Harry Pickering suffered no reaction to his recent hamstring injury when returning against Lincoln City at the weekend.
Pickering, 19, made his return to first-team action as a second half replacement for James Jones, but he couldn’t inspire an equaliser that would have seen us leave Sincil Bank with the point we probably deserved over the balance of play.
One of the positives from the game was the return of the versatile Pickering, who has played at left-back and in midfield this season.
Following the 1-0 defeat to the Imps, Pickering said: "It was very frustrating being in the gym and not being able to play, but I worked hard and I've come back earlier than I thought so I'm happy with that.
"I feel fit and that I can do a job for the team."
"We need to get results when we go away from home and we didn't do that.
"We have to try to find a way to score goals away from home. But the belief is there, you can see that in the changing room. Everyone believes we are going to win before every game.
The midfielder added: "It is surprising considering the talent we have in the changing room but I'm sure it will come. One will go in for us then we will kick on from there hopefully.”
