Wanderers are back on the road on Tuesday night when they take on Lincoln City at the LNER Stadium.

The Imps finished fifth in League One last season, narrowly missing out on a place in the Championship after losing to Blackpool at Wembley.

Michael Appleton’s men enter the game on the back of a 2-1 win over Fleetwood Town thanks to a brace from Anthony Scully.

Marc Iles caught up with Mark Whiley from Lincolnshire Live to get the lowdown on the Imps.

Lincoln went so close last season. What are they looking like this term?

They have made a really good start to the season. I suppose the concern after last season - finishing fifth and losing the play-off final - was that there would be a play-off hangover, but there is no sign of that so far.

They have played very well in bursts. On Saturday, they didn’t play particularly well for an hour but they just kept going - the fitness came through and they wore Fleetwood down in the end.

They went out of the League Cup in midweek to Shrewsbury Town on penalties, but there were some mitigating factors to that. But in terms of the league – a very satisfactory start.

And can they go all the way this season?

I think they have got the strength. They seem to have put the play-off defeat behind them extremely quickly.

Michael Appleton is very much someone who doesn’t live in the past. As soon as the final whistle went at Wembley, they were thinking about this season and what the targets would be.

There is a lot more strength in depth this season. They have a few players out injured that will come back in a few weeks, but they have a lot more options than last year and should be able to cope better if key players get injured like Liam Bridcutt.

And how is Liam Bridcutt getting on?

He is doing well. He started the first two league games. They gave him a rest for the League Cup tie, which was no surprise.

He was very good when he played last season but he only played 20, 25 games. He kept picking up lots of little knocks, calf issues, hamstring issues.

They are monitoring him very closely but he has been superb in the first couple of games. He is a real leader of the team and he has so much respect from the players.

Hopefully, he will be available a bit more than last season and can be a key player.

Who do Wanderers need to look out for?

Lasse Sorensen has had a really good start to the season - a summer signing from Stoke City.

Anthony Scully scored both goals on Saturday. He had actually been really quiet until he scored the equaliser but it was a fantastic move, great finish. And then he showed his bottle to score the penalty as well, so he is capable of popping up out of nowhere and getting a goal.

Tayo Edun is another to keep an eye on. There is a lot of interest from the Championship in him. He is a left back and provides lots of width. He had a really strong second half of last season and looks like he has gone onto another level this term.

And Teddy Bishop who has come in from Ipswich – he hasn’t started a league game yet but when he came on, he helped turn the game on Saturday.

And finally, what is your score prediction?

Judging by Bolton’s start to the season, it should be quite entertaining. I think we might see a few goals. I’ll go for a 3-2 Lincoln win.
