The club has captured some smart signings in the form of Tommy Doyle and Anel Ahmedhodzic and will be hopeful of making the most of this summer transfer window.
As for Lincoln City, their run in the final stages of last season was disappointing. In their last six matches, they could manage only two wins to go with a draw and three defeats.
