Video: Marshall praises partnership with Caprice

Lincoln City wide-man  Marcus Marshall has praised the understanding he has formed with right-back Jake Caprice over recent weeks.

The two have been regulars in the side since Tom Miller moved into a more central role and was then forced into time on the sidelines with injury.

The on-loan Morecambe man has netted twice for the Imps this season and thinks the attacking intent of Caprice has helped them form a partnership.

“We get on really well. We just tell each other to express ourselves and do our own things.

“We’ve got a similar playing style, he’s very attack minded and so am I so I think we work well together.”

“I noticed it from my first game playing with him. He was a nice, creative right-back to play with and it’s what I really like.”

“It can only help. It helps me and if we can help each other then it is a bonus.”

Marshall, who is on loan until the end of the season, confesses his thoughts have turned to his future beyond the end of the season.

“You’ve got to think about it because it’s my career at the end of the day. I just want to play every game the best I can.”

“If it would be in League Two with Lincoln then that would be a bonus but I do want to play in the league as that is a big ambition of mine.”

“I am just taking every game as it comes and we will see what happens.”

On Saturday’s match vs Chester, Marshall is confident they can avenge January’s 4-0 defeat in which the Imps ended with nine men.

“I think we’re going to keep eleven men on the pitch,” he laughed.

“We’ve just got to go for it. We’ve got to not be worried and forget what happened last time and just do what have been doing at home which has been keeping us winning.”

With a bumper crowd expected at Sincil Bank, Marshall hopes the Imps can continue their long winning streak at home.

“Hopefully there will be a good atmosphere, the more the merrier. We always need the support and hopefully we can make it eight (wins) out of eight at home.”
