March plans to rally support praised by Lincoln City manger Gary Simpson
Lincoln City manager Gary Simpson has praised efforts by fans to try and rally support for the club ahead of their must win game against AFC Telford tomorrow.
A group of Lincoln City supporters are planning to march from the Stownbow on the city's High Street to the club before kick-off to drive support for the Imps' relegation battle in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
City's match against bottom of the table Bucks comes after results in midweek dumped Simpson's side into the relegation zone.
And Simpson welcomes efforts by fans to make a difference.
"If some of those fans want to put on Dick Turpin masks and corral some members of public down to Sincil Bank tomorrow that would be brilliant," joked Simpson.
"Whatever they do, it's a great gesture of support and that is what we need.
"I know some fans might be staying away as this relegation battles is so soon after another one, but that's in the past. We need everyone to come together and show their support.
"It is a crying shame that this club is out of the Football League, so we must do all we can to make sure we don't drop any further."
Simpson stressed that he is also working around the clock to try and bring in new players.
However, only a few games left in the season, he likened the situation to the last days on the January sales.
"It's like turning up to the sales with the cash to spend, but all the good things have gone," said Simpson.
"The board have given me money, but players are in difficult situations.
"We have players stuck on season long loans, those that have had their deals paid up and cannot play again this season, it is hard.
"However, we have not given up and my people, contacts and myself are looking and working on it.
"In fact, I've been contacted by lots of players, but they want to come down in the summer. That's something which we cannot think about at the moment. We've got to get players in now."
