Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson revealed two players have already agreed to join the Imps this summer as he aims to increase the club’s goal tally.
Simpson said that he had given his word to the pair as he starts to add to his squad which are already contracted for next season.
And he explained that getting more goals was his priority when it came to recruitment.
“I made promises to a couple of people and I never go back on my word – ever. There will be a couple of people coming in because I have already agreed with them. That’s because I have given my word,” said Simpson, who did not reveal the names of the duo.
“It’s a couple that would benefit us. And we need goals. I want goals. I want people who can add to us. At this level they have scored goals. So I’m doing my best to try and bring them.
“I was in a game on Tuesday night and chatting to another manager and we were saying you are as good as your strikers in this division.
“Ben Tomlinson has scored 18, which is unbelievable. If we had got a few more of them then you think ‘where could that have taken you?’.
“We want to be better and try and improve. We have done that from the year previous. We want to do that again.”
