Lincoln midfielder Jorge Grant was disappointed not to pick up any points as the Imps lost 1-0 to Oxford United this afternoon.

The 25-year-old believes his side didn’t deserve to lose as they travelled to the Kassam Stadium on Boxing Day: “I think it’s really disappointing that we didn’t take anything from the game because I don’t think we played badly today.   

“We limited them to shooting from outside the box but obviously that’s how they got their goal, we have come to their place and had the majority of the ball so like I said, I’m disappointed we haven’t come back with anything.”

Grant continued by discussing his sides performance explaining how they will continue to work hard on the training pitch.

“I think in the build-up to the final third we were very good, it’s just the final touch, the final pass or final shot which is letting us down,” said Jorge.

“That will come eventually, we are working hard on the training pitch and we will get there.

“We haven’t got any bad eggs because everyone works well for the team and does their bit when they’re needed. We will need everyone over the next couple of games and I’m sure everyone will get their chance.”

The midfielder went on to say how he is happy to play anywhere following a spell in centre midfield today.

“It’s up to the gaffer but when Micky (O’Connor) comes off it’s easy for me to go into midfield because I have played there a lot," said the 25-year-old.

"I’m happy to be on the pitch so I don’t mind where I play.”

Grant finished by focusing on Sunday’s game against Ipswich Town at LNER Stadium, explaining how he is looking forward to hopefully picking up three points at home.

“We have already played them twice so it will be a good game, I’m looking forward to it,” said Jorge.

“They have some good individuals and hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves. We have played well against them in the past and hopefully, we can get three points against them at home."
