Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley believes his side can and will have to play better despite closing in on automatic promotion from the Vanarama National League writes Tom Feaheny.
On what could be the decisive night in the title race, the Imps gained victory over Chester while Forest Green Rovers did them a big favour beating Tranmere Rovers 1-0. Cowley though felt his team could have done more.
“Under pressure, we’ve got to execute our game plan in big games. We’ve got good players who have done that in big games all season but for perhaps the first time we didn’t do that.
“The players’ character is never in question for me. I rest easy at night knowing that they are going to give me everything they’ve got. They did that again.
“Physically we weren’t at it but our togetherness and spirit saw us through. We stuck together when we weren’t playing well.”
Next up for the side is Torquay United at home on Good Friday followed by a trip to Gateshead on Easter Monday. Cowley told the Lincolnshire Echo he does not expect fatigue to play a part in their run towards the title.
“They can cope, there are no excuses. It’s football. We’re a successful team that plays regularly, that’s the reality.
“If you want to be a successful team you’re going to play 60 games. That’s what we’re going to do and that’s what we’re trained to do.”
