Imps defender working hard to strive for improvements

15 February 2022

City full-back, Brooke Norton-Cuffy, says he was pleased with his performance following his first senior start, but is eager to kick-on.

The 18-year-old impressed the supporters and the manager with his performance, winning the Man of the Match poll on social media; however, he is determined to not stop there.

He said: “It was a proud moment for me, I’ve been working hard in training and for all my life to make my full debut.

“I think I played well, I was pretty happy with my performance, but there was still a lot of things I thought I could have improved on. I started the match a bit shaky, but I feel as though I grew into the game, and I feel like for my full debut, I did quite well.

“There are a few of us who can play right-back, but it’s just about working hard every day to impress and get that start.”

Should Brooke get the nod from Michael Appleton again on Tuesday night, the defender is keen to impact the game positively and help the Imps climb further up the Sky Bet League One table and give the supporters something to cheer about over the second half of the campaign.

“If we win [against Doncaster], it will be very big for us because as we all know, our home form hasn’t been too good,” he said.

“If we get points on the board, it will really give us momentum to get rolling with wins at home and help our aim of turning the LNER Stadium into a fortress.

“Us as a team, and me as an individual, we don’t have time to be complacent; we just need to take every game at a time and focus on getting as many points as possible out of every match, treating each one as though it’s the biggest one we will ever play.

“We owe the fans more than we have given them so far. We have put in a lot of good performances at home but not quite got the points we deserved from that; we need to change that.”
