Stevenage vs Lincoln preview
Last Updated: 07/12/18 4:07pm
Defender Luther Wildin and forward Danny Newton are ready to return to action in Stevenage's Sky Bet League Two clash with Lincoln at the Lamex Stadium.
The pair are back available to boss Dino Maamria after each being sidelined for the last three matches. Defender Ben Nugent is also able to make his comeback after serving a one-game suspension last time out, Boro's 3-2 loss at Swindon on November 27.
Forward Kurtis Guthrie will be missing again as he completes a three-match ban.
Lincoln are monitoring Josh Vickers after the goalkeeper underwent a scan on a thigh problem. Boss Danny Cowley has said he is not ruling out Vickers being involved this weekend.
Defender Sam Habergham is still out with the knee issue that has prevented him from making an appearance this season. Second-placed Lincoln head into the match having won only once - and lost once - in their last six league games.
In both of the two previous League Two campaigns in which Stevenage and Lincoln have met, one side did the league double over the other, Stevenage winning twice in 2010-11 before Lincoln won both encounters last season.
Stevenage's two home meetings with Lincoln in League Two have finished by a 2-1 scoreline, Stevenage winning in March 2011 and Lincoln triumphing by the same score in September 2017.
Stevenage have lost just one of their last seven league games at the Lamex (W5 D1), a 0-1 defeat to Crewe in October.
Lincoln have won just one of their last six league games (D4 L1), a 2-1 victory against Forest Green Rovers at the start of November.
Lincoln have scored more goals from set-piece situations than any other League Two side so far this campaign (13).
