Lincoln winger Mustapha Carayol could return from a hamstring strain to feature against Bury on Friday afternoon.
The 21-year-old pulled up with the problem during the 2-0 defeat at Torquay on April 2 and has missed both Imps games since. However, Carayol will return to full training ahead of the Shakers clash and manager Steve Tilson admits his availability would be a welcome fillip.
"Mustapha is coming on nicely and I am hoping that he is back in training on Thursday," Tilson told This is Lincolnshire. "If he comes through unscathed, then while he won't be ready for a start, he could be available to start the game on the bench."
