Team News

  • Having Lee Collins and Paul Digby in the same team as well as two centre-backs is perhaps too defensive to execute Forest Green's possession football, so deep-lying playmaker Lloyd James could come into midfield.
  • Dayle Grubb has been out with a knee problem but, after he and James Montgomery played for the reserves in midweek, both hope to be fit enough to feature on the bench.
  • Liam Shephard's potential return from injury would allow Carl Winchester to return to midfield.
  • Harry Anderson returns from a three-match suspension, but he might have to settle for a place on the bench due to Bruno Andrade's form on the right.
  • Technician Lee Frecklington has had fitness issues over February and may not return until the back-end of the campaign, so the tall Mark O'Hara could partner the experienced Michael O'Connor in midfield.
  • Sam Habergham is out for the long-term with a serious knee injury.

Prediction

  • Forest Green Rovers will remember, only too well, their trip to Sincil Bank for the reverse fixture, in which Reece Brown's midfield brilliance meant they controlled long periods of their clash with Lincoln City, but clinical finishing from their opponents meant a 2-1 defeat.
  • Although the result back in early November was not what manager Mark Cooper wanted, the performance against the leaders showed that his side have the tools to eventually become one of the best teams in this division; the defeat will only increase their hunger to get one over a club that many fans share a sense of rivalry with.
  • Lincoln City drew 1-1 with Exeter on Tuesday and the point, attained through John Akinde's 96th-minute equaliser, was perhaps slightly more than their performance deserved; despite being top of the league still, the Imps have only won one of their last six games.
