We'll Stand Up And Be Counted

That's the message from Tom Pett ahead of the SkyBet League Two Playoff Semi Final against Exeter City.

Pett's equaliser was enough to settle the draw against Yeovil at Sincil Bank on Saturday, which sealed the Imps' place in the League Two play-offs and is optimistic that Lincoln can continue to be as successful as they have done in the Checktrade Trophy this season

"I don't think any team will want to play against Lincoln." Pett said after scoring his first goal in Imps' colours against The Glovers.

"I remember when I was at Stevenage, it was like: 'Oooh, we've got Lincoln this week'. You don't want to play against Lincoln. The atmosphere at Sincil Bank and the way we play, it's hard to play against. I'm sure Exeter won't be looking forward to playing against us and we'll need to use that in our favour when we come to playing them", he said.

"The gaffer said before the game how many big cup games Lincoln has had in the last two years and seem to come out on top in the majority of them. That just shows the spirit the changing room have got. Big players in there and when the time comes, we'll stand and be counted and that's what we need to do in the remainder of the games."

Pett is aware of what Exeter City can do and the importance of being prepared going into the two-leg play-off semi final:

"They're a very good team. We give them the respect they need but we'll go in with a game plan. I'm sure Danny and Nicky Cowley are ready with their game plan. Hopefully we'll have a better game plan and come out on top," Pett said.
