Lincoln City are back in action for the first time since hitting Port Vale for six last week as they host Cambridge United on Saturday.
The Imps are looking to stretch their lead at the top of Sky Bet League Two, which currently stands at four points. Both Exeter City and Newport County sit directly below Lincoln.
Visitors Cambridge have not had the start of the season that was perhaps expected from their fan base. The U’s are sat in 23rd place, currently in the relegation zone. However, victory at Sincil Bank on Saturday could see them shoot up to 21st.
As mentioned before, the Imps are coming into the tie after hitting Port Vale for six on the weekend. It was the first time that Lincoln have scored six goals away from home since the 1930’s. Harry Anderson started the scoring with just three minutes played. Shay McCartan added a second before Leon Legge put through his own net before the interval.
It took just three minutes of the second half for the Imps to add another with Michael Bostwick adding a fourth. A superb free-kick from Tom Conlon put Vale on the score sheet before Lincoln took it away from them once more. Scott Wharton and James Wilson added the fifth and sixth respectively.
Vale would score once more with Ben Whitfield slamming a penalty past Josh Vickers in the 94th minute of the game.
This result gave Danny Cowley and Lincoln City full-back Harry Toffolo a deserved spot in the EFL team of the weekend.
Cambridge head into the tie on the back of a home defeat to MK Dons. Chuks Aneke scored his 6th goal in all competitions to give the promotion chasers a crucial three points.
