Michael Appleton: We will continue to work hard

19 October 2020

The Imps face a quick turnaround from Saturday’s 0-0 draw against Fleetwood Town with Michael Appleton’s side facing Plymouth Argyle tomorrow night at LNER Stadium.

City currently sit third in the Sky Bet League One table with 13 points to their name from six games. Michael explained how the Imps will continue to work hard at Soper of Lincoln Elite Performance Centre with the side playing two games in a week.

“We have had a quick turnaround from the weekend, we will monitor a few of the boys who played to see how they are ahead of tomorrow night, we will work hard to try and get the result.

“We have a squad for a reason, we will see who is available and then if there are any players out, we have options available.

"Walshy (Joe Walsh) played his first competitive game since March so we will monitor him, he impressed on Saturday.”

The Imps boss continued by mentioning how he will use the next few games to assess how his side will do for the remainder of the season.

“We are still seeing how the season will pan out so the next few games will be about picking points up and seeing where we are at.

“I thought Saturday’s performance was arguably the best of the season we just didn’t get the result we deserved.”

The topic of conversation turned to tomorrow night’s game against Plymouth Argyle with the action being broadcasted live on WeAreImps iFollow.

Michael praised the Argyle boss, Ryan Lowe speaking about how tomorrow’s fixture will be a tough game at LNER Stadium.

“Plymouth are expansive, they play with a three which doesn’t always turn into a five like you see with a lot of teams,” explained the Imps manager.

“They are a good side with a good manager who is well respected, they have had success recently. They have a good brand of football and they will provide a tough game, I am sure it will be an open game.

“The job Ryan did at Bury was impressive, Plymouth were well fancied last year, and Ryan has been able to guide them to success. He won’t be getting carried away in a similar way to us, we want to be competitive and that’s going to be the same for Plymouth.”
