New Lincoln City manager Gary Simpson targets 12 points for safety
New Lincoln City manager Gary Simpson has said the club needs 12 points if they want to avoid relegation from the Blue Square Bet Premier.
Simpson believes his team is capable of getting the one point-a-game target before the end of the season.
However, tightening up the side's defence will be key to ensuring that goal according to Simpson.
"We need a point a game, that's the situation we are in," said Simpson.

"How we do that is down to two ways. You can add more firepower, or you can tighten up at the back.
"In my experience, it is cheaper to bring defenders in than it is to get a striker."
Simpson returns to Lincoln City having been assistant to Keith Alexander during the club's most successful period in recent years.
Alongside Alexander, Simpson helped lead the club to the play-offs in the season following their administration in 2002.
"Lincolnshire has been very good to me over the years," said Simpson.
"The Gaffer (Keith Alexander) and Richard Butcher are a big part of what happened here. I couldn't have lived with myself if I didn't come in and try and do something."
