Ben Garner confirmed in his Friday press conference that he hopes to welcome back Chuks Aneke (calf) for Tuesday’s meeting with Exeter City - with Saturday’s clash also coming too soon for Aaron Henry (knee) and Diallang Jaiyesimi (ankle).

The Imps will check on the fitness of forwards Tom Hopper and Ben House, though centre-back Lewis Montsma (knee) is a long-term absentees.

Joe Walsh (calf) and Teddy Bishop (hamstring) will also be monitored.


Lincoln currently sit 15th in the League One table – a point and a place above the Addicks - and come into the contest boasting an unbeaten home league record this term.

Mark Kennedy’s side fell to a 2-0 defeat at Bolton Wanderers last time out owing to goals from Dion Charles and Jón Daði Böðvarsson either side of half-time. 


Charlton and Lincoln have gone toe-to-toe on 16 previous occasions with the Addicks winning eight, the Imps four and the remaining four clashes concluding in draws.

The last meeting between the two sides came at The Valley in April when the visitors claimed a 2-1 win. Strikes from Morgan Whittaker and Anthony Scully put Lincoln in the ascendancy and despite Jayden Stockley's late header, the Imps held on.


Robert Lewis will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in January – a 2-1 reverse at Crewe Alexandra.

Lewis will be assisted by Richard Woodward and Bradley Hall, while Abbas Khan is the Fourth Official.


The Addicks will be sporting their blue third kit in Lincolnshire.


Tickets will be available to purchase on the day from Lincoln’s Ticket Office.
