Grant Brown: At least the chairman can now show his face!
Grant Brown has praised the Lincoln City players in an interview carried in Lincoln University’s on line magazine “The Linc”
Man of the moment Jamie Taylor came in for scrutiny as “Hoof” reflected on that audacious 35 yard lob that had the Hereford keeper flummoxed. “It was a great pass by Gary Mills and a great run from Jake Sheridan to get there and put the defender under pressure”
“It was a really good finish, I didn’t think it was going to make it, but it just sneaked over the line. It was a fantastic time to score, right on the stroke of half time. It gives you something to hold on to, because Hereford are a good side.”
The former Imps favourite also heaped praise on an aspect of David Holdsworth’s tactics the fans had doubts about, substitutions :
“When substitutes come on the pitch, you want them to make an impact,” Brown said. “They both certainly did that; Colin with his penalty and Vadaine with his physical presence in the box.”
In a tongue in cheek aside Brown also remarked on how the fans had reacted to the upturn and alluded to the fact that chairman Bob Dorrian can at least now leave his front door without a disguise:
“It gives such a lift to the players. We ask them to come in and do it for the fans, to show respect to the fans, and they’re doing that. It’s a good time to be a Lincoln City supporter.
“The chairman can walk around town safely now, he’s not afraid to be seen out and about.”
Ever the realist though, Brown is not letting his enthusiasm run wild:
“We haven’t done anything yet. It’s November still, we’re ninth in the table which is a better position than we’ve been in for quite a long time. We need to propel that; we need to move forward, keep winning games and not rest on our laurels.
“If we get to January and we’re still up there, we can look to strengthen or kick on with the players we’ve got.”
Well, we’re tenth now after last nights results but even so it’s certainly a good time to be an Imp and long may it continue.
