Charlton vs Lincoln Predictions

The equation is simple for eighth-placed Charlton. They must avoid defeat to stay in the play-off hunt, although they realistically need to win to turn the heat on sixth-placed Portsmouth. 

Lincoln are already assured of a play-off spot, but can move up to third spot if avoiding defeat. With both sides in good form and needing a result for differing reasons, a draw is tipped at The Valley.

  • Charlton are undefeated in 12 of their last 13 matches (League One).
  • Charlton have drawn their last 2 matches (League One).
  • Charlton have drawn 3 of their last 5 home matches (League One).
  • Lincoln are undefeated in 6 of their last 7 matches (League One).
  • Lincoln are undefeated in their last 4 away matches (League One).

Head to Head

Lincoln took the points when the sides met in the reserve fixture earlier in the season courtesy of a 2-0 win. 

Jorge Grant struck in first-half injury time and Lewis Montsma sealed the win with an 88th minute goal.

Charlton Form

Charlton's play-off bid has stalled following three games without a win, including successive draws in their last two matches in League One.

Nigel Adkins' side lost 1-0 at home to Peterborough with Jayden Stockley's missed penalty proving costly. That remains their only defeat in the last 13 matches.

The Addicks have since drawn 2-2 at home to Crewe with Stockley and Alex Gilbey getting the goals.

On Saturday, Charlton were held to a 1-1 stalemate at Accrington. Chuks Aneke's 95th equaliser rescued a point for Charlton.

Chuks Aneke staked his claim for a start after scoring from the bench at Accrington.

Midfielder Ben Watson is available to face Lincoln after missing the weekend draw. But winger Diallang Jaiyesimi remains out.

Lincoln Form

Lincoln's automatic promotion hopes were dashed on Saturday after they blew a 3-0 lead away to Peterborough.

Anthony Scully scored twice, either side of a Jorge Grant penalty. But Posh got two back through Siriki Dembele and Jonson Clarke-Harris.

Clarke-Harris then equalised with a 96th minute penalty to seal a point for Peterborough, which earned them automatic promotion at Lincoln's expense.

Lincoln have lost one of their last seven matches having gone down to champions Hull. They have drawn against Blackpool and beaten MK Dons, Bristol Rovers, Burton and Shrewsbury in their recent run.

Lincoln Team News

Lincoln are still without injured defenders Joe Walsh and Adam Jackson.

Midfielder Brennan Johnson was ruled out of Lincoln's draw with Peterborough due to a hamstring injury, but is expected to included on Tuesday night.
