Lincoln City goalkeeper Paul Farman praises his defence
Paul Farman has hailed the Lincoln City defence as he aims to lock out Cambridge United tomorrow in the Skrill Premier (3pm).
The Imps goalkeeper has only one blemish on his record this season, a solitary goal in the 2-1 win over Forest Green Rovers last Saturday.
And he is confident the understanding between him and the back four can deliver more clean sheets.
“If you include pre-season it’s one goal in the last seven, and that was an own goal in effect,” said Farman

“It’s an understanding of the back four and having a settled one makes a big difference.
“At Woking I had to make two saves, Forest Green I had one cross to deal with and Macclesfield I didn’t have saves to make.
“I will take that for the rest of the season. As long as we have clean sheets we can win games. A few of the matches haven’t been the prettiest, but three points are still three points.”
And it is not just the back four which has impressed Farman.
Striker Ben Tomlinson has been defending from the front for the Imps, by harassing the opposition as soon as they get hold of the ball in their own half.
“I usually hate centre forwards, especially lazy ones,” joked Farman.
“However, Tomlinson is good, he works and works. Everyone has seen that he can just run.
“The gaffer says, ‘if you can give me hard non-stop graft for 60 minutes, I’ve got lads on the bench who can step in’.
“He’s like a trigger player for us, when he goes we all go. There is a good understanding of how he is going to play.”
