Nathan Baker has extended his loan with Lincoln City making him eligible for the games against Accrington, Burton and Barnet.
The Aston Villa defender arrived at Sincil Bank in October and has gone on to feature eight times, only missing four games in the process.
The England Under 19 international will now remain with the Imps until 22nd January and will give manager Chris Sutton a welcome boost for the next three fixtures.
Meanwhile Sutton will have to make do without defenders Joe Heath and Eric Lichaj after the pair returned to their parent clubs Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa respectively.
Heath, who joined in August, only played five times having suffered with a hip injury while Lichaj made six appearances following his move in October.
