HE MIGHT be battered and bruised but Bognor’s number one is fighting to be fit for the Rocks’ crucial double header this week.
Dan Lincoln made national headlines when he shared images of his injuries sustained during last weekend’s 2-0 defeat to Truro City on social media.
The match was halted for more than 30 minutes as paramedics treated the keeper and made sure he sustained no long-term damage to his neck or spine.
But. after being taken from the ground on a spinal board, Lincoln was treated and appears to have made a full recovery in hospital – even posting images sat on a bed with a thumbs up on social media.
He is now in line to make his 100th appearance for the club tomorrow when the Rocks visit Chippenham Town.
Pearce, who visited Lincoln in hospital immediately after Saturday’s match, said: “He’s bruised but at least nothing is broken and he should be fit for Saturday. At the time, you can’t afford to take risks as he took a hell of a clattering.
“He’s improving every day and, if he continues to make the progress, he has done so far he will be available for the weekend.”
