Lincoln City's Lasse Sorensen

Lincoln City wing-back Lasse Sorensen expects a “tough game” on the final day of the SkyBet League One season.

The Imps go into the game knowing a win would almost certainly guarantee a play-off place. However, they face a Portsmouth side who have already been crowned as champions, after leading the way throughout the campaign.

Speaking to The Linc, Sorensen said: “We’re really confident, I think we are whoever we play. We know it’s going to be a really tough game, everybody knows that, but we can only go and do the best we can, which I’m sure we will. And, then take it from there.”

One game to go for Lincoln City:

Michael Skubala‘s men have lost just once in their past 19 games. It is a run that included a streak of 16 unbeaten games before Wigan Athletic picked up three points at the LNER Stadium a couple of weeks ago.

Speaking to BBC Radio Lincolnshire, Sorensen said: “Hopefully it won’t be our last game, but in the regular season it is. So, we’re looking forward to it. We just take it as any other game, and it’s been a long season, but an enjoyable one.”

“We know Portsmouth, they were champions two games ago. You won’t be champions that early if you are not a really, really good throughout the whole season. So, they have been really good these past few months, and sort of matched us,” he added.

The LNER Stadium is sold out for Pompey’s trip to Lincolnshire. The Danish wing-back is looking forward to playing in front of another full house. Speaking to The Linc, he said: “I’m buzzing. We talked about it before, we know the stadium is always rocking, but the game is extra special.”

Reflecting on a long season:

Fan-favourite Sorensen has made 50 appearances this season, sitting just one behind his tally last season with a single game of the regular season left to play.

The 24-year-old is only behind midfielder Ethan Erhahon and goalkeeper Lukas Jensen in terms of minutes played this term. His 50 outings puts him as the top appearance maker this season, one ahead of shot-stopper and fellow Dane, Jensen.

He said: “I’ve really enjoyed it. 50 games is a lot of games, so there’s a lot in there and some are better than others. I’m really enjoying it, and just trying to learn.”

Injuries have blighted Lincoln this season, but Sorensen has managed to stay fit consistently through the entire season.

“You see us on the matchday playing the games, but between the matchdays, that’s what training is for, the gym is for. It’s a 24/7 job sort of thing, when you go home you need to take care of yourself and rest. You can only do the best we can do in terms of that, we’ve got good people helping us to do that and a lot of credit goes to them,” he said.
