Lincoln City have lost only one of their first eight games and have picked up 19 points on the back of six wins and one draw. They have scored 16 goals in eight games, so they are expected to find the net on Friday. The hosts look favourites for a win, but MK Dons are going to be tricky opponents. The visitors have been rather difficult to beat, and they have conceded only four goals in seven games. Like Lincoln City, they are also chasing promotion. They are unbeaten this season, but they have drawn more than half of their games. Thus, a low-scoring draw looks like good value in Lincoln City vs MK Dons Betting Tips.

Lincoln City vs Milton Keynes Dons Betting Tips: Form Guide

The hosts favourites to win

Lincoln City have made a decent start to the new season, and they currently sit at the summit of the league table.

The Red Imps have lost only one of their eight games, but that defeat came in their last home game at Crawley. However, they can be excused for that result as they were reduced to ten men in the 55th minute of the game.

They recovered from that defeat to claim a 1-2 win at second-from-bottom Macclesfield last weekend. Prior to the slip against Crawley, Lincoln had picked up maximum points from their three home games.

Lincoln City have been prolific on the scoring front and they are scoring at the rate of two goals/game. They haven’t been bad at the back either and have conceded just six goals. It appears that manager Danny Cowley has finally assembled a squad that is capable of making the jump to League One. South African striker John Akinde is leading the way on scoring front for the hosts with four goals.

Cowley would be without the services of Josh Vickers and Sam Habergham due to injuries. Matt Green is a doubt and Lee Frecklington is suspended for the game.

Dons aim to continue their unbeaten run

MK Dons are one of two unbeaten sides left in League Two. They have become difficult to beat under new-manager Paul Tisdale, but their safety-first approach has resulted in a lot of draws.

The visitors have drawn four of their seven games and they come into this game following consecutive 1-1 draws against Swindon and Forrest Green. They are currently ninth in the table with 13 points. Only goal difference separates them from playoff places and they also have a game in hand on most of their neighbouring sides. However, MK Dons have looked exasperating going forward, and they have scored only seven goals. No other side among top-17 in League Two have scored less than nine goals. Understandably, Dons have looked solid at the back and have conceded only four goals in seven games. Kieran Agard has scored two goals in seven starts and he is currently Dons’ top scorer.

Winger Peter Pawlett and midfielder Conor McGrandles are long-term absences for Tisdale. Defender Baily Cargill picked up a knock in the home draw against Forest Green, and he is a doubt for Saturday. However, Brandon Thomas-Asante and Sam Nombe are available for selection once again.

Lincoln City vs Milton Keynes Dons Preview: Recent Meetings

Lincoln City have never managed a win against MK Dons. Prior to this season, both clubs had spent only two years together in the same division – League Two 06/07 and 07/08. The Dons claimed three wins and one game ended in a draw.

Both sides were also paired against each other in the opening round of FA Cup 2005-06. Lincoln managed a 1-1 draw at home but lost 2-1 in the replay. Therefore, the head-to-head record is clearly supporting the away side in Lincoln City vs MK Dons best odds, but these two sides haven’t faced each other in more than ten years. Hence, you shouldn’t give too much importance to Lincoln’s poor record against their opponents in the Lincoln City vs MK Dons best odds.

Lincoln City vs Milton Keynes Dons Prediction

This game promises to be a clash of two contrasting football philosophies. Lincoln City have been playing some attractive football this season, and they deservedly sit in the pole position. The Red Imps have made significant progress under Cowley in last two years. In 2016-17, they were promoted to Football League, and within two years at this level, they look like the most exciting team in the division.

The Red Imps seemed to have struck a good balance between their attack and defence, and they would fancy all three points against the Dons.

MK Dons finished 23rd in League One last season and find themselves in their second spell at this level. The last time MK Dons were at this level, they didn’t take more than a season to achieve promotion. Their ambition remains the same under their new manager.

Tisdale has joined MK Dons following a long spell with Exeter City. He brings a lot of experience of managing in lower leagues. He led Exeter to success against Lincoln in Playoff semi-finals last season, but his side lost to Coventry in the final. He would be aiming to go one step further with the Dons this season.
