INTERVIEW: Jordan Willis Previews The Upcoming Clash With Lincoln City

17 November 2017

This weekend will be the first time in 54 years that the Sky Blues will make the trip to Sincil Bank to take on Lincoln City in Sky Bet League Two action.

The Imps have the second best defensive record in the league, behind Mark Robins side who have conceded six less with nine so far.

Defender, Jordan Willis is expecting a difficult challenge from Lincoln this weekend, but is hopeful that if he and his team mates play their game, then they can come away with the win.

He said: “I think every game in this league is a difficult game, anyone can beat anyone and that has been shown.

“The games where teams have sat back a little bit more, we’ve struggled in those ones rather than the teams who are at the top of the league, where they are going to try to bring the game to us, we seem to play better in those games.

“It’s finding the right balance in the style of play to combat both styles.

“It’s going to be a physical game against Lincoln and we’ve just got to play our game; do what we do, move the ball quickly and impose ourselves onto them and get the win.”

The Sky Blues are level on 27 points with Lincoln, both sitting just six points off the automatic places and seven behind table toppers Notts County.

Currently in sixth position, Willis admitted he hoped him and his team mates would have been higher in the table, but is confident they can close the gap on the automatic places.

“We hoped to have been higher.

“A few results haven’t gone our way, which has put us in that position but we’re still in and around it where it’s still reachable.

“We need to make sure we are on the climb and getting back into those top spots and not on the wrong side of it when the table slightly starts to open up.”
