Gary Simpson believes Lincoln City have set an example at Barnet
Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson has told his players they can be a 'match for anybody in the divison', following their hardworking 1-1 draw at Barnet in the Skrill Premier.
The Imps boss saw his team battle back from a goal down to snatch a late equaliser in the depths of injury time on Saturday at the Hive.
And afterwards he felt the side had shown great composure, especially going into the match on the back of a drab 1-0 defeat at home to Salisbury.
"I can't fault these boys. They slipped up last week against Salisbury, but they worked hard in training and they worked hard this week," said Simpson.

"We're trying to teach them how to play different situations in games. To be fair to them they are taking it in like a sponge and they are learning.
"I told them afterwards 'you keep playing like that you will be a match for anybody in this division'."
Simpson was also full of praise for the Lincoln City supporters who made the journey down the A1 to support his team.
There was more than 300 fans packed into a low terrace who nearly ripped the roof off when Jon Nolan scored the equaliser in front of them with seconds left to play.
"Lincoln is a fantastic club with fantastic supporters," said Simpson. "We might not be the biggest financially these days, far from it. But we are certainly putting together a team that will give their all like they have done today."
