Bramall: A run of games provides mental and physical boost

Lincoln City defender, Cohen Bramall, says his consecutive run of games in the side have been beneficial both on and off the pitch.

The full-back, who has become a regular in Michael Appleton’s side and has even contributed offensively with a goal in the 2-1 victory against Morecambe recently, acknowledges the competition for places within the side.

Cohen said: “I’ve had a lot of games recently and it’s been good for the body and mentally.

“If I didn’t have competition, it would be hard for me – I don’t know where my level would be. It would be harder to keep ticking in training and games, but Jamie Robson is a good player and brings different roles to the game, and so I like I get pushed.

“I like a challenge otherwise it would be boring, so I am happy I’ve got competition.”

An advantage to a consecutive number of starts means Cohen has struck up a strong partnership with Anthony Scully given the Irishmen typically operates on the left-side of offense ahead of Bramall.

Cohen said: “Me and Scully know what we need to do on the left-side to keep the both of us ticking, we speak to each other regularly and make sure we’re on it.

“I think Scully knows what I want when he gets the ball, and vice versa. If we both work hard, a lot of the time we have the left side boxed off.

“Since I have signed, the gaffer has always wanted the full-backs bombing on, especially for me I have got to get forward. If I don’t get forward and don’t overlap, I feel as though I haven’t done anything in the game – I’ve got to get my legs ticking to be successful.”
