MCGLASHAN: WE WANT TO IMPOSE OUR GAME ON THEM

11 January 2019

Jermaine McGlashan said that Town will be well-drilled in how Lincoln will set up as they visit the Energy Check County Ground this Saturday.

McGlashan came off the bench and it was 70-yard jet-heeled run that set up the winner against Macclesfield last week.

He says that speed is one way to hurt a team but Town will be looking for more than that to beat league-leaders Lincoln City.

“We know all about them from the first game and we’ll be well drilled and show them respect. We’ve started work on them and we’re looking forward to it.

“Speed is one way of skinning a cat – but there’s plenty of other ways and we’ll look at ways to impose our game on them and that will be the focus. By Saturday, we’ll know where we want to hit them and hurt them.

“It’s so hard because the next day is recovery and you’re recovering to go again and you can’t get your point across in terms of the way you want to play with the amount of change of players for the next game.

“It’s such a relief to have a full week to prepare and do your shape work and have a structured week. I’m a little bit older now so the recover is key – you benefit from it more.

“We got back on the training ground and we’ll be refreshed for it on Saturday.”

On the winner against the Silkmen last week, it was desire and an instruction to get in the box that made the difference according to McGlashan.

“I got thrown with a few minutes left and it was just a case of sure things up, but if we can hit them on the break then we’ll do that.

“Fair play to the boys that busted a gut to get in the box – I was running at full pace and to get past me and the composed finish from Jak and the new lad.

“The Gaffer is always emphasising to get between the sticks and get your goals. My better games have probably been off the bench – and whether I like it or not that’s the way it has been and it might be a case of tired legs and I offer that pace.”
