Goal-hungry striker Tomlinson back to boost misfiring Lincoln
Ben Tomlinson insists he could be doing more to help lift Lincoln City up the table.
City have the second best defensive record in the Skrill Premier.
However, going forward Lincoln have the worst goalscoring record in the top half of the division.
Tomlinson has weighed in with five of the 16 goals netted by the Imps this season.

And, despite this making the 23-year-old the club's leading goalscorer, Tomlinson has said he has not been happy with his return.
"I'm a typical young lad that wants to be scoring more," said Tomlinson. "You can look at it and think I've got five goals and that's okay, but for me it isn't.
"I want to be on seven or eight by now.
"I'm conscious that I should have more goals. I also want goals from other areas, like outside the box."
Tomlinson was suspended for the Imps' 1-0 defeat at home to Aldershot last Saturday.
The former Alfreton Town man was watching the match from the stand as he sat the game out after picking up five yellow cards.
Looking on, Tomlinson felt City had plenty of opportunities against the Shots, but failed to make the most of them.
"It was frustrating," said Tomlinson. "We lost 1-0 and we needed to be more ruthless in front of goal.
"We created 10 times the chances they did and we only had to take two of them to win the match.
"Hopefully if I'm selected on Saturday then I will be able to make a difference in that respect."
Tomlinson missed the match after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 0-0 draw at home to Tamworth.
None of the bookings were for dissent, four were for bad tackles and one was for handball.
Despite serving a one-match ban early into the campaign, Tomlinson is refusing to drop the physical side of his game.
"I'm not changing how I play," said Tomlinson.
"I'm not overly fussed, I am a player who is rough and rugged and that's my game.
"I may pick up more cards, but I'm also determined to contribute more goals."
Tomlinson's next chance to rattle the opposition will come on Saturday, when City travel to Kidderminster Harriers.
The Aggborough side are second in the table and have only lost one less game than City who are tenth.
However, unlike Lincoln they have been held to only two draws.
"This division is so tight, you need wins, not draws," said Tomlinson. "I would sooner lose one and win one than be unbeaten with two draws.
"One point is not enough. If I'm selected on Saturday I will be going out there to get a win and three points."
