Peterborough going up

This match sees second take on third with Peterborough knowing a point will secure them promotion to the Championship. Lincoln will know that they can take the race for automatic promotion to the final game if they can muster a victory. Unfortunately for them, we think Peterborough will get the job done. Both sides are in decent form with just one loss in their last five but there is one key factor that swings the game in favour of the Posh. What is it? Well, Lincoln had a similar opportunity to this against Hull just two games ago. They bottled it.

Someone will blank

The opening prediction we've made has touched on the size of the prize at stake as Peterborough and Lincoln lock horns. So often in big games the game play doesn't live up to the hype. We suspect it might be a similar deal here. The recent results of both sides back it up too. Three of Peterborough's last five have ended with a ‘nil' in the score whilst only one of Lincoln's last five have seen both teams score.

That man Clarke-Harris to score yet again

For the last of our tips we're sticking our heads out with a goal scorer prediction. Let's reiterate, we think Peterborough are likely to win the match but we also believe the encounter to be a cagey one. If things play out that way, the game could well be settled by a moment of quality. If anyone is going to deliver that it will be Clarke-Harris. He's top scorer in the league and with eight goals in his last 10, he's bang in form too.

Key stats for Peterborough vs Lincoln

Promotion for Posh, playoffs for Lincoln

Regardless of how this match unfolds, Lincoln will be hard pressed to pip Peterborough into second place. Then again, they have to give it their best shot. Peterborough know they're so close to mission accomplished that they'll do whatever it takes to get over the line whether that be beautiful or ugly.
