Macclesfield Town Vs Lincoln City, Tue 15 Mar 2011

Next Story

Macclesfield manager Gary Simpson is boosted by the return of strike duo Ricky Sappleton and Emile Sinclair for the home clash with Lincoln.

The pair were sent off along with Wycombe's Dave Winfield during the stormy League Two encounter at Moss Rose, but have now completed three-match bans.

Striker Vinny Mukendi may return after spell on the sidelines with a knee injury but Simon Yeo remains sidelined with a similar complaint.

The Silkmen are in buoyant mood after Saturday`s 1-0 win at Northampton eased their relegation fears, yet Simpson is not getting complacent.

"We're not safe yet," he said.

"We go into Tuesday's match against Lincoln with three more points to play for and the players' confidence boosted by another good win."

Lincoln will have an unchanged squad for the trip.

The Imps incurred no fresh injury problems as boss Steve Tilson enjoyed victory against his former club Southend at Sincil Bank on Saturday.

Tilson has options should he wish to make changes with Paul Green, Pat Kanyuka, Jamie Clapham and Cian Hughton all pushing for starting berths.

Midfielders Gavin McCallum and Ali Fuseini as well as striker Scott Spencer, meanwhile, are also available for recalls.

Luke Howell (hamstring) and Clark Keltie are close to returning. The former has resumed training after four months out with a thigh injury but lacks match fitness.

However, on-loan full-back Gavin Hoyte has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury sustained against Chesterfield last month.
