Lincoln boss Chris Sutton will be forced to make at least one change to his starting line-up for the visit of Rotherham.

On-loan striker Delroy Facey has returned to Notts County. Sutton is trying to sign a replacement in time for the game but should he fail then youngster Lenell John-Lewis could be recalled.

Paul Green is rated at 50-50 after missing the draw at Darlington through injury and fellow defender Nathan Baker continues to struggle with the ankle problem that has ruled him out of the last two matches.

Matthew Saunders is working his way back to fitness following a fortnight out but this game may come too soon, while fellow midfielders Clark Keltie and Stefan Oakes are pushing for starts.

Rotherham will hope to have defender Dale Tonge available.

The right-back missed Tuesday's win over Dagenham with a foot injury picked up in the defeat at Darlington last Saturday.

That clash against the Quakers was Tonge's first start since November following a metatarsal injury and with the new problem occurring in the same foot, he has been sent for a precautionary scan.

If Tonge does not make it, Mark Lynch should continue to deputise at right-back following his admirable performance against the Daggers.

The win against John Still's men saw the Millers bounce back from back-to-back defeats against Bournemouth and Darlington and boss Ronnie Moore is unlikely to make many changes.

They go into the game six points adrift of the automatic promotion places, but with two games in hand and they travel to Sincil Bank having won there on their last two visits.
