Ipswich duo are doubtful for FA Cup meeting with Lincoln

Ipswich captain Luke Chambers and midfielder Cole Skuse are both doubtful for the FA Cup third-round tie against Lincoln because of knee problems.

Left-back Myles Kenlock has been carrying a calf problem, so will be assessed. Dean Gerken is set to start in goal rather than first-choice Bartosz Bialkowski, while 17-year-old forward Ben Morris could be named on the bench.

Midfielder Paul Digby is back in training following a knee injury, while defender Tommy Smith has stepped up his rehabilitation following back surgery as have Teddy Bishop (ankle) and midfielder Luke Hyam (knee).

On-loan Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams (shoulder) and Giles Coke (knee) remain out.

Republic of Ireland Under-21 defender Sean Long is set to make his Lincoln debut.

The full-back has joined on loan for the rest of the season from Reading, who have given him permission to play in the cup.

Elliott Whitehouse returns from the one-match ban which saw him miss the New Year's Day win over Guiseley.

The Imps are still without Lee Beevers who suffered a serious knee injury in October.
