Kennedy: “We will learn from mistakes”

City head coach Mark Kennedy has insisted his side will learn from the mistakes which he believes cost his side two points on Tuesday night.

Jack Diamond’s fifth goal for the club was cancelled out late on as the Imps extended their unbeaten run at the LNER Stadium, but ultimately drew the game. 

Kennedy said: “I thought we played well and deserved to win. The lads did everything we asked of them and controlled the game, but we do see it as two points dropped. 

“We are the youngest team in the league and we are going to make mistakes – we have to accept that and continue to make sure we help the guys. Like anything in life, you learn from experiences, and we’re intelligent enough as a group to hopefully not make the same mistakes again.” 

Despite the result, Kennedy was keen to highlight the positives he saw in the game as his side further evidenced the difficultly opposing teams have in leaving the LNER Stadium with a result. 

He added: “I am a very positive man, but I want us to have a lot more wins. I won’t walk away from this result happy purely because we’ve kept the unbeaten run going, bit clearly it is a tough place for teams to come and try to get a victory. 

“Football is about fine lines, I thought we deserved to win and if we did, we’re then having completely different conversations because we’d be higher up the league. 

“We have to be balanced about where we are, we worked the goalkeeper really well, but that’s football.”
