Lincoln City Vs Bournemouth, Sat 10 Apr 2010

Published Add your comment

Lincoln have several injury concerns ahead of the visit of promotion chasing Bournemouth.

Steven Lennon has been out for a month with an ankle problem and boss Chris Sutton rates the on-loan Rangers midfielder at 50/50 to make a return.

Sutton also revealed that a handful of unnamed players were nursing knocks following the Easter fixtures.

He said: "As well as Steven Lennon, there are three or four others we will have to look at because at this stage we don`t know whether they have strains or whether it is tiredness."

Richard Butcher, Lenell John-Lewis and Paul Connor are available for recalls should Sutton need to freshen up his starting line-up.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe welcomes back Jeff Goulding.

The striker may have to settle for a place on the bench, though, after returning from a three-match ban.

Lee Bradbury is definitely out for the Cherries after picking up an ankle ligament injury in Monday`s clash with Rochdale, while Ryan Garry (knee) is rated 50/50 after being forced off against Dale.

Sean Cooper (knee) could play if needed but is unlikely to be risked by Howe, who played no first-team players in Thursday`s reserve match against Swansea.

Midfielder Anton Robinson is expected to play an unfamiliar right-back role so Sammy Igoe looks set for a starting berth in midfield, while Jason Pearce will again start after coming through Monday`s match unscathed.
