Lincoln City V Port Vale at Sincil Bank : Match Preview

24 November 2017
Lincoln to make late call on Michael Bostwick

Lincoln manager Danny Cowley will make a late decision on Michael Bostwick ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League Two game at home to Port Vale.

Bostwick missed the defeat to Colchester on Tuesday with a hamstring strain and the midfielder could be absent this weekend.

Harry Anderson came through 90 minutes against Colchester after recovering from a knee injury and is likely to play again.

Lincoln are 11th, four points behind the play-off places after just one win in five league matches.

Port Vale will have defender Antony Kay back from suspension for the trip to Sincil Bank.

Centre-back Kay sat out Tuesday's thrashing by Mansfield because of a one-game ban after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season last weekend.

Vale manager Neil Aspin has said midfielder Chris Regis is unavailable, although he did not provide a reason.

Defender Joe Davis (thigh), midfielder Ben Whitfield (ankle) and forward Tyrone Barnett (groin) are unlikely to return.
