Lincoln to check on Sam Habergham ahead of cup clash with Brighton

Sam Habergham is an injury doubt for Lincoln as they prepare to continue their FA Cup adventure at home to Brighton.

The left-back suffered a dead leg against Dover and subsequently missed the defeat at Barrow on Tuesday night, with right-back Sean Long filling in as Habergham was absent for the first time this season.

Habergham will be assessed with Imps boss Danny Cowley describing it as "touch and go" whether he will be fit in time for the fourth-round tie.

On-loan Brighton winger Joe Ward is not eligible to play against his parent club.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton made 11 changes in the last round against MK Dons and could do the same again.

Striker Glenn Murray is available after suspension but is unlikely to be among those thrown in.

Defender Liam Rosenior is close to returning from an ankle injury and could get some minutes under his belt.

Niki Maenpaa is set for a run-out in goal while Uwe Hunemeier, Richie Towell and Steve Sidwell are also in line to start.
