BREWERS NEWS

The Brewers come into this fixture having settled for a point against Southend United on Tuesday evening.

John Joe O’Toole will miss the fixture through suspension having picked up a red card against the Shrimpers. This was his second of the season and therefore he receives a four-match ban. Burton Albion appealed against Tuesday’s decision, but the appeal was rejected.

John Brayford (calf) and Oliver Sarkic (hamstring) who missed the mid-week fixture remain doubtful for the game.  Reece Hutchinson and Joe Sbarra (knee) both picked up knocks in the Southend game and will be monitored.

However, Nathan Broadhead is set to train this morning with Clough hopeful that he will play a part tomorrow.

LINCOLN CITY NEWS

The Imps sit 18th in the table going into the tie having won just one of their last six SkyBet League One fixtures.

Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton will be hoping his squad will be fit and raring to go after a break.

However, a hamstring injury to winger Bruno Andrade will see him out for up to 12 weeks.  There is hope that Michael O’Connor will be available after picking up a hamstring injury against Ipswich. Defender Michael Bostwick could make his first appearance under Appleton after back and calf injuries. After a long spell out, Lee Frecklington is yet to get back on the grass.
