The injury crisis engulfing Lincoln City could deprive them of nine first team players for tomorrow's trip to Southport.
Already without captain Gary Mills, Mo Fofana, Peter Gilbert and Rob Duffy, Jake Sheridan (illness) and Scott Garner (knee) were added to the casualty list at the weekend.
Illness has also taken its toll on the squad which prompted Lincoln boss David Holdsworth to describe his preparations as "chaotic".
"It is an absolute nightmare," he said.
"We are already without a number of first team players while Jake and Scott picked up injuries at the weekend.
"But that's not the only problem, illness has been a worry too.
"I could be without nine players for Southport which would severely have an impact on us.
"But we'll go up there patched up and whatever team I put out I expect them to give it a real go."
