Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley has revealed he is looking to add two or three players to his squad next month.

In recent days, the Imps have been linked with former Dover Athletic and current Peterborough United striker Ricky Miller. The Imps are thought to be interested in the striker who fired Dover to the National League play-offs last season.

Speaking at his press conference earlier, Cowley denied that he was set to make a move for the Peterborough striker:

“We have spoken to Peterborough, not directly about Ricky but we’ve spoken about players who may or may not be available to us and that’s standard practice. We’ve done that to most teams in the Championship and League One.

“Ricky’s a very good player and we’re respectful of him but we;re respectful that he’s Peterborough’s player.”

The Imps are also set to lose star centre-half Sean Raggett after their SkyBet League Two clash with Luton Town.

The Gillingham born defender signed for Norwich City back in the summer but returned to Sincil Bank on an initial six month loan deal.

Cowley admitted that whilst losing a player of Raggett’s quality is a shame, the club cannot stand in his way to play at a higher level:

“We wish him well and with this [Forest Green Rovers fixture] potentially being his last home game, I’m sure everybody will get right behind him and give him a really good send off.

“I know how much he loves the club and the support. He’s thankful for the opportunities he’s had and obviously we’re thankful for what he’s done. You can’t replace Sean, not as a player or certainly as a person.

“It’ll be our biggest challenge to replace him and it’ll probably define us and our season. But we’ve got two games left and we should enjoy him as much as we can before he goes.”

Lincoln are also at risk of losing another centre-half in the shape of Rob Dickie. The Reading youngster has impressed in the red and white of Lincoln so far this season.

Dickie is a fan favourite to replace Raggett and Cowley admitted that his loan move may become a permanent one in the window:

“Rob’s a top player, he’s going to get better and better. He’s a young player, he’s still developing physically. He’s a talented boy and he’s been a pleasure to have in the building for the first half of the season.

“We would like to [make his move permanent]but again we’re respectful that he’s Reading’s player but certainly we would like it to if it was possible for us because we see him as a player with real potential.

“He’s going to be a top player and if we can play a part in that we would definitely like to.”
