Lincoln City V Mansfield at Sincil Bank - Match Preview

Imps to recall regulars

Lincoln boss David Holdsworth is expected to make changes ahead of the FA Cup second round clash with fellow Blue Square Bet Premier side Mansfield.

The Imps made a number of changes for last weekend's FA Trophy defeat at Tamworth and Holdsworth is expected to revert to the same side that won four games in a row before that game.

Skipper Gary Mills will return to the side to face his former club, while top scorer Jamie Taylor will add a goal threat after netting seven times in his last nine appearances.

Midfielder Jake Sheridan is set for a recall, as are defensive duo Andrew Boyce and Dan Gray, with the Imps looking to earn a place in the third round.

Mansfield are without Gary Roberts for the tie.

The midfielder was sent off as the Stags were upset by Matlock Town in a FA Trophy replay in midweek and starts a two-match ban.

But Mansfield boss Paul Cox could welcome back Alan Marriott and Adam Murray.

Goalkeeper Marriott dislocated his shoulder in training and has been absent for 10 weeks but came through a midweek reserve match unscathed and is pushing to be included against his former club.

Skipper Murray picked up a knock in the first game against Matlock and was left out of the replay, but completed 90 minutes for the reserves.

Defender Lee Beevers is also expected to return to the squad after being rested in midweek.
