Reaction: Blair on Lincoln City

12 December 2021

Matty Blair felt a point was a fair reward for both Cheltenham Town and Lincoln City on Saturday.

The right wing back netted a dramatic late equaliser to earn a point after Lincoln themselves had scored in the first minute of stoppage time to take the lead.

He thought the game was a good one to be involved in with plenty of end-to-end action against an Imps side who look to play from the back.

"I was out on my feet after about 70 minutes because of the intensity of the game. It wasn't just the last five minutes, it was the whole game," he said.

"Overall a draw was probably a fair result. They created a few chances, we had a couple to go 2-0 up at the time, but it was a mental game.

"They are a very good footballing based team. They play the right way, they do everything right, and we set up to effectively try and pressure them as high as we could and sustain our attacks as well.

"At times they got out and we were open, at times we won it high up the pitch and they were open. It was a very good footballing match."
