Lincoln look value to enhance cup pedigree

Danny Cowley's Lincoln could get past League One strugglers Rochdale
1 of 1

Third-round matches, from 7.30pm Tuesday
Leicester and Chelsea’s Under-21 sides are in action against Sky Bet League Two sides in the third round of the EFL Trophy with the Foxes heading to Oldham and the Blues travelling to Portsmouth.

Leicester, who fielded a strong team including £25m striker Kelechi Iheanacho for their win at Scunthorpe in the previous round, are 9-5 for victory while Chelsea’s young guns are 11-5.

Lincoln, quarter-finalists in the FA Cup last term, topped a group featuring League Two promotion rivals Notts County and Mansfield, as well as Everton’s Under-21s, and they can upset Rochdale.

The Imps have won six of their last eight in all competitions, scoring 17 goals during that run, and they saw off a useful Accrington side 3-2 in the last round.

Rochdale’s 1-0 FA Cup victory at Doncaster ended a winless sequence of six games but League One survival has to be the priority for second-bottom Dale.

Recommendation
