Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson says Imps need to work on their attack
Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson said his side did not get forward quick enough in their defeat against Salisbury City.
City's 100 per cent record at Sincil Bank in the Skrill Premier came to an end this weekend when they were beaten 1-0 by the Whites.
It was a frustrating defeat for Lincoln, who went behind on 40 minutes as Chris McPhee headed in while unmarked from a corner.
City went on to dominate the possession, but failed to find the cutting edge they needed to level the scores.

And Simpson felt that there was not enough urgency.
"We've huffed and we've puffed, we've tried this, we've tried that, we tried everything," said Simpson.
"However, that little bit of quality we needed in the final third, we just couldn't get.
"We were guilty of being too slow. The build up was slow. We need to move the ball quickly.
"We moved it from one side to the other, but too often, rather than going forward, we went back.
"We kept possession, but to really hurt them we needed to get on the front foot."
More than 2,600 turned out to watch the game as the feel-good factor looked to be back at Sincil Bank following wins at home to Macclesfield, Forest Green Rovers and Wrexham.
However, in the end the fans were left frustrated and Simpson said he was disappointed to let them down.
"The support has been terrific," said Simpson. "They are coming out in their numbers and that's the disappointing thing, because we'd loved to have got them a result."
