Louis Reed to miss out for Chesterfield against Lincoln

Chesterfield will be without the suspended Louis Reed against Lincoln.

Reed, who has started more Sky Bet League Two games than any other player at the club this season, was booked for the 10th time against Swindon and must serve a two-match ban.

Robbie Weir is not an option to replace Reed in midfield as the Spireites skipper suffered a knee injury during that home win over the Robins and he will be out for another two to three weeks.

The postponement of last weekend’s trip to Exeter will prove beneficial, giving the likes of Giles Coke, Brad Barry and George Smith time to recover from the knocks they have been carrying in recent weeks.

Lincoln will also be without their captain as Luke Waterfall is suspended.

The defender was sent off late on in the draw at Mansfield in midweek and he will begin a three-match ban on Saturday.

Waterfall’s absence will be felt as fellow centre-back James Wilson has been sidelined for the last month with ankle ligament damage, although he is nearing a return.

Imps boss Danny Cowley could opt to play the versatile Michael Bostwick alongside Scott Wharton in the heart of the back four.
