MK Dons midfielder Peter Leven returns for the trip to Tranmere.
Leven missed the 1-0 win at home to Exeter last weekend with a one-match ban but will be back at Prenton Park.
On-loan QPR forward Angelo Balanta is still missing, though, as he serves the second game of a three-match suspension.
Captain Dean Lewington (knee) and former Germany international Didi Hamann (hamstring) have both joined in with some training this week but might not be ready for the weekend.
Winger Luke Chadwick limped through the end of the Exeter game with a knock and will be checked on Friday.
Midfielder Luke Howell will not feature after he became Steve Tilson`s first signing as Lincoln manager after agreeing a one-month loan deal.
