Lincoln boss Appleton unlikely to make wholesale changes

Michael Appleton has opted against wholesale changes to his Lincoln line-up for Saturday’s League One clash with Gillingham.

Lincoln boss Appleton lamented his side’s defending in last weekend’s 4-3 loss at Accrington.

Appleton watched on as a host of fringe players were handed chances in a mixed Lincoln XI against Sheffield United on Tuesday.

The likes of Michael Bostwick could step up for Saturday’s Sincil Bank clash, but Appleton has moved away from widespread rotation.

Wing Jordan Graham could step up to start for a Gillingham side aiming to build on Tuesday’s 1-0 win at struggling Southend.

Wolves loanee Graham climbed off the bench to set up the winner for Conor Ogilvie in Tuesday’s slender victory.

And now the 24-year-old could force his way into the starting XI for Saturday’s Linconlshire trip.

Ogilvie should be looking to add to his fourth goal of the campaign, as he is likely to continue at left-back.
