Match Preview – Lincoln vs Swindon

Last Updated: 10/08/18 1:24pm

Lincoln could hand debuts to Jason Shackell and Joan Luque against Swindon.

Former Premier League defender Shackell arrived at Sincil Bank on a one-year deal on Thursday while Luque signed from non-league side Heybridge Swifts.

Boss Danny Cowley must make one change from the side that beat Northampton last week after Luke Waterfall joined Shrewsbury, with Shackell likely to replace him. Sam Habergham is the only absentee as he continues his recovery from a thigh injury.

Right-back Kyle Knoyle is a doubt for Swindon. Knoyle picked up a hamstring injury in the Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Chelsea Under-23s in midweek and will be assessed.

If he does not make it, boss Phil Brown, who has no other fresh injuries, is tempted to switch to a back three. Marc Richards (shoulder), Kaiyne Woolery (knee) and Chris Robertson (ankle) continue to miss out.
