ONE TO WATCH:

Lee Frecklington completed a stunning return to Lincoln earlier this month and he's already showing why he has spent so much of his career in the Championship.

The cultured midfielder has got an eye for a pass and the ability to contribute goals and assists, but his work-rate is also exemplary and he'll be relied upon to get Lincoln ticking tomorrow.

LINCOLN CITY - Matt Green (9)

SWINDON TOWN - Luke Norris (12)

TEAM NEWS:

LINCOLN CITY will be without goalkeeper Josh Vickers who is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

However, The Imps could hand debuts to new signings Tom Pett, Scott Wharton and Ryan Allsop who all arrived on Transfer Deadline Day.

SWINDON TOWN have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the weekend and new signing Rollin Menayese, who arrived on loan from Bristol Rovers on Transfer Deadline Day, could be involved in the squad tomorrow.

Chris Hussey and Donal McDermott have both suffered set-backs in their road to recoveries, while Amine Linganzi is on course to return to action by the end of the month.

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:

Danny Cowley, Lincoln City Manager: "It is another big game and it is the middle game of our three-game home run.

"It will be a tough game and Swindon have got an unbelievable record away from home - they've got the best away record in the league.

"They are on a good run of form, they've added some good players in this window and we're expecting a real tough game."

Dave Flitcroft, Swindon Town Manager: "They are a direct and robust team and that is what Danny (Cowley) has built.

"They will have ten thousand fans and they've got the siren which goes off every time they get forward.

"We know what we are in for and it will be one of the toughest battles of the season.

"We will prepare the team for that and make sure they are ready for it."
