Ebbsfleet United vs Lincoln City: Elder worry for fleet
Ebbsfleet striker Nathan Elder is a slight doubt for the game against Lincoln.
Elder scored in the 2-2 draw with Dartford last time out but has been carrying a slight ankle niggle which will be assessed before this game.
There are also still doubts over midfielder Ram Marwa and striker Moses Ashikodi. Both players have been out for several weeks with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
Midfielder Lanre Azeez is pushing for a start after coming off the bench at half-time against Dartford and he will compete with defender Jay Folkes for a place in the Fleet starting XI.

Defender Phil Walsh limped off with a knock in the Darts game and will face a late check.
Ebbsfleet have not won for six matches and manager Liam Daish is hoping to boost his squad with one or two signings in time for them to feature.
Newport County midfielder Jake Thomson will go straight into the Lincoln squad if his international clearance comes through in time.
Thomson has agreed a one-month loan deal with the Imps.
Lincoln have failed in their appeal against midfielder Adam Smith's sending off in the recent game against Grimsby and Smith will now serve a three-match ban.
Midfielder Conal Platt (leg) and striker Rob Duffy (ankle) are long-term absentees and will not feature while midfielder Gary Mills is also out with a knee injury.
Defender Peter Gilbert is another player to miss out as he is struggling with a groin injury while midfielder Mo Fafana remains side-lined with a hamstring injury.
Goalkeeper David Preece was forced off with a head injury early on in the 1-1 draw with Grimsby last time out and therefore Paul Farman may deputise between the sticks.
