Lincoln vs Carlisle
It can seems a bit hazardous this handicap for hosts considering that they comes from an home draw against one of the weakest teams in league ( Cambridge is second from bottom) and Carlisle is only three points far from promotion playoffs and the second best away team.
But also Carlisle loose in last round ( away) against the worst team of league, giving to newpromoted Macclesfield the first win of the season and, as said by same trainer playing in an embarassing way. So, he won’t be afraid to give more of his youth team players senior experience also considering that guests - at sixth defeat in nine rounds, having won only the remaining three - remain also with regulars out as Devitt ( midf.10+1 1g), Grainger ( def.5), Hope ( att.11 2g), Liddle ( midf.13) and Parkes ( def.14) injuried on Saturday.
Lincoln has only two0 defeats in the season and at home the one against Cambridge was the only draw ( 5-1-1 13/6) and already with six points of advantage on second on table Exeter they can strenght their leadership against a team in downtrend and probably also psychologically wounded.
