Lincoln City sign Bristol Rovers striker Nathan Blissett on loan

Lincoln City boss Chris Moyses has added another striker to his armoury in Bristol Rovers’ frontman Nathan Blissett on loan until January.

Blissett has been with Rovers for 12 months and was part of the side that successfully gained promotion to League Two last season.

He becomes Moyses second loan signing in the space of a month after the arrival of Scunthorpe United striker Kyle Wootton at the beginning of November.

Imps fans may have a recollection of Blissett – he scored in Rovers 2-0 win over City back in February of last season.

The nephew of former Watford, AC Milan and England front man Luther, Blissett joined Kidderminster Harriers in the summer of 2012 having been a prolific striker in the Northern Premier First Division with Romulus.

The 25-year-old spent the early part of this season at the Imps’ National League rivals Tranmere Rovers on loan, where he scored once in five appearances.

The new man will have to battle with in-form strikers Matt Rhead and Liam Hearn and recent signing Wootton for a place in Moyses’ starting XI.

The striker will be with the Imps until January 4 and it’s yet to be confirmed whether he’ll be in the squad to face Welling United on Saturday at Sincil Bank.

According to the Bristol Post, the Imps will have the chance to make the move permanent should they wish to when his loan deal ends.
