Lincoln will be without Moses Swaibu and Luke Howell for the visit of Hereford.

Defender Swaibu must serve a one-match suspension after he collected his fifth yellow card of the season last weekend.

Howell has returned to MK Dons for treatment after the on-loan midfielder suffered a badly-gashed ankle at Morecambe that required eight stitches. He is set to be out for around a month.

With Howell absent, Clark Keltie`s return from suspension is a timely one and he is likely to go straight back into the side.

Striker Delroy Facey is also pushing for a recall after impressing from the bench at the Globe Arena.

Adam Watts has resumed training after an Achilles injury and the defender could come back into the squad.

Hereford will likely hand a debut to new loan signing Byron Webster when they make the trip.

The Doncaster centre-back is expected to partner Mike Townsend at the heart of defence with Ryan Green, who has been filling in since Tony James` return to parent club Burton, reverting across to full-back.

Forward Stuart Fleetwood returns from suspension having missed last weekend`s 1-1 draw against Cheltenham as a result of picking up a fifth booking of the season.

Otherwise, it is as you were for caretaker manager Jamie Pitman with midfielder James McQuilkin (hamstring), defender Janos Kovacs (shoulder), striker Guillem Bauza (groin) and goalkeeper Dan Connor (hip) still on the sidelines.

The clash at Sincil Bank is part one of a quickfire double header against Lincoln as the Bulls prepare to welcome Steve Tilson`s side to Edgar Street in the FA Cup next weekend.
