Sam Smith

Smith is Lincoln City's leading scorer this season

Lincoln City could be without striker Sam Smith for the rest of the season after he broke a bone in his foot.

Smith, 21, who is the Imps' leading scorer with nine goals, was injured in their 2-0 Blue Square Bet Premier victory over Southport.

"It doesn't look good," manager David Holdsworth told BBC Lincolnshire . "Sam has a fracture and is in a cast.

"I can't see him being back too quickly and first indications are that he'll be out for the rest of the season."
