Lincoln City goalkeeper, Jordan Wright, says he is pleased with his recent involvement in the starting-eleven following the early curtailment of Josh Griffiths’ season.

The keeper, who joined in January to initially provide cover, has kept two clean sheets in his past four games and sealed his place as the number one for the foreseeable future.

Jordan said: “I wasn’t expecting it at all, I came here with the mindset of just having an involvement in a first team environment every week, for me to get minutes this quickly is great for me.

“I’ve always been a chilled out, take everything as it comes, type of person. It did hit me hard at first - playing in front of 25,000 fans at Ipswich on debut was difficult, but you have to take your chance when you get it and that’s how football works.”

Now an established member of the first-team, Jordan insists he is focused on self-improvement and strives to play a part in fulfilling the squad’s goals over the remaining seven games of the season.

He added: “It's never easy in this league because every game is different but working here with the guys is helping me prepare in the right way and then it’s just down to me to get onto the pitch and do it.

“We have our goals and know what we want to achieve and we want to do that as quickly as we can. Mentality-wise we just want to go into every game and win, that’s what we train each day for and at the end of the day when the match comes, all you want is those three points.”
