Lincoln City V Forest Green at Sincil Bank : Match Preview

Lincoln to check on Luke Waterfall ahead of Forest Green clash

Lincoln will check on defender Luke Waterfall ahead of the visit of Forest Green.

The Imps squad was hit by a sickness bug in the build-up to the Boxing Day game with Stevenage and Waterfall was one of the players most affected, causing his absence from the squad.

With Waterfall out, Rob Dickie resumed his centre-back partnership with Sean Raggett in the only change to the side which started the goalless draw at Newport.

After Lincoln kept a clean sheet in midweek, Imps boss Danny Cowley could opt to stick with Dickie even if Waterfall is available. Josh Ginnelly is pushing for a starting place after his goal coming off the bench against Stevenage.

Forest Green boss Mark Cooper could name the side which was thwarted by heavy rain at Exeter on Boxing Day.

Cooper hailed the character of bottom-placed Rovers' performance, but there was no tangible reward as the match was abandoned at half-time with the score 0-0.

Callum Evans was among those to impress after making a first start since returning from a loan spell at Torquay.

Manny Monthe, who was available after serving a two-game ban, Reece Brown and Luke James were also recalled and are expected to feature again.
