Full coverage from the LNER stadium as Michael Appleton’s team want to keep first place in the premier league

Welcome to our coverage of Lincoln City playing Swindon Town at LNER Stadium (kick-off at 7 p.m.)

The Imps play at the top of the first division after the hard-fought 2-1 win at Wigan Athletic on Saturday

Swindon is just above the relegation zone but secured a 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra at the weekend

The Imps are sweating on the fitness of defender Adam Jackson and playmaker Jorge Grant, who both beat Wigan

Anthony Scully is unlikely to play a role at DW Stadium following a knee injury

Lincoln City trio Adam Jackson, Jorge Grant and Anthony Scully were all handed over for tonight’s home game against Swindon Town

All three were rated 50/50 after taking a blow in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Wigan Athletic Scully hobbled away with a knee injury before the break

TJ Eyoma comes in for Regan Poole as right-back, while Cohen Bramall, who replaced Scully at Wigan just before the break, starts ahead of Tayo Edun

Jorge Grant and Adam Jackson have doubts about the game, and Imps boss Michael Appleton rates their chances of playing 50/50

“They got hit over the weekend and we’ll have a better indication later today or tomorrow morning whether they’ll be available for tomorrow,” Appleton said

“The medical team tells me it’s 50/50. If they get through, great, if not we will pay very, very little because apart from Theo [Archibald recovering from a calf injury] we were on Weekend ”

“You got a fantastic result over the weekend against Crewe, a decent team that plays good football

“Because they got the victory as late as they did, they will come to us full of energy and excitement

“They will think that there is no expectation in them, all expectation will be on us to win the game”

“That makes them really dangerous, they are fighting for their lives and there is a lack of expectations of them”

Joe Walsh, Liam Bridcutt and Harry Anderson are definitely out, while Anthony Scully is unlikely to play a role following a knee injury against Wigan

Jorge Grant and Adam Jackson are rated 50/50 after both were hit over the weekend

The absence of Grant and Jackson would require a major reshuffle, and TJ Eyoma would almost certainly come to the side alongside Lewis Montsma in the heart of the defense

Without Scully, Brennan Johnson would likely be pushed back into the top three after his attacking midfield role against Wigan

Hence James Jones and / or Max Sanders could come in. Another option would be to push Tayo Edun into midfield, with Cohen Bramall coming in as left-back
