The Town boss started with the team news and reported that there are no new injury concerns - Leeds United loan forward Mallik Wilks may come back into contention.

Jolley confirmed that on-loan forward Charles Vernam will miss the rest of the season through injury. He said: "He’s got a knee injury that requires some surgery, so he’s going to remain with Derby. He’s going to pop back and be around us a little bit, I think he’s actually coming to the game on Saturday.

"He’s a popular member of the squad, so we’ve said we’d like to see him around the group whenever we can, but in terms of his fitness, he probably won’t feature for us again this season, which is sad because from the games that I saw, Charles was excellent and was a player I was looking forward to working with."

On City.

Jolley said: "They’re a very good team. What Danny, Nicky and everybody at Lincoln has done over the last couple of years is remarkable in many ways, and I’ve got a lot of respect for them.

"They’re a strong team, they’ve got a very well established and distinct style of play that they execute very well. It’s up to us to respond to the challenge and come up with ways for us to hurt them as well.

I’m looking forward to taking the challenge on, it’s going to be a big game, and that’s you come into football for these big occasions.”
