 key defenders due to injuries. All of Balmer, Iacovitti and Clark remain unavailable. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Ripley (GK), Cass, Smith, Lowe, Sang, Ojo, Arblaster, Ikpeazu, Garrity, Devine & Plant 

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Ethan Hamilton

Lincoln’s summer signing Ethan Hamilton established as a key figure quickly. With his 2 goals and 3 assists the Scotsman is one of the most important midfielders the Imps have and there is a direct link to Hamilton playing well and Lincoln winning. Can he produce another stellar display this weekend?
