Gary Simpson delivers word of warning before Lambs encounter
Lincoln City must be ready for a stern test from Tamworth says Gary Simpson.
The Lincoln City boss delivered the warning ahead of tonight’s Skrill Premier clash at Sincil Bank. With a win and a draw behind them, Simpson says his side is confident and he hopes to continue their solid start to their campaign.
But his optimism was cooled with a word of caution for expectant home fans.
“It will be a tough game,” he said. “Tamworth have had some decent results away from home. To be honest, in the summer they recruited pretty well and signed some good players.

“They have a keeper (Cameron Belford) who kicks it an absolute mile. He’s not the biggest, but he’s certainly a good keeper and he has played a lot of games in the Football League.
“They are physical, they have two big centre halves, we know they have two massive long throws that they pin you in with and a couple of good strikers.
"They have had some tough fixtures against a lot of the top teams so we are expecting a tough game.”
Simpson allayed fans’concerns about striker Nick Wright who was withdrawn after an hour of Saturday’s visit to Nuneaton, insisting the frontman was just suffering from cramp and will be available for tonight’s home fixture. However, fellow frontman Danny Rowe may not be so fortunate.
“Danny trained on Friday and did quite a bit of work,” said Simpson. “He can do stuff on his ankle but it does swell up a little bit.
”We are going to pick injuries up and suspensions and the whole squad is going to be needed. You need a squad and we think we have a decent one.”
