Lincoln'st Ben Futcher looks set to miss the rest of the season.Lincoln City have suffered a huge blow with the news that Ben Futcher looks set to miss the rest of the season.
Futcher fractured his cheekbone and eye socket during training and he will now need at least 10 weeks to recover.
The promotion chasing Red Imps will now have to cope without the highly rated Futcher for the rest of the season.
"It's a really nasty injury and I know all the lads wish him a speedy recovery," said Lincoln skipper Paul Morgan.
"He's a player we need in the side."
Midfielder Nathan Peat has also been sidelined for a month with a cartilage problem, but Northern Irish stopper Gareth McAuley is fit again.
