VIDEO: Lee Frecklington

22 August 2018

Lee Frecklington feels Lincoln City still have a lot to give despite starting the season unbeaten.

The local lad, who became the Imps captain earlier this month, spoke following Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Bury and has said that when the team click they will achieve great things.

Frecklington who scored the winner against Bury last night spoke about the victory and how his instincts led to the goal: “Football is just instinctive in moments and I don’t know why I did it or what came to my head but I did it and it went in which is all that matters. 

“We haven’t hit our levels yet but we have still managed to pick points up which is a great thing because when we do click and get things right we will achieve great things.” 

The Imps came from behind to pick up their third win of the season placing them second in the SkyBet League Two table. 

Frecklington explained what manager Danny Cowley had to say at half time when City were trailing: “I think it was a pretty even first half apart from the two set pieces, a few harsh words at half time and the gaffer has made a change of shape, in the second half I think we got better.”

Tom Pett was voted Man of the Match last night, continuing his impressive form. Frecklington discussed his team mate saying how well he has done so far this season.  

“He [Tom Pett] has been some player and has definitely been the player of the season since we have come back in the summer. We were all impressed with how he came back, his touch and his football brain is brilliant.

“It’s only right that he’s deserved his chance, it’s a credit to him because he’s not been picked a few times and a lot of players maybe felt he should have. 

“Some players sulk and don’t do the work but Tom Pett gets his head down and if you do that in football you will get those rewards, he has changed the game for us.”
