Lincoln City vs West Ham United match preview

It’s 41-years since these two clubs last met, with West Ham prevailing 2-1 in a League Cup second round replay back then.

Overall, the Hammers are unbeaten in six meetings with the Imps, with Lincoln dreaming of their first victory in this fixture since a 4-2 victory at the Boleyn Ground in August 1956.

Just to get this far, Lincoln City have already had to win two away games, first beating Notts County 2-0 at Meadow Lane, before a penalty shootout victory over top-flight Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The Imps reached the fourth round for the first time since 1967 just last season, but are now on the cusp of getting there again.

Mark Kennedy’s team were beaten 2-1 by Portsmouth on Saturday, suffering their first defeat since the opening weekend, although a sequence of draws leaves them 13th in League One.

West Ham United meantime are simply seeking to avoid a huge upset, dreaming of a first League Cup Final appearance since 1981.

The Hammers come into this one following back-to-back Premier League defeats, both 3-1, beaten by Manchester City at home and then Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, despite playing very well in both.

Given their Europa League commitments, the matches continue to come thick-and-fast for David Moyes’ men but, having lifted silverware back in June, they will not want to write off the Carabao Cup.

Will it be the traveling contingent of West Ham supporters who are celebrating come full time at Sincil Bank?

Lincoln City team news

Hakeeb Adelakun, who’s only just back after injury, scored his first goal of the season at Fratton Park on Saturday, so will continue to lead the line.

West Ham United team news

David Moyes will rotate his team for this one, as he did for last Thursday’s comeback 3-1 victory over TSC Bačka Topola in the Europa League.

Łukasz Fabiański will return in goal, while there’s also likely to be starts for Konstantinos Mavropanos, Thilo Kehrer, Pablo Fornals, Mohammed Kudus and Danny Ings.

In attack, Jarrod Bowen has scored in all four of West Ham’s away games this season, so can he keep that streak going?
