Imps Injuries Mount Ahead Of Plymouth Tie
Paul Farman sustained a knee injury during the week that cost him his place against Welling United and with Plymouth Argyle on the horizon the Imps injury woes have mounted during the last week. Keeper coach David Preece was more than competent against Welling and would not let the Imps down should he be required to deputise.

Connor Robinson sustained a horror challenge that has thankfully led to just bruising, but Todd Jordan – coming into his own over the last 3-4 games – is carrying a hernia that will require an operation. He battled on yesterday and should be able to play against the Pilgrims, although Connor is unlikely to feature.
The talented Danny Rowe is still sidelined with an ankle issue that sees swelling whenever he tries to run on it in training. The Imps have missed him although hopefully he could be back for a tough run in the League during November. Lincoln face Southport and Forest Green away, before home games at in-form Alfreton and Hereford who beat us thanks to a poor example of refereeing. Rowe could be the difference between three points and ten from those four games.
Adi Yussuf does appear to be over a career threatening complaint that leads to pain and strains, but he needs match fitness in order to be considered. The Manager has been hampered in his attempts to get him a loan due to The FA Trophy competition. According to Simmo there are two rounds coming up meaning the player might only get just the one outing when a 3-4 week loan really needs to see him endure 360 minutes on the pitch.
