The Imps will take to the field for the game in what will be their first appearance since their FA Cup quarter final defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

Danny Cowley's men will take on York at Bootham Crescent in the FA Trophy semi final first leg later.

A 14-year-old boy is in a critical condition in hospital after collapsing during a national kickboxing competition.

The teenager needed urgent medical attention during an English title fight in Leeds on Saturday.

He is believed to be a member of Marsden's All Styles Kickboxing in Sheffield.

The club posted a statement on Facebook on Sunday, which said training was cancelled until further notice.

Everyone is still in shock as there were simply no signs to suggest the fight needed to be stopped.

The referee stepped in to protect Scott as soon as he could, which meant Scott did not hit the canvas and was laid down and straight into recovery position.

Scott was then taken to hospital to undergo tests and scans, where he is stable but not out of the woods.

The family of the boy are at the hospital and have been spoken to by officers.

Inquiries are being carried out into the circumstances.
