Gary Simpson ready to be ruthless to save Lincoln City
Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson has not ruled out further changes as he tries to find the formula that will ensure the club's survival.
Simpson, who was named the new Imps manager last week following the sacking of David Holdsworth, has already made three additions to his team.
Nat Brown and Tony Diagne have joined from Macclesfield on loan while Todd Jordan is a result of Simpson's dedication to finding unheard-of talent.
And he is determined to keep on looking.

"We had to start at the back, and then we will look at other areas in the team," said Simpson, who is clocking up the mileage on his quest to find new talent.
"I drove to Oldham on Monday night and I was on the road again on Tuesday to have a look.
"I'd be delighted if I did not have to do it, but we are in a situation where we are conceding two goals and only scoring one.
"I brought in two defenders straight away and that has helped.
"Now it is a case of doing a bit more wheeling and dealing to help us."
New addition Jordan has been plucked out of the depths of the Northern Counties East League, the same division as Louth Town and Cleethorpes Town.
And while Simpson concedes that it is a big step up for the 21-year-old, he believes he will rise to the challenge.
"Todd is a player I've been keeping an eye on for some time and while it could well be a gamble bringing him in, he has joined us on little money so it's a gamble well worth taking," said Simpson.
"He can play in a number of positions and has a good left foot, which is always a bonus. "This is a chance for him to step up a level and stake a claim."
Jordan went into the squad for the Blue Square Bet Premier match at Macclesfield which was due to take place after the Echo went to print on Wednesday evening.
Both Brown and Diagne were not available for selection against their parent club, but are expected to return on Saturday when the Imps face Southport at home.
