A new date for Lincoln City’s Leasing.com Trophy clash against Manchester United U21s at Sincil Bank has been confirmed.

The Imps were due to host the Red Devils youngsters in Northern Group H of the competition on Tuesday, August 27.

But after City reached the second round of the Carabao Cup, where they were beaten 4-2 by Everton, the match had to be rearranged.

It will now take place on Tuesday, October 1 (7.45pm kick-off).

After losing their opening group match 3-1 at Doncaster Rovers last week, the Imps need a positive result to keep their hopes of reaching the last 32 alive.

United, who have entered a team in the competition for the first time, kicked off their campaign with a 2-0 win at Rotherham United in August.

The Red Devils’ other group game is at Doncaster on Tuesday, October 29, while the Imps’ final match of the group is at home to Rotherham on Tuesday, November 12.

The match against United kicks off a tough October for City, who then host Sunderland on October 5.

That is followed by the trip to Peterborough United, a Friday home clash with Shrewsbury Town, a midweek trip to Portsmouth and home date with Bolton Wanderers.
