Lincoln City boss Gary Simpson was delighted his side managed to grind out a point against Skrill Premier leaders Luton Town at Sincil Bank.

The Imps dug in hard to battle out a 0-0 draw, with both sides having chances to earn the win on Saturday.

And Simpson felt that it was fair result in a game that was played out on a boggy pitch.

“The lads have worked extremely hard over the last few games. Luton have a good record, so it was a good result to get,” said Simpson.

“I thought it was a good game, both teams had a go and I felt we were worth a point.

“If someone was going to win it, it would be by the single goal.

“With a good team like Luton, you always think that towards the end of a game when a team like that has a few corners that they can come up and nick the points. However, I thought we defended as a team magnificently.

“We had one or two good chances. Nat Brown went close with a good header and the new lad, Delano Sam-Yorke, also had a good effort on the turn that went just over.

“We know we need wins, and it’s not for the want of trying. It seems the only luck we’ve had this season is bad luck. If it turns a little bit then who knows, we might just go on a bit of a run.”

Simpson handed debuts to his two new signings, striker Delano Sam-Yorke and winger Mitch Austin.

The pair had both signed loan deals from Cambridge United, and the City boss was pleased with the impression they made.

“The new lads gave us that little bit of impetus and it meant we could also rest one or two,” said Simpson

“Sometimes with new signings it’s not just about what impact they make, it’s the impact they make on the others. All of a sudden the players are looking over their shoulders.

“I’m hoping to get one or two more in and bolster the squad a bit more and then we will move on again.”
