Stephen Hunt is an injury concern as Lincoln look to return to winning ways at home to Morecambe.

The defender, on loan from Notts County, did not reappear for the second half of the 5-1 defeat to Shrewsbury in midweek after complaining of a tight hamstring.

Manager Steve Tilson insists his players remain in high spirits despite their five-game winning run being ended by Tuesday night`s crushing defeat.

"The players are fine, they are just a bit tired," said Tilson. "We have had a lot of games in a short space of time and maybe that was a game too far for them."

Tilson has options should he wish to make changes, with Pat Kanyuka, Scott Spencer, Jamie Clapham and Drewe Broughton available for recalls.

Morecambe manager Sammy McIlroy is expected to have striker Jimmy Spencer available.

The rookie forward sustained a knock which forced him to miss the Shrimps' 1-1 draw at home to Aldershot on Tuesday.

However, he looks set to be passed fit to face the Imps as Morecambe bid to end a run of three successive draws with a victory at Sincil Bank.

Boss McIlroy said: "It is soul destroying for everyone at the moment because we are playing some good football but we need to be more ruthless in front of goal and keep our concentration for 90 minutes at the back."

Defender Paul Scott remains absent as he recovers from a knee operation.
