Crawley boss Gabriele Cioffi missing Ibrahim Meite
Crawley boss Gabriele Cioffi will be without suspended strikerIbrahim Meite for his side’s home game against Lincoln.
Meite received a straight red card after stepping off the bench in last week’s 6-1 defeat at Crewe, while Cioffi could be tempted to make several other tactical changes.
Winger Luke Gambin remains sidelined after missing the last six games due to a hip problem.
Midfielder Jimmy Smith, restricted to three appearances this season after sustaining a knee injury in September, remains a long-term absentee.
Lincoln’s experienced pair Lee Frecklington and Jason Shackell both hope to return to action.
Midfielder Frecklington has been sidelined with a groin strain and defender Shackell has recovered from a hamstring problem.
Boss Danny Cowley has no new injury or suspension concerns following last week’s draw at Mansfield.
Midfielder Tom Pett is among those pushing for a recall, but Cowley could name an unchanged starting line-up.
