Sheffield United vs Lincoln City Predictions

[wptb id="394003" not found ]

An EFL Cup Showdown of Renewed Hopes

Key Stats
– Sheffield United, despite their challenging start, have lost their league games by only a one-goal difference.
– Lincoln City have showcased a formidable form, acquiring 10 points from their initial five games this season.
– Sheffield’s Oliver McBurnie has a noteworthy BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 6.90, making him a player to watch in the upcoming match.

Sheffield United have set their sights on advancing to the EFL Cup’s third round, aiming to outclass Lincoln City this Wednesday. While the visitors, quite unexpectedly, made their way to the competition’s fourth round last season, they demonstrated their mettle by triumphing over Notts County in the inaugural round this year. Sheffield United, following their commendable ascension to the Premier League, were granted a pass into the second round. Their aspirations run high after their admirable performance last season, reaching the FA Cup semi-finals, only to be thwarted by the eventual champions, Manchester City.

Recent Form Analysis

There’s been an air of disappointment for The Blades, who, despite putting up a valiant fight, found themselves on the losing side against Manchester City again, thanks to Rodri’s eleventh-hour goal. Their journey so far this season has been a rocky one, losing all three league games, albeit by a mere goal difference each time. Their manager, Paul Heckingbottom, remains hopeful and optimistic about his squad’s performance.

On the flip side, Lincoln City, under the guidance of Mark Kennedy, are in high spirits. After concluding last season at a respectable 11th position, they’ve started this season on a strong note, amassing 10 points from their first five fixtures in England’s third division. Their recent 3-0 victory against Blackpool further testifies to their commendable form.

Potential Line-ups and Key Players

Sheffield are wrestling with a series of injuries. Ben Osborn, who was injured during their recent match against Man City, joins the list of players, including Max Lowe, Daniel Jebbison, and Rhian Brewster, who won’t be making an appearance. This might result in Heckingbottom reshuffling his pack, introducing players like Chris Basham and Oli McBurnie into the fray.

Lincoln City might also rotate their squad, given their aspirations to maintain their position in the League One standings. However, they’ll be missing their experienced defender, Lewis Montsma, who’s still recuperating.


1. Match Outcome: Sheffield United to Triumph

Upon examining the form and fitness of both Sheffield United and Lincoln City, it’s evident that the Blades are favourites to clinch this tie. The recent Premier League promotions for Sheffield United, despite their hardships in the league, have endowed them with experience and resilience, a significant edge over their League One opponents. Lincoln City may have shown promising form at the start of their campaign, but Sheffield’s Premier League experience is an invaluable asset. The Blades are playing at home, which provides them an added advantage. However, given their recent goal margin in matches, it’s sensible to suggest a narrow win, potentially by a one-goal margin.

2. Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 in Favour of Sheffield United

Delving deeper into the scoring patterns, Sheffield United have an intriguing trend: they’ve lost their opening three league games by just one goal. This suggests that, while they’ve been struggling to hold onto leads or draw level, they are not being completely overwhelmed by their opposition. On the other side, Lincoln City have managed to maintain a solid defensive record, but facing a Premier League side is a different ball game. It’s quite plausible that Sheffield United, with the firepower of McBurnie and potential debutant Cameron Archer, can net a couple past Lincoln. However, given Lincoln’s attacking prowess in their own division, they might just snatch one back.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Oliver McBurnie to Find the Net

Oliver McBurnie has been a pivotal figure for Sheffield United, and with a starting spot likely against Lincoln City, he’s a prime candidate to make his mark on the scoresheet. McBurnie’s experience in the Premier League, combined with his natural instinct in front of the goal, makes him a significant threat to Lincoln’s defence. Additionally, with potential changes to both line-ups, there might be a slight disruption in defensive coordination, and players like McBurnie can capitalise on such moments. Given Lincoln’s League One defensive stats and the probable defensive changes, McBurnie is poised to exploit any gaps and get himself amongst the goals.
