PREVIEW: Lincoln City vs Ebbsfleet United

Lincoln City are looking to get back to winning ways against Ebbsfleet United at The 12th Imp Sincil Bank Stadium tomorrow.

The Imps slipped to a third successive loss last weekend with a 3-2 defeat against Macclesfield Town.

However, manager David Holdsworth was left to reflect on an impressive performance at Gateshead on Monday, which saw teenage substitute Conner Robinson salvage a deserved point a minute from time.

Tom Miller is unlikely to return after pulling up in the warm-up prior to the Macclesfield match, while his defensive partner Andrew Boyce is also doubtful after picking up a dead leg during the match.

Both players could also still be doubts for next Tuesday's home game against Alfreton Town.

Holdsworth will once again be without Adam Smith (hamstring) and Rob Duffy (ankle) and with Peter Bore only just back in full training, his options are limited.

This could improve if international clearance comes through to allow new signing Mamadou Fofana to be available for selection.

Kick-off is at 3.00pm with Jason Whiteley the match referee.

    Disappointed to see Josh go, but clearly no working relationship between him and DH. I don't think we ever saw the best of Josh following his loan, but you could not question his commitment and endeavour last season to try and turn around our form. I guess it's best for both parties and wish him well at Kidderminster. Would really like to see us attack Ebbsfleet today and play with Robinson & Taylor up top with Larkin in behind. I reckon he can play a pass or two and would love to see Robinson & Taylor feeding off him with pace rather than the 'big man' target which has been so ineffective of late.

    Just reading it myself sweepclean - no surprise though as holdsworth was never going to play him anymore - too much history me thinks. ...anyway here's to 3 points today and another on Tuesday - nothing less will do! C'mon you Imps!
