Lincoln expect to appoint a new manager "within the week" as the final round of interviews for the vacant post begin at Sincil Bank.

The Imps have drawn up a shortlist of "three or four" candidates according to vice-chairman Bob Dorrian, who is leading the hunt to find Peter Jackson's successor.

"The initial interviewing process is finished and we have a shortlist of around three or four people who we will be interviewing this week, with a view to making an announcement within the week," Dorrian told the Lincolnshire Echo.

Dorrian confirmed the club's next appointment would be a young manager and stated the process should be wrapped up before the eagerly anticipated home clash against Notts County on September 29.

He added: "Overall, the calibre of applicants this time round, as opposed to when we appointed Peter Jackson, has been a lot better.

"You have to bear in mind that there are a lot of high-profile managers who are out of work at the moment, good-quality people trying to get back into the game.

"We are after a young manager, someone with a point to prove. What we'll be looking for during the interview process is someone who shows an overwhelming desire to succeed."
