Leigh Copson: Back Shrewsbury Town Draw No Bet vs. Lincoln City @ 6/5 William Hill

Lincoln City enjoyed a sensational start to the season as they began life in the third tier with a run of three consecutive victories, but the past several weeks have been something of a reality check for the Imps. They have won just two of their last 10 league games, losing seven times, bowed out of both the League Cup and the EFL Trophy, and they have also lost the services of the Cowley brothers – the men who masterminded the club’s rise from non-league football to the third tier and also took them on a fairytale run in the FA Cup a couple of seasons ago.

New boss Michael Appleton endured a nightmare start to his reign with a 6-0 home thrashing at the hands of Oxford United and they have now lost three of their four games under his watch with the only positive outing being the shock 2-0 win over Sunderland a fortnight ago. To say Appleton desperately needs a positive performance and result here would be an understatement, but can he get one?

Visitors Shrewsbury Town are behind Lincoln on goal difference only heading into this fixture, but they are the team in much better form right now. The Shrews head to Sincil Bank on the back of a 1-0 league win at Tranmere Rovers and a 3-0 EFL Trophy success at home to Newcastle United’s U21s, and they have now taken points from seven of their last nine league games. Away from home they have been doing a good job of collecting points, losing just twice in six matches, so they will really fancy their chances of heading home with something to show for their efforts on Friday night. I like their chances too.

Shrewsbury are in decent form right now and that is just not the case when it comes to Lincoln. Yes, the Imps have won four of their six home games in the league so far, but this is a team who were walloped at home by an Oxford side who have won just once on the road in seven attempts, and they have also been beaten at home by a Bristol Rovers side who have not proven to be great travellers. That shows that there is some vulnerability there that Shrewsbury can take advantage of and when you add on Lincoln’s miserable overall form and away win does look like being a likely outcome here. However, given that Shrewsbury have racked up four draws already this season and were ‘draw specialists’ in 2018/19, I am going to go Draw No Bet for a spot of insurance.
