Kennedy happy to hit unbeaten milestone

Mark Kennedy is pleased to have achieved 10 games unbeaten following Tuesday’s goalless draw at Cheltenham.

City added to their impressive defensive record with another clean sheet on the road in Gloucestershire, which is something Kennedy is taking a lot of pride from.

He said: “We are really proud of going 10 games unbeaten. We have played 34 games, we are eleventh in the league and have gained a point.

“We have secured seven clean sheets in our previous 10 matches. There’s a long way to go but we feel that we are in a good space.”

The Imps were made to settle for a point at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium and the head coach believes his side created the better opportunities on the night but just lacked the finishing touch.

He added: “Carl Rushworth has had one comfortable save to make in the second half, and Mide Shodipo has put one over from six yards out following a corner. 

“Ted Bishop also hit the crossbar and Ben House missed a one-on-one, so if you are talking about chances created, I do feel that we should have won the game based on that. 

“Where I have to give the staff and players massive credit is we completely changed our game plan and I thought we were excellent after that.”

City are next in action at the LNER Stadium on Saturday 18 March against Peterborough United - secure your seat HERE.
