Lincoln City Vs Morecambe, Mon 5 Apr 2010

Lincoln will be without Scott Kerr when Morecambe visit Sincil Bank.

The midfielder collected his 10th yellow card of the season during the 1-0 defeat at Cheltenham and now begins a two-match suspension.

Incidentally, on-loan midfielder Chris Herd will face the same fate should he be booked against the Shrimps.

Kerr`s absence will open the door for either Richard Butcher, Shane Clarke or Clark Keltie to return to the side.

Nathan Baker made his comeback from injury as a second-half substitute against Cheltenham and the on-loan Aston Villa defender could force his way back into the starting XI. Young forward Lenell John-Lewis will also be hoping for a recall.

The defeat at Whaddon Road was a first in seven matches for Lincoln, who have lost just once at home in 2010.

Morecambe will be without suspended defender Andy Parrish for their trip.

Parrish was shown a straight red card for conceding a 73rd-minute penalty in Saturday's 4-3 win over Crewe and will therefore miss the game at Sincil Bank.

On-loan winger Simon Hackney is doubtful due to a back injury. Shrimps boss Sammy McIlroy opted to start with Hackney on Saturday, but the Colchester man was withdrawn in the 78th minute and replaced by Wayne Curtis.

Defender Will Haining is another doubt after being forced out of the action with a groin injury, so David Artell is again on stand-by.

Morecambe's 10 men hit back from 3-1 down with four minutes left to stun Crewe on Saturday and will be looking to close the three-point gap between themselves and seventh-placed Aldershot.
