Tames back in the flow for Southport Southport could be boosted by the return of striker Stephen Tames as they look to chalk up back-to-back wins against Lincoln.
The Sandgrounders recorded an impressive 3-1 win at Telford on Saturday without the first-team regular who suffered from a virus over Christmas.
Godfrey Poku returned as a second-half substitute after illness ruled him out of the New Year's Day clash at Macclesfield.
Young defender Liam Willis was rested against Telford while Andy Owens' loan stay from Mansfield has been extended until the end of the season.
Arron Chalmers remains out with the leg injury he sustained in December.
Southport travel to face a Lincoln side just one point above them in the Blue Square Bet Premier looking to end a winless run of four games against the Imps.
Lincoln head to the Merseyrail Community Stadium without right-back Peter Bore who left the club on Monday.
The former Grimsby defender, who made 23 appearances since joining from Harrogate Town, reached an agreement with manager David Holdsworth over the remainder of his contract.
He becomes the fourth player to leave Sincil Bank this month, meaning Holdsworth's side almost picks itself.
New loan signing Jake Thomson, who made his Imps bow against Ebbsfleet, is set to feature again while Paul Farman looks likely to continue in goal.
Conan Platt returned to the matchday squad on Saturday for the first time in 11 months and could take his place on the bench once more.

Grand double sees Sandgrounders home Southport recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season as they crushed Lincoln 4-2.
The hosts took the lead after 18 minutes when Simon Grand rose highest to head home Shaun Whalley's corner.
Grand added his and the Port's second five minutes later, nodding in another delivery from Whalley.
Victory looked all-but ensured when Andy Owens fired in a stunning drive from 35 yards just after the half-hour mark.
City managed to pull a goal back through Jamie Taylor after 37 minutes as he produced a neat finish inside the box.
But Karl Ledsham added further gloss for the hosts 13 minutes from time with a smart finish from 12 yards after some good work by Owens.
