Lincoln City head coach Michael Skubala at press conference

Lincoln City head coach Micheal Skubala looks ahead to Tuesday night’s fixture with Cambridge United, off the back of Saturday’s big win away to Barnsley.

The Imps defeated Barnsley 5-1 at Oakwell and are looking to extend their unbeaten run to 12 games under the lights at the LNER Stadium.

Jack Moylan scored a brace in the win, after coming off the bench.

Skubala said: “Jack’s been chomping at the bit to get into the team, he’s been training really well. He’s got this ability to get past people and get into the box. Jack I think was superb when he came on after half time.”

Danny Mandroiu dropped into the midfield, with Ted Bishop missing the game with a niggle.

The Imps boss said: “I thought Danny did brilliantly again as a six, he was fantastic in there with Ethan [Erhahon] in a different role. He’s a talented player and when called upon he did some great work without the ball.”

Skubala reiterated Ethan Hamilton and Connor McGrandles will miss the rest of the season and issued worrying news on Ted Bishop:

“He’s touch and go whether he will make tomorrow and Freddie [Draper] we’re not too sure about again it will be something we assess,” he said.

The former Leeds United under-21s added: “We have to be really careful that we don’t underestimate teams at this level. These three points is the same as the last three points. We did really well at Barnsley but both games are worth three points. They have brought in a really experienced manager in Garry Monk, so we know this is going to be a really tough game.”

When asked by BBC Radio Lincolnshire about the possibility of a late play-off push, he said: “Still a way to go but I think the lads have done brilliantly but for me its about every game, every game is worth three points.”

The Imps midfielder reflected on the Imps win, saying: “We will take the 5-1 win away at a really good team. It was really good, a great atmosphere, a great away day.”

When asked about his changing midfield partners, the Scotsman said: “It’s on you to keep your self right and hopefully be available for the rest of the season. It’s sad to see the boys get injured, we are going to miss them. When you have two more attacking players next to you, you give them the freedom and you just hold the fort.”

Erhahon looked ahead to the visit of Cambridge United, as City return to the LNER Stadium.

“I think it’s on us to bring the same intensity that we brought to Barnsley away. We will hopefully take it to Cambridge from minute one. Looking forward to it,” he said.
