Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson wants his team to keep improving
Gary Simpson is refusing to put pressure on his players by remaining tight-lipped over Lincoln City’s promotion chances this season.
The Imps boss has guided his team to their best start in recent years and they could move back into the play-off places tomorrow if they beat second-placed Nuneaton in the Skrill Premier.
And while the success has raised expectations in some quarters, Simpson is determined to make sure his team stay focused on the task at hand.
“I’m not putting any pressure on the players,” said Simpson. “They have come a long way. At times it can get to the players.

“One minute we can lose a couple of games and it’s a ‘crisis’, then we win a game and it’s the ‘play-offs’, it is ridiculous. We’re 12 games in, we’ve done okay, we would like to do better and we will keep trying to do better.”
Simpson is confident his team can do well, but believes the club needs to take the season one step at a time.
“It’s common sense, we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves because that will come back to bite you in the backside,” said Simpson
“We are a close knit group. They work hard for each other. In terms of budgets they are punching well above their weight. They don’t fear anybody and they are right not to fear anybody because on their day they can beat anybody.
“It’s the consistency level that the top teams get that go on to win promotions or get in the play-offs.
“We don’t know where we are yet. If we can get another 20 points in the next 12 games then we can see that consistency is coming along.
“We will take the games up to Christmas as one season, and then from there we will take the games after that as another season.”
