ENGLAND ...... DIVISION 2
NOTTS COUNTY- LINCOLN CITY
City have won 6 from 8 and have regrouped under boss Peter Jackson, however, he has been diagnosed with cancer and in the first game he missed, having been given leave of absence, they were thumped 4-1 at Chesterfield, who have not been playing well.
He is bound to be missed by the players and it may take a few matches for them to come to terms with the changes. They have secured their safety and now have little to play for in the league.
County are only six points ahead of basement club Wrexham and are desperate for anything they can get, points wise. Especially, with two tough games ahead against Peterborough and Rochdale. They do draw a lot of games, but have only lost to Bradford and Darlington in their last ten starts.
It is reported elsewhere, that the home side have a lot of players missing, but the majority of these are minor knocks and they are likely to start, having been nursed through recent days.
City have six players out for sure and have a dire record at County, winning on just 3 of 27 visits.
5.5 points Notts County -1/4 ball 2.14 asian line.... now 2.08
