Fleetwood Town are set to face Lincoln City at Sincil Bank on Saturday 27 August, and we have all you need to know ahead of the 3pm kick-off in our match preview.
Fixture: Lincoln City v Fleetwood Town
Competition: Sky Bet League One
Date: Saturday 27 August 2022
Venue: Sincil Bank, Queen Street, Lincoln, LN5 8LD
The Cods have had a good run of form over the last three games as they have managed to keep two clean sheets against Cheltenham Town and Derby County respectively, before fighting valiantly against Premier League side Everton in Round Two of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.
In the clash against the Toffees, which saw Frank Lampard bring a number of first-team players to Highbury, it was Academy products Cian Hayes and Drew Baker who shone brightest as they put in man-of-the-match performances against experienced top-flight professionals.
Before that, the two clean sheets in the league meant that the side would pick up two points and would have something to build on as they now look to take all three points from the Imps as they make their way to Sincil Bank at the weekend.

Lincoln have started the campaign in a strong fashion, with their latest result being a Carabao Cup Round Two victory over League Two side Barrow on Tuesday at Holker Street.
The tie was heavily contested as Anthony Scully broke the deadlock after just eight minutes, but goals from David Moyo and Ben Whitfield flipped the game on its head with three minutes to go. Drama ensued as Jordan Garrick’s goal meant the tie would go to penalties, which the Imps won 3-1 on the night.
Even though the side fell to a 4-0 loss to recently relegated side Peterborough United, they were on a five-game unbeaten streak with wins coming against Doncaster Rovers in the EFL cup, as well as a 2-1 away win over Oxford United in the league.

PRE-MATCH QUOTES FROM STEVEN WHITTAKER
Assistant Head Coach Steven Whittaker spoke to the press on Thursday afternoon ahead of Fleetwood Town’s trip to face Lincoln City at Sincil Bank for their latest Sky Bet League One fixture – here’s what he had to say:
“We’ve done a bit of work on this; Lincoln have had the same results as us and try to play – they’re a good side. Getting points on the road is something we want to do so it’s a game we want to go into with confidence, especially from what we’ve done in the early part of the season and just try to build on it.
“There are no easy games. I’ve watched English football and have played in it as well so I’m aware that if you're not at it, and aren’t ready for any specific game, regardless of where they are in the league, then you put yourself up to lose that game.
“We’re expecting a tough game, they play in a similar style to us, so if we can match them in terms of intensity or be in front of them in the intensity, we will give ourselves a good foothold in the game. The gaffer has gone on about mentality and we are going into each game looking to win it, so we need to make sure we are prepared and ready to go.”
