Lincoln City midfielder Ted Bishop took his tally to five for the season after scoring the Imps’ first goal at Fratton Park on Good Friday.
Speaking after the match against Portsmouth, the City number 12 said: “In the first half we felt comfortable, we didn’t create much, but we were the side in control of the game.
“We were confident coming into the second half, but their penalty was awarded so we suddenly found ourselves chasing the match.
“Overall, we are disappointed not to come away with any points because we showed great character as a group to come back from being two goals behind.
“It was just unfortunate to lose the way we did but our heads won’t drop.”
Playing as a number eight in Lincoln’s midfield, Bishop explained how he enjoyed the role linking up with Brooke Norton-Cuffy and Liam Cullen.
“It felt like we linked up well throughout the match,” said Ted.
“Liam created space for me and Brooke which is pleasing as it shows what we have been working hard on in training.”
“I have enjoyed playing in the number eight role recently. If you want to be successful in that position you need to score goals so for me to get on the scoresheet was pleasing, but it is a team game, and we have to come away as a team looking to Monday.”
The 25-year-old continued to turn his attention to Easter Monday’s Sky Bet League One Fixture versus Cheltenham Town at LNER Stadium adding: “We now have the opportunity to put things right with the quick turnaround.
“We will go home and get the Portsmouth result out of our head because the attention is now on the Cheltenham match. We want to win every game of football and you can see that in the way we look to play.
“It’s fair to say that we haven’t had the rub of the green on certain things this season, but we will work hard to scrap for every point on offer between now and the end of the season.”
