Lincoln City’s Lee Beevers aims for a second consecutive win against Torquay

Lincoln City defender Lee Beevers is aiming for three points this weekend against league strugglers Torquay United.

Lincoln City currently sit in seventh position in the Vanarama National League just one point outside the play-offs and beat Torquay United 2-0 at Sincil Bank earlier this season.

The Imps will take a four and a half hour away trip down south this weekend and Beevers has his sights set on a win.

“Hopefully we can go down there, put a good performance in and come back with three points,” he said.

Beevers is loving being back for his second stint with the Imps. He moved back to the club this summer following his release from Mansfield Town.

Since being back he’s had to be flexible with his position but says that he’s just happy to be playing.

“It’s one of those things in my career where I’ve been able to play a few positions but I’m just happy being back and playing and as long as we’re doing ok then I’m happy with that.”

The Imps are without experienced midfielder Matt Sparrow due to suspension but Beevers believes that the team will be able to work through it.

“We’re training today and tomorrow. We’ll be working on all different things and putting players in different positions.

“We’ve had him missing a few times before when he had his ankle injury. We managed to come through that run of games without him so we’ll be doing the same again.”

Beevers made it clear that the Imps’ defence have put their start to the season to the back of their minds as he praised their recent defensive performances.

“At the start with the first five or six games we were a little bit concerned because we weren’t keeping many clean sheets and it was something that we wanted to do. But in the last five or six we seem to be nailing it down now and keeping teams shut out.”

“As long as you keep a clean sheet we’re always going to create chances at the other end.”

However, Beevers doesn’t want the team to get carried away with their position but instead take it one game at a time.

“You can’t think about the last game too much and also can’t think about what’s the future because you’ve always got another game.

“The Whitehawk game is a prime example of that where we didn’t turn up and if we carry on doing that in the league then we’re not going to be where we want to be.”
