Conor McGrandles is relishing the prospect of playing in front of a full LNER Stadium next weekend.
The midfielder helped the Imps to a point at Gillingham on Saturday, and thanked the 600 supporters who travelled to Kent for their backing.
He said: “They made noise whenever we got a chance or a corner I was thinking this was class, and i’m looking forward to the first home game next week.
“This is always a hard place to come, never mind on the first game of the season. We had a few chances and competed well, and perhaps with a little bit better decision making could have taken one of the half chances that came our way.”
McGrandles feels the side have benefitted from pre-season work on shape, and was pleased with the contributions Hakeeb Adelakun and Ted Bishop made off the bench.
He added: “We worked on it so much in pre-season that we know our roles so well, the lads who came on know it already and we’ll get sharper game on game and improve even more.
“We can only get better. When we got the ball in the second half we used it a bit better than we did in the first half.”
