Lincoln City vs Crawley Town Betting Tips: Form Guide

Lincoln City Have Had A Near Perfect Season Thus Far

While Lincoln were certainly a threat in the league last time around, they’ve been on an even better run in the beginnings of this new season. They started off by beating Northampton 1-0 in a hard-fought contest and looked even better in their following 4-1 win over Swindon. They had success out of the league in a 4-0 Carabao Cup win over Port Vale, although they followed this with a disappointing 1-1 draw against a determined Grimsby.

They couldn’t be down for too long though, as they soon bounced back with three consecutive league wins; they bested Bury 2-1 in a by-the-numbers affair, made it to the top of the league after an impressive 3-1 victory over Notts County and come into this contest off one of their finest wins yet in a brilliant 3-0 win over Exeter City.

Even though this was sandwiched between losses in both the Carabao Cup, in a humbling 4-1 effort against Blackburn, and for the CheckaTrade Trophy in a tough 2-1 battle with Mansfield, within the realm of League Two, they’ve looked brilliant throughout. Thus far, they have the record to prove it. It’s no surprise then that most Lincoln City vs Crawley Town betting tips have these as firm favourites.

Crawley Town Show Passion Even If It Hasn’t Provided Results

In contrast to their opponents, Crawley’s recent games have been a bit of a disappointment, although not to the extent that any wise Lincoln City vs Crawley Town match previews would count them out entirely.

For starters, their opening match of the season was a 1-0 victory over Cheltenham with a debut goal from new signing Ollie Palmer. However, this good start didn’t catch fire, as they then lost 3-1 to Stevenage, which was closer than the end result suggested. Another disappointment followed away from the league with a 2-1 loss to Bristol Rovers, although once again, they can take solace in putting up a strong fight against a tough side.

They were denied yet again once they returned to the league in a 1-0 loss to Port Vale in a sloppy display of missed opportunities. Their following 2-2 draw with Swindon was at least dramatic, even if it didn’t give them satisfaction. That would come in the form of an impassioned 3-2 win over Bury. Turbulence would, however, follow, with the loss of manager Harry Kewell and a 2-1 defeat to Oldham.

 

Despite their difficulties and many of these results, there have been a lot of positives to find in Crawley’s recent performances, even if they rarely seemed to bear fruit. There has certainly been enough for the team to avoid being written off just yet.

Lincoln City vs Crawley Town Preview: Recent Meetings

In terms of gleaning insights from past contests when determining Lincoln City vs Crawley Town betting tips for today, this is a case of bad news and good news. The bad news is that these teams have rarely met. The good news is that, on the couple of occasions that they have, they’ve been very recently.

Fortunately for Crawley, they defied expectations with a 3-1 victory over Lincoln back in February of this year. And this was well-deserved too: no one could accuse the side of getting away with a fluke victory after this performance. Their previous 2017 clash saw them go 0-0 with the bookies’ favourites, meaning that Crawley will have a good reason to be confident despite the doubts of many commentators.

Would things be different had they met on more occasions? Probably, but the fact remains that as of now, Crawley have the head-to-head advantage.

Lincoln City vs Crawley Town Prediction: Predictable Lincoln Victory

We’ll preface this by saying that we’ve seen some commentators view this as a walkover for Lincoln. Considering how hard a time Crawley have given teams of a similar stature, we would say that’s far from a considered and educated view, especially when you consider that they’ve already been beaten by Crawley this very year.

However, does that mean that we think another upset victory is coming our way? No. Is it a very distinct possibility? Absolutely, but is it the most likely outcome? We couldn’t honestly say that seems to be the case. The fact is that Lincoln have been absolute fire so far this season and Crawley haven’t looked dominant enough to stop them.

Therefore, as it stands, our Lincoln City vs Crawley Town prediction is that the home team walk away with the much-predicted win.
