📝 Match Preview: Lincoln City v City

Exeter City are swiftly back in action in Sky Bet League Two as they make the trip to Sincil Bank to take on top of the table, Lincoln City.

The Grecians, who travel to Lincolnshire for a 7.45pm kick-off go into the match following a 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra, and will play their game in hand against the Imps looking to push themselves further into the play-off places with a win.

Ahead of the match, manager Matt Taylor said: “We’re going to go to Lincoln and try and win the game, like we do every game, but we’ve got to be ourselves.

“Anyone who has watched us recently has seen that our performances have been where they need to be, but it’s about results, and results boost confidence.”


The sides have met frequently over the past year or so with the Grecians managing to navigate their way past Danny Cowley’s men in the League Two play-off semi-final last season, but it was the Imps who came out on top at St James Park earlier in this campaign.

Goals from Lee Frecklington, John Akinde and a Troy Brown own goal would see to it that City would fall to defeat on their home turf.
