A summary of what the Imps boss had to say after the 0-0 draw at Accrington Stanley
Lincoln City secured a decent point in a goalless draw against the formidable Accrington Stanley.
The Imps were injured after missing a penalty in the second half after substitute Brennan Johnson appeared in the box while Stanley saw Sean McConville sacked after a challenge against Lewis Montsma.
« It depends on how the game is going, but they have had a good run and may not concede many goals. « . But I am frustrated not to have broken the impasse. We got into good positions so often. The goalkeeper made some good saves and there was a penalty that should have been.
« It just feels like frustration right now. I can assure you, no one in the locker room appreciates a point.
« The way it turned out, I just expected more from us. Maybe I have too much expectation of her. We’ll find out on Tuesday night [in Swindon if it’s a good point] because I guarantee we’ll be better on Tuesday than we are today. ”
« It looked like a stone wall. The boys looked perplexed that it wasn’t given. For him [Johnson] it was a bit embarrassing to be booked on the back.
“But there was still a lot of time in the game and we had numerous opportunities where we could have done a little better. ”
« Possibly. Obviously I don’t know for sure. It looks like I thought he should have had one in a final game.
« I don’t know if the umpires are talking to each other but the reality is that they are all penalties [the ones he won], no one really complained about them and they would not have complained about them today. « . ”
« He returned to us yesterday [after international service with Wales]. The work he’s done in the past few weeks is 40 percent of what he would normally do with us. I thought it would be a better option to win him when the games open up a little.
« We were dealing with a strong team and had to make sure we were in the game.
« It wasn’t necessarily Harry [Anderson] who was going to be sacrificed, it was something I had on my mind – if we can come at halftime or 50-55 minutes – that we would introduce him. ”
« It doesn’t matter what I think. After all, we’re a small squad. We will try to take advantage of this change as best we can.
« Would I be for it in the long term? No. Sometimes it can affect your decision-making during the game. Sometimes you can do something early instead of waiting until halftime.
« There will be someone – I don’t think it will be me – who will do five subs at half time. ”
« When the laws say it’s a dispatch, I understand. In my day it would probably have been a booking.
« We should have taken the opportunity to gain an advantage at this point. You could argue we were a little unlucky not to do it.
« But I’m now more frustrated with my raw feelings and a little angry that we haven’t taken control of it. ”
« He grew into the game. Sometimes he stepped into midfield. We met after approx. 20 changed a little. We switched him and Jacko [Adam Jackson] so we could bring Lewis more on the ball, on his right side of course.
« He [Montsma] is going to make mistakes because we want him to do what we saw today, step into midfield and be positive. Expect him to make a mistake or two.
“He stopped training yesterday with an injured hip, it was really late.
« Sam [young keeper] didn’t come to the hotel until late at night. We know Sam is more than capable if he ever had to come. «
