Lincoln City goalkeeping guru Jimmy Walker becomes very disappointed when he sees teams like Tranmere and Forest Green Rovers drop points in their quest to catch the Imps.
This reverse psychology is all about ensuring the players at Sincil Bank are kept on their toes and never become complacent or over-confident.
Walker told SportsLinc yesterday : “We love the pressure. When teams closest to us win that is good.”
The former Walsall and West Ham favourite has developed Imps’ keeper Paul Farman into one of the best stoppers in the National League.
Farman’s record of clean sheets in league football this season stands at a staggering 44%.
Walker believes his keeper can become a hero in front of a crowd of 60,000 and a television audience of millions at the Emirates tomorrow.
