Mark Kennedy insists City’s season won’t peter out after his side's first home league defeat of the season.
Peterborough United were the first side to take all three points from the LNER Stadium since the head coach’s arrival, and the Irishman is adamant the Imps will fight for results until the end of the season.
He said: “I promise I won’t allow the season to peter out. I think it was a good reminder of where we are and unfortunately we have come unstuck against an excellent side.
“To concede the goals we did and be defeated at home, I completely understand the disappointment of the supporters – we all feel that.”
Despite the result Kennedy is balanced with his perspective on the season and is expecting his side to show a reaction against Fleetwood Town next weekend.
He added: “I’m very balanced and rational about where we are and should be, and I’m comfortable with that.
“There are obviously things to improve and areas to work on, but I won’t be coming in on Monday and trying to start all over again.
“I think we have to be careful we don’t rip up our rulebook because it has served us well but hopefully we can learn from our mistakes individually and collectively.
“Thankfully we have a game next week to react and show the character and bravery we have in our group.”
