The Imps climbed up to third in the Sky Bet League One table with a 1-0 win over Swindon Town at the Energy Check County Ground this evening.
Lewis Montsma’s 74th minute header was all it took for City to secure the three points on the road. City goalkeeper Alex Palmer went home a happy man after adding another clean sheet to his record in an Imps shirt.
The shot stopper praised his teammates for their defensive efforts against The Robins saying: “The boys were unbelievable in front of me, they defended really well and it’s a credit to them.
“We have built up the clean sheets now so it’s always pleasing to build off the back of them, it was a positive performance.”
Alex continued by explaining how the whole side worked hard throughout the 90 minutes at the Energy Check County Ground this evening, which helped secured them their eighth league win of the season.
“Our pressing is good because we work on that in training every day,” said the 24-year-old.
“It starts from the front with Hops (Tom Hopper) and the forwards, and it works back so we all work hard for the team, it’s a whole team performance and we have a great group of lads at the club.
“We play in a tight league; it is a long season, and we have a lot of games left so we will continue to work hard to pick the points up and we’ve done that tonight.”
With the Imp facing Plymouth Argyle on Saturday in their third consecutive away game, Alex discussed how he looks forward to visiting his former club in the Emirates FA Cup Second Round.
“We have had a lot of away games recently, so we are happy to come here and get the three points, we can now look towards the weekend in the FA Cup.
“It will be a nice break from the league action, and it will be another game we are looking to win so I’m looking forward to it, it’s a place I know well so we will go there to get ourselves into the next round.”
The City number one finished by turning his attention to the possibility of fans returning to LNER Stadium in the near future.
“I am definitely looking forward to fans coming back, the lads are hoping for it to happen soon,” explained Alex.
“I have heard the atmosphere is unbelievable so to have the loyal fans behind us will make Lincoln a daunting place to come to and give us a massive boost overall.”
