Lincoln City goalkeeper Lukas Jensen sat down with the media to discuss recent form, preview the trip to Burton Albion and look back on his time so far at the Imps.
Jensen picked up his tenth clean sheet of the season against Peterborough on Saturday, and gave his thoughts on the milestone.
He said: “I count it as a mini-goal. I set myself targets at the start of the season, but I have a goal in mind which I tell my goalkeeper coach, and the people around me. But to get to ten is good. I think we could have had more than what we have, especially with how many games we conceded late on. I see that in progress.”
“To put two good performances in against two good sides, that is very promising and if we can build on that going into February that will be good,” he added.
Looking ahead to the trip to Burton, the Dane is aware of the test that the Imps must pass to pick up three points.
He said: “If I can get that [third clean sheet in a row], it would be great, and then we would look forward to the next game against Fleetwood as well. Hopefully, these are a couple games where we can keep the ball out of the net and score some goals. It’s going to be a difficult game because we have just done some analysis on that and their pitch is not great, and the way they want to play is tough and direct. Hopefully we can cope with that.
“If you look at the stats from the last two games, the way we played we actually had the bigger chances. We put down two really good performances and we have to build on that. It’s going to be a different game, but if we bring the same intensity we had in the second half against Wycombe, and the last two games, I’m sure we will have a good outcome.”
The goalkeeper has settled and enjoyed his time at Lincoln City since signing at the start of the season.
He said: “It’s been great to play loads of games, that’s why I am here. I want to play every week, or sometimes twice a week. It’s tough on the body because you have to get used to it. Everyone else in the changing room will say that we have played a lot of games this year and you can feel like an old man afterwards. But it’s been great. I am here to play loads of games and to show what I can do.”
The shot-stopper added: “I started really well, had a good cup run and was doing well in the league. Then I’ve had a dip, and the team has had a dip when losing all of those games, which is natural because you can’t perform at the highest level all the time. But I think we have found something great now where we are starting to build again.”
Lincoln travel to Burton Albion on Saturday, before relegation threatened Fleetwood Town visit the LNER Stadium the following week.
