My views ahead of the game: When I started the “Score Predictions v Northampton Town” thread, I stated that I think The Imps will win 2-1. Truth is, I can’t remember the last time I predicted anything other than a 2-1 win for City. I’m confident that we can come away with all three points, but I certainly won’t be complaining if we only pick up a point!
Views from the “Score Predictions” thread:
graemetheexile: “2-1 Lincoln. They better win. I never saw a victory in all the away games I went to last year – I’ll start to feel like a curse soon.”
PerthImp: “Reckon it’ll be a typical cagey opening 15 mins like most season first-games. If the Imps can get ahead I wonder if Northampton will crumble – aren’t they in a bit of a pickle ATM? If that’s the case I reckon 1 – 3 win for us.”
