The team news is in at the People's Pension Stadium and Danny Cowley makes one change to the side which started in the draw at Mansfield Town on Monday evening.
Tom Pett comes into the line up against the Red Devils with Michael O'Connor moving to the substitutes bench. Neal Eardley captains the side again in the absence of Lee Frecklington in the starting XI.
The hosts make two changes bringing in Panatuche Camara and Bondz N'Gala, with Ibrahaim Meite one of the players to miss out due to being shown a red card in their defeat at Crewe Alexandra last weekend. Former City striker Ollie Palmer lines up against The Imps with Manchester United loanee Matty Willock also in the starting XI for the hosts.
