Joe Morrell was ecstatic to pick up three points at LNER Stadium as Lincoln ended the decade by beating Ipswich Town 5-3.

The Welsh international expressed his emotion at full-time, describing the football club as a special place.

“I think every player had the same emotions as every supporter today and that’s how it should be. This football club is very special because it is as one and it’s days like today that makes us give our all on the pitch every week,” said Morrell.

The midfielder continued by discussing City's performance: “We have been threatening for a while and everything clicked today but there are still things to improve on to make it comfortable.

“They are a tough side who are second in the league and it was a good result for us. I was determined to get on the right side of the result, and it shows the character we have as a group to power on and win the game.

“One of the best things about football is waking up the next day and feeling a bit sore so when that goes away it’ll be a sad day.”

Joe went on to speak about the way Michael Appleton has got Lincoln playing, explaining how the side have a lot in their armoury.

“It doesn’t take much to get Kers (David Kerslake) excited but today is the sort of thing we have been trying to improve on,” said Morrell.

“We haven’t scored a lot of goals recently, but our hard work and preparation has paid off today.

“We have a lot in our armoury as a team and the gaffer wants to play a possession-based game but there are certain elements which make it difficult. We have a lot in our game, and we can score lots of different goals.”

The 22-year-old finished by praising the Imps fans for their support, explaining how Lincoln has played a massive part in his career.

“It is never a bad atmosphere here, there are plenty of teams in the Football League who don’t have this atmosphere and don’t sell out at this time of year, so it is a very special place to play at,” explained Morrell.

“I will always be proud to say I have played for Lincoln City because I have enjoyed it so far and it’s been a big part of my career. To have the connection I have with the supporters after such a small space of time demonstrates what this football club is all about.”
