Lincoln could be boosted by the return of striker Andrew Hutchinson, midfielder Clark Keltie and defender Paul Green for the visit of Bradford.

The postponement of three league matches in the past 10 days might have given the trio time to regain full fitness.

Hutchinson has been suffering with a hamstring problem, Keltie has been nursing a thigh strain and Green has picked up a knock.

Delroy Facey could go straight back into the starting line-up. The striker has been on international duty with Grenada, who he helped to a fourth-placed finish in the Caribbean Cup.

However, defender Kern Miller will probably remain out with a broken nose and jaw.

Bradford central defenders Steve Williams and Shane Duff could feature at Sincil Bank.

Williams (groin) returned as an unused substitute in Tuesday's 4-0 defeat at Cheltenham and Duff (Achilles) travelled but was not included in the matchday squad.

Williams has been out since early November while Duff last appeared for the Bantams on October 2.

Winger Omar Daley missed the defeat at Cheltenham and remains very doubtful due to a knee injury sustained in training.

Midfielder Lee Hendrie is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up and striker Gareth Evans, who impressed in his first appearance in three months following a fractured wrist, is expected to retain his place in the side.

Bradford have won only one of their last four league matches and have slipped back down the table to 16th.
