Bruno Andrade was pleased to return to winning ways as the Imps beat Sunderland 2-0 in front of a record crowd at Sincil Bank on Saturday.
10,264 packed into the Bank on Saturday to break the club's previous all-seater attendance record by over 200, which was the final home day of the National League title-winning season.
Andrade, who has started both league games since Michael Appleton's arrival, provided the assist for Tyler Walker's second as the Imps won for the first time since Appleton's arrival.
The Portugese winger explained how it was an important three points in Lincoln’s campaign saying: “That win has been coming, the whole team worked hard and we got the result we wanted.
“We knew we would have to start quick today because they are a good team. We also knew we would have to keep a clean sheet because we have been starting slow and sloppy recently.
“Once we scored the first goal we knew we would grow into the game, it was an important win for us.”
Andrade continued by speaking about his team mates performances as well as discussing his own performance.
“Jack Payne has been unbelievable in the hole since the new gaffer has come in so that has made it easier for me to make the runs because he will always find you,” explained the 25-year-old.
“It was a lovely ball from Neal (Eardley), that’s why they call him the postman. He has great quality and Tyler (Walker) made a great run to the front post which he always does in training.
“I thought that I had to keep going and be direct, it was great to have a good game. We were happy to get a clean sheet and also get the three points under our belt.”
Bruno finished by praising City fans for their impressive support: “The fans spurred us on today, they pull us through games at times.
“They are always loud and that’s great because there are times where we are hanging on and need them, they always give us a boost to do them proud.”
