When Lincoln City travels to face Bristol City in the EFL Cup third round matchup on Tuesday, they will be hoping to avoid suffering a second consecutive cup exit in the span of a few days.
The weekend saw the hosts and Middlesbrough play to a Championship draw, while Lincoln suffered a shocking FA Cup loss to Chippenham Town.

Tips and Prediction
For Bristol City, a fantastic start to the Championship season in the summer has now faded into insignificance. With a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium, their winless streak in the second tier has now reached four games.
Before Chuba Akpom equalized for Boro two minutes into the second half, captain Andreas Weimann had given Nigel Pearson’s team the lead. As a result, Pearson’s team has only taken two points out of the last 12 available during a miserable turn of events.
The Robins have won just two of their last 12 Championship games as they get ready to resume their EFL Cup duties. They defeated Coventry City 4-1 in the first round before defeating Wycombe Wanderers 3-1 on the road in the second round.
Three first-round exits have dogged the hosts since they advanced to the semi-finals of the 2017-18 edition, but Bristol City will undoubtedly benefit from their opponents’ recent cup woes. In the past four seasons, they have only once advanced to the third round of the EFL Cup.
Lincoln’s FA Cup match against non-league Chippenham Town did not go over well with all of its supporters, and the League One strugglers quickly became the latest victims of an FA Cup giant killing on Saturday.
The hosts advanced to the second round of the FA Cup at the expense of the Imps thanks to a goal from Joe Hanks in the 44th minute.
The 2022–23 season will be just the second time in 18 years that the visitors have advanced this far after defeating Doncaster Rovers 3-0 in the first round and defeating Barrow on penalties in the second round. The Imps have never advanced past the third round of the EFL Cup.
With the weekend’s FA Cup humiliation, confidence levels in the Lincoln camp would have reached a new low.
Bristol City hasn’t exactly been shining in recent weeks either, but Pearson’s team should have enough talent to advance to the EFL Cup’s next round.
