Andy Hutchinson will miss Lincoln`s home game against Barnet through injury.
The young forward is nursing a foot problem after turning out for the reserves in midweek.
However, his absence is tempered by the return of Drewe Broughton while midfielders Gavin McCallum and Albert Jarrett also come back into the reckoning.
McCallum has returned to light training following a hip injury that has kept him out over recent weeks and Jarrett is back from international duty with Sierra Leone.
Adifane Noussoura is unlikely to be pushing for a starting role just yet but could be included in the squad and Mustapha Carayol will probably remain on the sidelines.
Barnet have been dealt a massive injury blow ahead of their trip to Sincil Bank.
Republic of Ireland Under-21 defender Darren Dennehy was forced off early on during last weekend's win over Cheltenham with a foot injury and taken to hospital.
Tests this week showed Dennehy has torn a ligament in his right foot and the Bees fear he will face an extended spell on the sidelines.
Boss Mark Stimson is likely to start with the XI that finished the 3-1 victory, with Daniel Leach moving across to replace Dennehy at centre-half and Jordan Parkes coming in at left-back.
Striker Phil Walsh, whose two goals last week helped the Bees to that all-important first win of the season, plays the last game of his loan spell from Dagenham although the clubs will hold talks over an extension.
