"We got better as the game went on" says Paul after late cup drama

Paul Lambert felt Town deserved a place in the second round of the FA Cup after Alan Judge’s last gasp winner.

The Republic of Ireland international struck in added on time with his first goal for the Club to book Blues a visit to St Andrew’s to face Coventry on December 1 and end the Club’s nine year run without a win in the competition.

“It was like the first game, Lincoln were better in the first-half and we were better after half-time,” Town boss Paul told the Club website.  

“I was really happy with the team. We got better as the game went on and deserved to win in the end.

“I’m delighted for Judgey. He’s just come back from international duty and it’s been a long time coming, his goal. He will be the first to say that but it was a great finish.

“The two lads at the back [James Wilson and Toto Nsiala] were great. They defended really well. Janoi [Donacien] did terrific as well.

“We had young lads out there again. Lads that have come back from international duty as well. Doz [Andre Dozzell] got back at 2am.

“Football has changed though. I don’t have a first X1. It’s about 18 players now and using everyone.”
