Setting the scene…
Tranmere Rovers head to Sincil Bank on Saturday afternoon for a Sky Bet League One fixture away at Lincoln City, kick-off 3pm.
Micky Mellon’s men visit Lincolnshire this weekend following on from last weekend’s 1-1 draw at home to Accrington Stanley in front of the Prenton Park crowd.
Standing in their way are an Imps side who were promoted alongside Tranmere last term.
Michael Appleton’s squad are four points and four places above Rovers in the third-tier following a 2-0 win at Burton Albion.
Three points for Tranmere on Saturday could move them up to 18th if results go their way.
Captain Scott Davies will miss the Lincoln clash after he sustained a calf injury against Accrington.
Mark Ellis, Evan Gumbs, Ishmael Miller, Harvey Gilmour and Ollie Banks all remain out.
Morgan Ferrier is also a doubt, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is back at Manchester United to receive treatment on a hip injury.
One to Watch
Forward Tyler Walker is Lincoln’s top scorer this season, with seven goals to his name so far.
Walker is currently on loan at Sincil Bank for the 2019/20 campaign from Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest.
The 23-year-old came through Forest’s youth system, and he has made 33 league appearances for the Tricky Trees since his debut in 2015.
Walker has since been loaned out from the City Ground, spending temporary spells at Burton Albion, Stevenage, Port Vale, Bolton Wanderers and Mansfield Town.
Walker linked up with Lincoln in August this year, ahead of the new campaign.
