At his pre-match press conference before the game at home to Kidderminster, Simpson said: “It’s the worst conditions I’ve ever seen at a football match.”

He continued, “It was an eventful match but at the end of the day, the record books say we’ve got all three points and that’s all that matters.”

Simpson stressed that games like Hyde are always difficult when the conditions are bad saying, “When the conditions are bad, it’s more of a banana skin if you like.”

Conversation turned to this weeks game against Kidderminster with Simpson praising their team.

He said: “They’ve got some good players and it will be a tough game. We just need some consistency and we’ll try and get on the front foot against them.”

One topic on the tip of the tongue of Lincoln fans is the future of Sam-Yorke, the Cambridge loanee who has impressed greatly during his short time at Sincil Bank.

The man himself wasn’t keen to drawn on his future, saying: “I’m not sure about my future. It’s all up in the air and I’m keeping my options on the table.”

Sam-Yorke was asked: “Are you getting the impression we’d like you to stay?”

He laughed before replying: “It’s nice getting all the tweets from the fans but it’s still all up in the air.”

Gary Simpson was asked about Sam-Yorke’s future as well and said there’s an offer on the table if he wants it.

“We’re still talking to him, he’s in a strong position and he can decide what he wants to do”

He continued: “But as I keep telling Sam-Yorke, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”
