Lincoln have a lengthy list of concerns ahead of the visit of Stevenage.
Scott Kerr is definitely out as the midfielder begins a three-match ban following his red card in the defeat at Accrington a week ago.
Defenders Paul Green and Ian Pearce (ankle) and midfielder Clark Keltie (thigh) are major doubts while forwards Delroy Facey (bronchitis), Ben Hutchinson and Drewe Broughton (ankle) are slight concerns.
Broughton will hope to shake off his knock as he feels he has not played to his potential so far this season.
He told BBC Lincolnshire: "I haven't hit my own form and it is disappointing. But all you can do is roll your sleeves up, keep working hard and not hide.
"That is what I intend to do and I think we all have to do that."
Stevenage manager Graham Westley could hand new signing Chris Holroyd his debut.
The striker has joined on a three-month loan from Brighton and may even go straight into the starting line-up.
Stacy Long is likely to keep his place after returning from suspension and Peter Winn is pushing for a first-team start after scoring on reserve duty in midweek.
Westley has doubts over Joel Byrom after he was replaced just 14 minutes into the reserve game against Southend in midweek after suffering a head injury.
Darren Murphy is definitely not considered after breaking a leg and Chris Beardsley still hasn't recovered from a dislocated shoulder.
