WANDERERS will be without skipper David McCracken for tomorrow's visit from bottom-of-the-table Lincoln.

The former Dundee United centre half tore his calf muscle in last Saturday's FA Cup defeat against Swindon and is facing two weeks on the sidelines.

Will Antwi, Sam Stockley and Lewis Christon are all standing by to replace him.

Antwi had the third in his course of four sugar injections to strengthen his troublesome groin on Wednesday and Wanderers will assess his fitness before deciding whether to risk him.

He hobbled off in the game against Wrexham 11 days ago and wasn't fit enough to be considered for last Saturday's Swindon tie.

Boss Paul Lambert also has a big decision to make up front as he hunts a partner for Scott McGleish.

McGleish has operated alongside Reuben Reid and midfielder Sergio Torres in the last two games, but John Sutton gave the boss a reminder of what he can do with a goal for the reserves in the Berks and Bucks Cup on Tuesday.

Lambert said: "I left John out against Wrexham and Swindon because I wanted to go with the two guys who are really busy up front.

"I thought Scott was terrific for us on Saturday."

Lambert is still hoping to sign a striker on an emergency loan in time for the Imps' visit tomorrow.

He said: "It's a game we have to win and the onus is on us to get at them."

But he won't make the mistake of underestimating a Lincoln side who look likely to be without ex-Wanderers striker Mark Stallard.

He said: "Lincoln are fighting for their lives and they will give us a different challenge.

"Matches against teams at the top of the table generally take care of themselves, it's the matches against the teams down below that are dangerous.

"We are certainly playing well enough to win if we cut out the individual errors."
