Lincoln City's Lasse Sorensen

Lincoln City‘s Lasse Sorensen spoke after his much-debated ‘wonder-goal’ or ‘lucky cross’, as the Imps dominated Shrewsbury Town in a 3-0 win.

Speaking to BBC Radio Lincolnshire, he said: “Obviously I saw the ‘keeper off the line and dipped it in…but it’s one of them. Throughout the season you sometimes do a shot and you think the ‘keeper made a good save and other times you try to cross it and it goes it top corner on the other side.”

“You take them. I would love to say I’ve got them in my locker, but a little bit of luck for sure,” he added.

Dominant Imps:

The Imps started the game with a 20 minute spell that threatened to blow away the visiting Shrewsbury.

“We set the tone from the beginning, obviously that was the plan, and we went and did it. The whole game I don’t think they could live with our press. Every time we gave the ball away, we got it back straight away. We just looked really good as a team, the way we pressed, the way we moved the ball. I think it was a real good team performance,” Sorensen said.

Ted Bishop broke the deadlock in the sixth minute, and could’ve had a hat-trick before the break. City created chance after chance in the first-half.

The Dane said: “The game could’ve been put to bed before half-time. You know what this league can do with a 1-0, anybody can get back into that. But, we came out second-half and we created more chances and we took them.”

“The confidence is good in the team. It wasn’t long ago we were on a bad run, but even in the bad run I don’t think our confidence was ever low. Of course when you win it’s higher, but the whole season I’ve believed we can go into any game and win it,” he added.

Best performance of the season?

Lincoln boss Michael Skubala said the night under the LNER Stadium lights was the “best performance” he had seen this season.

Sorensen agreed with his head coach. Speaking to LincSport, he said: “I think we’ve had good performances in spells this season, but for 90 minutes today we were really good.”

He added: “When we played Charlton at home, that was before Michael Skubala came in, but that was the last time I remember us having a 90 minute game where we blew a team away.”

Team effort and playoff hopes:

“A good team can’t rely on one person to score the goals and do everything. A good team needs to have people contributing from everywhere,” Sorensen said.

The wing-back was joined in the goals by Bishop and Reeco Hackett, while Joe Taylor, Ethan Erhahon and Ben House all helped create big chances.

On his man of the match contribution, he said: “That’s what I’m there to do. I’m trying to get forward as much as possible, that’s my playing style. I’m trying to get goals and assists. I didn’t expect to score from there, I was hoping for an assist when I crossed it, but I will take it.”

A late dash for the playoffs hasn’t been ruled out by Lincoln fans, or in-fact the team themselves.

Sorensen said: “We’ve done well to turn it around a little bit. We were on a bad run and we’re getting closer. We know it needs to be a really good run until the end of the season, but this is a good team. I can’t see why we can’t do it, but we also have to be realistic as we’re a little bit off it.”

The Imps face a huge game in their push for the playoffs, as they welcome Steve Evans’ Stevenage to Lincolnshire on Saturday.
