TYLER: I have a responsibility to help the young lads

13 January 2020

Tyler Walker is looking forward to working with new arrival Tyreece John-Jules following the Arsenal loanee’s debut against Shrewsbury.

Walker believes he needs to act as a figure Tyreece can look up to during the pairs time at LNER Stadium.

“Even though I am quite young, I have a responsibility to help and look out for the young lads who have come in,” said Tyler.

“He (Tyreece) played really well on Saturday and hopefully he does well for us, it is great for the squad to have healthy competition because then no one gets complacent.

“At this age it is good to get out and play games on loan, I have experienced different leagues and I want to be able to help Tyreece wherever I can.”

Tyler continued by reflecting on Saturday’s performance against Shrewsbury Town saying how the Imps played well to create chances.

“We are doing really well as a team by creating chances and the main thing is that we keep picking up points. We got a good point at Shrewsbury at the weekend and I am really enjoying myself.

“I want to score as many goals as I can, I am a striker and that’s my job, I want to score every game to do as well as I can for Lincoln.

“I back myself from 12-yards that is what I am here to do, I was delighted to have scored the pen on Saturday. There have been bigger and better players miss penalties, so I just backed myself to score and will continue to do that. We picked up the point in the end so hopefully that’ll turn out to be a good point for us.”

The 23-year-old finished by looking forward to tomorrow night’s game, explaining how the City fans will play a major part.

“We have done really well at home,” said Tyler. “We play well in front of our fans because they give us an extra boost, so I am looking forward to playing in front of them again and putting in a performance.  

“I am pleased with how I have been playing because I came here to play games and I have done that. I have been given the chance to show what I can do in league one. I am really happy and looking forward to it continuing.

“It is a different league to what I was playing in last year and I am always learning. I am still quite young, and I want to play as many games as I can, all I can think about is playing my football here until the end of the season.”
