While an FA Cup upset is a definite possibility, Al Hain-Cole is confident the television cameras will at least be rewarded with a high-scoring game

Lincoln City will be hoping to pull off an FA Cup upset when they welcome Ipswich Town to Sincil Bank for Tuesday's third round replay.

Having held their Championship opponents to a 2-2 draw at Portman Road, the non-league underdogs are available at 9/4 (3.25) with Paddy Power to complete a shock victory in front of their own fans.

With just three wins to their name in 12 away games this campaign, Mick McCarthy's team are priced at 11/10 (2.10) to set up a home clash with Brighton in the next round by coming out on top here.

Four of the guests' last seven FA Cup matches have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them taking this one into extra-time with another stalemate.

Having been denied a famous cup win after conceding a late equaliser in Suffolk, the Imps at least have the consolation of a high-profile night in front of a packed home crowd and the live television cameras.

What's more, neutral viewers should also be treated to an entertaining spectacle considering the hosts are averaging over two goals per game in front of their own fans, hitting eight in their last three alone.

While just two defeats in 17 home matches this campaign suggests Danny Cowley's team could create a shock, at the very least there should be plenty of goals when they take on a team that has conceded twice or more in 10 of their last 14 fixtures.

In fact, with the Tractor Boys having struck 13 times in the previous six matches themselves, odds of 8/11 (1.73) are not to be missed on over 2.5 goals being scored in an entertaining cup clash.

That bet would have paid out in 12 of Lincoln's last 14 fixtures, as well as six of Ipswich's previous seven.

Over 2.5 goals at 8/11 (1.73) for a 3pt stake with Paddy Power
