Lincoln City vs Southport: Duo set to return for Imps
Recent signings Nat Brown and Tony Diagne are likely to return to Lincoln's starting XI for the game against Southport.
Both players were ineligible for the midweek defeat to Macclesfield due to the terms of their loan deals from the north-west club.
Midfielder Todd Jordan may also retain his place in the squad after being handed a brief cameo as a subsitute in midweek.
Striker Jamie Taylor, who has been warming the bench in recent games, is pushing for a start but Gary Mills left the club by mutual consent this week.

Mills had been ruled out for the season with a serious knee injury.
Fellow midfielder Dan Gray also misses out as he serves the final game of a three-match ban for a sending off against Mansfield.
Southport midfielder Godfrey Poku suffered a minor cut to his head during the 2-1 win against Cambridge in midweek but should be available for the game.
Defender Simon Grand will sit this game out as he serves the final part of a three-match ban for a sending off against Woking a couple of weeks ago.
Defender Steven Akrigg is out for the rest of the season with a serious shoulder injury while fellow defender Chris Lynch also remains on the sidelines as he recovers from a knee ligament injury.

Southport have only lost once in their last seven league games and are comfortably positioned in mid-table.
