Hone suspended for Imps survival showdown
Danny Hone is suspended for Lincoln`s crucial clash against Aldershot at Sincil Bank.
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 while 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 for the encounter.
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.
Imps fate sealed by Shots
Lincoln were relegated from npower League Two after slipping to a 3-0 home defeat against Aldershot.
The Imps went into the final day knowing victory would ensure their safety, but they slipped a defeat which, coupled with Barnet's 1-0 victory, meant they fell out of the Football League.
Lincoln fell into the drop zone on 56 minutes when referee Jon Moss pointed to the spot after veteran Jamie Clapham brought down Jermaine McGlashan. Aldershot midfielder Danny Hylton sent Lincoln keeper Elliott Parish the wrong way and silenced the 7,000 home fans.
The home faithful started heading for the exit when Luke Guttridge burst through the heart of the Lincoln defence and blasted the ball past Parish on 69 minutes.
Imps manager Steve Tilson sent on former Middlesbrough striker Ben Hutchinson, but there was no way back for Lincoln.
Seventeen-goal striker Ashley Grimes blasted over during a rare Lincoln attack, but City were put out of their misery on 86 minutes when Guttridge added his second with a neat finish.
