Double defensive boost for Imps

21 April 2011 01:00
Defenders Adam Watts and Cian Hughton are expected to be fit for Lincoln`s trip to Bury. Watts missed the draw against Crewe due to a sickness bug while Hughton is also due to return to the squad after boss Steve Tilson described him as "not mentally right" to play at Gresty Road. The news is a welcome boost for Tilson after on-loan duo Stephen Hunt and Julian Kelly returned to their parent clubs. "Adam and Cian will be fine for this weekend, while Mustapha is also coming along nicely," said Tilson. "There's no doubt I need some extra bodies, especially after Julian and Stephen went back. "Defensively we are a bit short on numbers so to have them two available will help us out a great deal." Winger Mustapha Carayol could also come back into contention after missing the last two matches with a hamstring injury.
