Jacko to sign contract today?

Last updated : 30 January 2009 By Gary Hutchinson

BBC sport reported on Tuesday that Peter Jackson has said he will hold talks with chairman Steff Wright today.

Jacko verbally agreed a fresh 2 year deal back in September, but stalled on signing it until results picked up. Despite a Manager of the Month award in October he didn't sign, prompting some supporters to claim he was waiting for a betetr offer elsewhere.

However he told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "The contract will be signed and it needs to be sorted out sooner rather than later. Hopefully by next week there will be some movement there."

Jacko failed to win a single game in November and a news conference which seemed to be planned to announce his signing of the contract was cancelled. Since then speculation has been rife among fans as to when and if Jackson would put pen to paper.

Lincoln are currently 11th in League two, seven points adrift of the play-off places after the excellent 2-1 win at Gillingham on Tuesday. With Bournemouth and Macclesfield to visit the Bank in the space of four days, this time next week Lincoln could be right back in the mix.
