O’Connor: There are positives to take

Paudie O’Connor is eager to move onto Saturday’s fixture at Shrewsbury Town after suffering late heartbreak on Tuesday night.

The Imps conceded an equaliser deep into stoppage time at Northampton Town, but the skipper is keen to draw on the positives of going three unbeaten in all competitions.

He said: “There’s definitely things to take from the match and positives we can bring into the game on Saturday. 

“I have been around long enough to know it is a long season, so to get bogged down after game four will not get you anywhere. 

“We will come back in for training on Thursday full of life, and ready to go and get a win at the weekend.”

The Irishman contributed to the point away at Northampton with a headed goal in front of the travelling City supporters and hopes to continue helping his team at both ends of the pitch throughout the 23/24 campaign.

He added: “We said last year that we were very good at defending our goal and were one of the best in the league at that, but going the opposite way we felt we could improve. 

“Lasse Sorensen put a good ball in which made it pretty easy for me to go and nod it in. I am happy to get off the mark and I got an assist for Sean Roughan the other night, so we are going in the right direction.”
