Lasse sees building blocks

Lasse Sorensen believes two clean sheets in a row have given the Imps something to build from as they enter a busy period.

Saturday’s goalless draw at Doncaster followed a 1-0 win over Bowers & Pitsea in the Emirates FA Cup, with that record giving Sorensen plenty of belief.

The midfielder said: “We are happy to keep another clean sheet as we haven’t done that enough this season and this is a real positive.

“There was some good stuff play and we were solid at the back, but you also need to score goals and that was missing on Saturday - we know the game should have been done in the first-half.”

The Imps have a hectic fixture list, with progression in both the FA Cup and Papa John’s Trophy ensuring Saturday and Tuesday games over the next three weeks. Sorensen sees that as a real opportunity.

He added: “If you can get a few wins you’ll jump up a few places as the table is so tight.

“We have had some good results but haven’t always backed it up with a run, which we know we can do."

Tuesday night’s fixture will be the first of two games at the LNER Stadium this week as Accrington Stanley visit on Saturday 27 November. Click here to book your tickets for both games.
