Simpson still searching for Vadaine replacement
A striker is still at the top of Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson's wishlist.
The Imps boss brought in 10 new faces over the summer and has said that he intends to add a target man to his line-up.
Simpson is still trying to replace Vadaine Oliver, who has joined League One side Crewe, but he is refusing to rush into any signings.
"I think the only thing we haven't covered is a big centre forward like Vadaine Oliver who can go and win us a header," said Simpson.

"They don't just fall off trees and cost you a few quid.
"We have left some money in the budget for it. But I was envisaging that when the pitches are nice we might not need one until late on in the season.
"I'm trying to keep my powder dry."
It means that Simpson will work with what he has got despite losing Nick Wright to injury.
The striker limped off during the first-half of the Imps' 1-0 win over Macclesfield on Tuesday with a hamstring injury.
However, Simpson believes he has enough options in his squad to replace Wright ahead of Saturday's home clash against Forest Green Rovers in the Skrill Premier.
"Wright has suffered a hamstring injury and these quick players seem to get them," said Simpson.
"Adi Yussuf did a lot of work this week having struggled with a hamstring problem himself and he may be back, which might compensate for the loss of Wright."
The three points on Tuesday night saw Lincoln ensure their best start in the league for six years.
However, Simpson feels there is more to come from his side as they prepare for the visit of big-spending Forest Green.
"I think we can do better," said Simpson. "You see the team in training sometimes and you think it is just a matter of taking it on.
"Sometimes in training, the way they keep the ball and the strikes they have, it is frightening how good it is. We just have to reproduce it on the pitch.
"If you were to ask me my best team now, I don't think I could tell you. The competition for places is that good.
"When they are all on form it will be tough to pick. We are still finding our feet."
