Lincoln vs Forest Green preview
Last Updated: 03/11/18 10:46am
Lincoln could have club captain Lee Frecklington available for their match against Forest Green.
Fecklington has missed a number of games through injury but was named on the substitutes bench for the previous game against Colchester despite not being ready to play.
Right-back Neal Eardley could also return for Lincoln, after the experienced player missed the Colchester loss with a calf strain. Ellis Chapman will be unavailable for selection as he will be serving the final match of his three-match suspension after a red card against Cambridge.
Reuben Reid could make a welcome return for Forest Green after returning to training for the past three days. Rovers manager Mark Cooper said the whole team was fit and everyone trained, adding he had a full squad to choose from.
Reid had been injured with a medial ligament injury suffered in October, but appears to have come back ahead of schedule and could be in line to start. Farrend Rawson returns from suspension to be available for selection for Forest Green.
Lincoln won both of their two league games against Forest Green last season - the only Football League encounters between the two clubs.
Forest Green's last victory against Lincoln came in the National League - winning 3-1 at home in August 2015.
Lincoln have failed to win their last three league games (D2 L1) having failed to win just three of their opening 13 league fixtures (W10 D1 L2).
No side has drawn more games across the top four tiers of English football so far this season than Forest Green Rovers (9, level with Mansfield).
Forest Green Rovers (15) have lost more points from winning positions than any other League Two side so far this campaign.
Lincoln are top of Sky Bet League Two but are suffering their first mini dip in form of the season, having failed to win in their last three and losing at Colchester last week.
Forest Green are closing back in in the top three after winning their last two games and will provide a stern challenge at Sincil Bank. Score draw for me.
David Prutton predicts: 2-2 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
