Barnet will be without Greg Southam and Anthony Pulis through suspension for the visit of Lincoln.

Southam starts a two-match ban after collecting a 10th booking of the season in midweek and fellow midfielder Pulis, a recent loan signing from Southampton, completes a three-game suspension following his debut red card against Torquay a fortnight ago.

Southam's absence could see striker Izale McLeod restored to the starting line-up alongside Steve Kabba.

Goalkeeper Liam O'Brien is missing with a hip injury so youngster Tom Coulton will on the bench as back-up to regular number one Jake Cole.

Defenders Daniel Leach and Darren Dennehy are still on the sidelines with foot injuries and forward Ricky Holmes is out for the season with a broken metatarsal.

Lincoln will be without Gavin Hoyte. The full-back, who is on loan from Arsenal, faces around a fortnight on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury during the 2-0 home defeat to npower League Two leaders Chesterfield last weekend.

City boss Steve Tilson could opt to play Julian Kelly at right-back in Hoyte's absence.

Clark Keltie is the only other definite absentee. The midfielder is still struggling with a thigh injury, despite a recent comeback, and will now be rested until he has made a full recovery from the problem.

Sunderland goalkeeper Trevor Carson and Notts County left-back Stephen Hunt remain available to Tilson after extending their loan spells at the club this week.
