Matija Sarkic previews Lincoln City

Matija Sarkic previews Town's Sky Bet League One clash with Lincoln City.

Shrewsbury Town are back on the road after picking up a win away from home against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

Salop will be looking to repeat that form, as Steve Cotterill's men take on second-place Lincoln City at Sincil Bank.

Shrews goalkeeper Matija Sarkic is expecting another tough test for his side but believes Town have the confidence to get a result against the Imps.

On returning back from injury:

“It’s not nice to be injured. I’m very happy to be back and able to try and make an impact on the team. It’s tough seeing things not go our way and especially as a keeper, injuries are slower and harder for us to take.

“You feel a bit guilty when you know the cards aren’t in your hand, but I just remained focussed and made sure I could return as quickly as possible.

"A clean sheet for us was huge on Saturday. For me and the defence, it’s something we all needed. The Gaffer has come in and made sure we’ve put the work in to improve in those areas. It’s all credit to the boys for not allowing Hull a shot on target - that was great for me so hopefully we can keep producing solid performances.

“They threw everything at us so it was important for me especially, to stay focussed and keep everyone in front of me as organised. It seemed to pay off because as I said, not a single shot on target or a save to make, so that’s a goalkeeper’s ideal situation. As much as I want to make saves, it’s what you want and you have to credit the lads in front of me as well.”

On Tuesday’s opponents:

“I think we have to learn from the previous game with them, you can always learn from defeat. We have been boosted with confidence from the away win against Hull so we have to show it wasn’t just a fluke and hopefully, can get one back over Lincoln in the process.

“We showed against Hull that we can beat anyone. That’s another reason why this division is so exciting, anyone can beat anyone but we are focussing more on ourselves and we feel that if we get our game right, then hopefully we can come away with a positive result.”
