Danny Hone is suspended for Lincoln.

The defender must serve a one-match ban following his dismissal for two yellows cards during the defeat at Oxford last weekend.

Winger Mustapha Carayol is still doubtful with a hamstring injury, but Jamie Clapham, Josh O'Keefe, Ben Hutchinson, Scott Spencer and Drewe Broughton are available for recalls should manager Steve Tilson feel the need to make more than the one enforced change.

Only a win will preserve Lincoln's Football League status and a draw combined with victory for Barnet would send City down.

Tilson said: "I must admit, there have been a few sleepless nights but now we just need to get on with it and get a result on Saturday.

"Obviously there is pressure, but the players have got to go and play and handle the occasion. I believe they can get a result."

Aldershot manager Dean Holdsworth has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Attacking midfielder Alex Rodman and striker Damian Spencer could return to the squad after being rested in recent matches.

Centre-back Douglas Bergqvist is set to be included again after being an unused substitute in last week's 2-2 draw at home to Rotherham, while fellow youngster Henrik Breimyr is also expected to come into Holdsworth's matchday 18.

Winger Adam Mekki could be in line for a start after appearing off the bench in the last two matches.

Defender Clayton Fortune will be hoping to keep his place after making just his third start for the club against the Millers.

The Shots continue to be without young striker Jack Randall, who remains sidelined with a broken leg.
