Lincoln City midfielder, Max Sanders, said his three starts in recent fixtures have been a big step in his Imps career.
The former-Brighton and Hove Albion player admits he has had to be patient for his opportunity in the team but is now keen to contribute with points on the board as the club aim to climb the league table.
Max said: “Three starts in as many games have been great for me and I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve played decent but I know I could still do better so, if I am called upon, I’m ready.
“They have all been all different games as well against different styles with varying results, so it’s been a contrast of emotions, but it has been great to be a part of and I just want more.
“I had to be patient which is not a bad thing. I’ve been training hard, speaking to the manager regularly and he has been telling me I am part of his plans going forward and I need to be ready for when I get the chance.
“When you first get into the team you must prove your point and give everything you’ve got, and that’s how it has to be in every game. I want as many games before the end of the season to get as many points as we can because I believe I can help the team."
With a trip to Fleetwood the next challenge on the Imps’ fixture list, Max says the congested nature of matches is a bonus for putting the disappointment of Tuesday night’s result against Doncaster Rovers behind them and build momentum as they head into back-to-back away games.
He added: “It’s good we have another game so quickly. We’ve been playing well and the respect we’ve been given by some opposition shows that with the way they set-up.
“Onto Fleetwood next and we want three points: we can win in any game we play in and that’s the way we look at it, and that’s the reason we have the style of play we do. We just need to stay positive now and beat Fleetwood and start a run of positive results.
“We are used to having to dig in and sometimes that’s when we play our best. Whatever the conditions and whatever they throw at us, we’re ready for it, we’ve just got to impose ourselves on them best we can."
