Marquis: There is more to come

8 February 2022

Imps frontman John Marquis has started his Imps career with a bang, but says there is still more to come from him despite scoring a goal in every game he has played for the club.

With three goals in as many appearances the striker has settled quickly into life in Lincolnshire, and says the way the club plays suits his game.

He said: "The reason I wanted to come here was because I saw the areas I could get in and it’s something that suits my game.

"Throughout my whole career I’ve scored a lot of goals and they have all been in and around the six-yard area. There are very few I can count which have been outside the box so I know that’s where my strength lies - with my movement and timing.“

Despite being one of the newest faces in the dressing room, the striker is one of the most experienced heads at the club. He hopes he utilises this to the squad's advantage by being one of the more vocal members of the group as the team prepare for three home games in eight days at the LNER Stadium.

He added: “The main thing I’ll be saying is to not put too much pressure on yourselves which can make you become uptight and tense. 

“You’ve got to enjoy these games because pressure is a privilege and, even if the table is not what we want it to be, we need to relish in these moments and enjoy it. 

“I haven’t been here too long but I feel as though I have settled in well, and that is part of my character. I’m loud and vocal before a game, and it tunes myself and hopefully those around me, but it gets me in a place where I can work at my best."
