Sunderland head into Wednesday’s match in pretty dire form, with just one win and four defeats from their last nine matches.

Lincoln’s form at home this season has been poor. In fact, they have only won one of their previous six at Sincil Bank.

Having finished 16th last season, Lincoln have done well to reach the play-offs. For Sunderland, it’s the absolute minimum they could have hoped for considering where they were in January.

These two sides have already met three times this season, with Sunderland winning two and drawing one of those fixtures.

Charlie Wyke to score. Wyke ended the campaign as the second-top goalscorer in League One with 25 goals. Wyke has already netted three times against Lincoln this season.

Lincoln City vs Sunderland: Match preview

Lincoln City welcome Sunderland to Sincil Bank for the first-leg of their League One play-off semi-final tie.

Lincoln City finished 5th in the table, level on 77 points with Sunderland, but with a worse off goal difference. Lincoln failed to win any of their last three league matches, the most recent of which was a goalless draw at home.

Despite reaching the play-offs, Lincoln’s home record ranked 14th in League One this season. The Imps only picked up 32 points from 23 matches at Sincil Bank, winning nine and drawing five of those matches.

Sunderland finished 4th this season. It’s fair to say that Sunderland’s early-season dominance lead to some complacency. Lee Johnson’s side were on course for an automatic promotion before a disaster run in which saw them one of their final nine matches.

Sunderland had the 4th-best away record this season, winning 11 and drawing nine of their 23 matches on the road. Sunderland have found the back of the net in all but one of their last 15 away matches. Only Hull City managed to score more away goals than Sunderland (38), while no team conceded fewer (17).

Lincoln City have never played in the Championship. The Imps last competed in the second tier of English Football (then Division 2) back in 1961.

Sunderland are aiming to play in the Championship for the first time since the 2017-18 season. the Black Cats have spent the last three seasons in League One. They reached the play-offs in their first League One campaign (2018-19) but were beaten by Charlton Athletic in the final.

Lincoln and Sunderland have met on three occasions this season already. Sunderland thrashed Lincoln 4-0 at Sincil Bank back in December 2020.

The two sides met again in February at the Stadium of Light in the semi-finals of the EFL Trophy (which Sunderland went on to win). The match ended in a 1-1 draw but Sunderland won the resulting shootout 5-3.

One month later, the sides met again in the league the Stadium of Light, with the match once again ending in a 1-1 draw.

The second leg will be played at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon. The winner of the two-legged tie will meet one of Oxford United and Blackpool in the League One play-off final at Wembley Stadium on 30 May.


Lincoln City team news vs Sunderland

Michael Appleton has no absentees to contend with. Joe Walsh has recovered from a minor injury setback and should partner Spurs loanee Timothy Eyoma in defence.

West Brom loanee Alex Palmer is set to start in goal for the Imps.

Liam Bridcutt is set to face his former side. Bridcutt made 30 Premier League appearances for Sunderland between 2013 and 2015.
