Saturday Football Betting Tip from The Oracle at Football Bets

1pt Lincoln to beat Grimsby in League two, 6/4 B365, Skybet and Tote (Saturday 7th March 3pm ko)

Lincoln’s 3-0 victory away at Dagenham in mid week was their seventh away win of the season, only leaders Brentford have a better record on the road. They have lost just once in nine matches and can still make the play offs if they continue their impressive form. Boss Peter Jackson today added Crewe’s Northern Ireland international midfielder Michael O’Connor to his squad after he joined on a month’s loan. O’Connor is a promising young player who has played over thirty games for Crewe in league one this season. He has scored five goals from midfield including one at Anfield in the Carling cup. Not many people imagined he would stay at Crewe for long, but few would have imagined his next club would be in league two, as he was tipped to play at a higher level. The reason for his loan to Lincoln was a breach of club discipline at Crewe which caused him to fall out of favour with his Icelandic manager. He is a fantastic acquisition for any club at this level as long as they can keep him out of trouble off the field.

O’Connor will go straight into tomorrow’s squad and will improve what was an already decent side. He will recognise former team mate Anthony Elding who is also on loan from Crewe until the end of the season, and Elding has a very good scoring record at this level. Lincoln also have plenty of experience in the side as Frank Sinclair and Geoff Horsfield have both played in the Premiership. Talented winger Danny N’Guessan has been attracting a host of scouts to watch him play and there were apparently seventeen at Lincoln’s last home game. With the current squad, I do not think that the play offs are beyond Lincoln.

Grimsby’s defeat to Brentford on Tuesday was their fifth in a row and resulted in the Mariners dropping into the relegation places. It has been an awful season for Grimsby who have won just four of thirty four games and lost nineteen. Scoring goals has been a big problem and they are averaging less than a goal a game. They have scored the fewest goals in league two and their top scorer has just five. They go into tomorrow’s game against Lincoln missing two important midfield players in Chris Llewellyn who is suspended, and more importantly, Dean Sinclair, who has returned to Charlton with an injury. The signing of Sinclair on loan from the Championship was a real coup for Grimsby and his departure is a big blow.     Lincoln are the form side who will have confidence in their ability to win again on the road. They have better players and a good manager. They also have much more of a goal threat than Grimsby and should be able to outscore their local rivals.
Minimum price to take – 6/5
