Lincoln City manager Peter Jackson has been told by doctors that his treatment for cancer has been successful.

Jackson revealed in February that he had been diagnosed with throat cancer and began radiotherapy in March.

He will have to undergo regular check-ups over the next five years to ensure that he does not relapse.

He told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "It's really good news. It's not like I'm perfect, I still have to be careful but I'm heading in the right direction."
