Lincoln City boss Chris Moyses given reassurances on his managerial position by Chairman Bob Dorrian

Chris Moyses says he’s received a vote of confidence from Bob Dorrian as he prepares to revitalise the Imps’ fading fortunes.

The Lincoln City boss stated he would “walk away” if he didn’t feel he was the right man for the job, after the 1-0 home defeat to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

However, Moyses came out fighting at Thursday’s press conference, saying he has full belief in his players and that they can halt their winning drought, starting this weekend away at Wrexham.

He said: “This job means a lot to me. I put my heart and soul into it every day of every week.

“The chairman has told me that he’s got 100% faith in me and it’s a blip. We’ve played some decent football and we will turn the corner very shortly.

The Imps’ form dropped considerably over the festive period, and they’ve began January in similar fashion with consecutive defeats at home to Dover Athletic and Forest Green.

This culminated in a passionate and emotional post-match interview given by Moyses after the defeat last Saturday, which ultimately led to speculation about his future as City manager.

Despite that, the Imps boss believes they just need a bit a luck to turn their barren spell around.

“If you look at the Xmas period, Halifax were unbeaten in ten [matches], we played a team who are second in the league, we played a team that’s third in the league and we’ve given good accounts of ourselves.

“Apart from Boxing Day [at home to Halifax] where I thought we were below par, I’m quite happy with the way we are playing. I realise that ten games without a win is a long time but it won’t last forever.

Moyses also revealed that Jack Muldoon is among a number of players who are poised to sign contract extensions at Sincil Bank.

The right-sided midfielder has impressed over recent weeks and the City boss is delighted to be able to tie the former Rochdale man down for a few more years.

“Jack’s a great lad and a great player, he works hard and he’s very committed to the club.

“If you look at the way the lads are when they’re defeated, they collapse to the floor. They are a great group and Jack typifies what they’re about.”
