Our Lincoln vs Bolton prediction is for a decisive away win. Can the Imps avoid yet another loss against the Trotters? 

Lincoln are in decent form lately (W2 D3 L1) but their struggle for wins means that they lost touch with the top 6 and need to be doing better. The Imps recorded 3 consecutive draws on home turf. Bolton sit just outside the top 2 and they continue to be excellent on the road.

How far will Bolton’s fans travel to Lincoln?

The driving distance between Bolton and Lincoln is 113 miles (181km) and with a large portion of that on main roads the journey shouldn’t take longer than 2 hours and 15 minutes. 

On Boxing Days the roads are expected to be quiet so Bolton’s fans shouldn’t worry about traffic delays or any road works. Still, if you decide to part late into the night on Christmas Day you better set your warm for an early hour if you want to avoid the embarrassment of missing the match you bought a ticket for. 

​Lincoln vs Bolton: Tickets

At the time of writing, there are only a few tickets left available for the game. The price of tickets varies only slightly £25.00 or £26.00 options depending on the stand chosen. We must stress that these tickets are available only for the home fans. 

Bolton sold out all of their 1,900 allocated tickets nearly 10 days ago. We were told that the away supporters snapped up all available tickets in a matter of hours once they got on sale so it is highly unlikely that anybody will be trying to resell a ticket online.
