Northampton vs Lincoln Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Northampton

The hosts didn't have trouble scoring goals during the preseason, but as soon as things got serious their attack crumbled. Coach Jon Brady will need to find the fix rather quickly before the situation escalates further.

Potential lineup: Thompson, Odimayo, Sherring, Guthrie, Brough, Hondermarck, Sowerby, Leonard, Pinnock, Simpson, Hoskins.

Lincoln

The circumstances for the visiting team aren't much better either with Lincoln failing to win on their first try. The guest side had a three-game losing streak before winning in the EFL Cup. However, the squad managed to earn three points with a convincing win over Wycombe over the past weekend.

Potential lineup: Jensen, Roughan, O'Connor, Eyoma, Brown, Erhahon, Hamilton, Sorensen, Mandroiu, Hackett-Fairchild, House.

Player to Watch: Louis Appere

The 24-year-old Scotland striker joined Northampton 18 months ago to get the team some goals. He fared better than some pundits expected as, thus far, he netted 12 goals in 67 appearances which is more than he scored for his former club Dundee United. Alongside those goals, Appere delivered eleven assists.

The versatile center-forward has been playing regularly in the starting lineup and that shouldn't change shortly. However, with the team struggling to get chances for scoring goals, something needs to change before attacking players like Louis Appere gets the brunt of the criticism. In the meantime, Appere is searching for his best form to make sure he gets his continued chance in the first team.
