Dons and Lincoln City will play the rearranged fixture at Sincil Bank on Tuesday night after a 10-day delay.

An outbreak of coronavirus at the Lincolnshire club forced the original fixture on Good Friday to be postponed. Russell Martin's side head to Sincil Bank in 14th, with one defeat in their last six having picked up a point at Ipswich on Saturday in a 0-0 draw.

Lincoln meanwhile sit fifth but are in the midst of a run which has seen them drop out of the automatic promotion fight since the start of February, winning just three in 13 outings. They drew 2-2 at home with Blackpool on Saturday.

The last meeting between the sides, back in September, was marred by a bizarre penalty decision, which saw Baily Cargill's clean tackle on Tom Hopper deemed a foul by referee Brett Huxtable. Jorge Grant converted from the spot before Joe Mason's second-half equaliser, but Hopper would have the last laugh to win it for the Imps in a 2-1 win.

Tuesday night will be the 12th meeting between the sides. Dons have claimed five victories since their first meeting in 2005, while Lincoln have won three times, with three draws.

Bobby Madley takes charge of the game at Sincil Bank, his 30th match of the season. The former Premier League referee has flashed 89 yellow cards and four reds. Robert Atkin and Alan Clayton will run the lines with Fourth Official James Bell.

Bookmakers have Dons at 19/10 to win, Lincoln are 7/5 and the draw is 5/2.
