Paul Farman says he is in the best form of his career as he lauded Lincoln City's defence for becoming a cornerstone of their impressive form.

The former Gateshead goalkeeper has been a revelation this season and is already a contender for player of the season following some sparkling displays.

But the former Blyth stopper says he has been aided by Lincoln's defence with centre-backs Tom Miller and Andrew Boyce both catching the eye in City's 10-game unbeaten run.

"I am certainly in the form of my career and I can't begin to tell you how much I love playing for the club," he said.

"It's a great team to play for at the minute.

"But I have to say all  the boys in front of me have been absolutely fantastic.

"If they keep defending like they have been doing then we will not go far short in games."

    He's a very good shop stopper of balls anywhere off the ground, but grass cutters he seems to have a problem with, but not seeing the shots from behind the goals myself he could be unsighted for them. But he does seem on occasions to have a problem whether to come out to collect or clear some balls. But I don't know if that's a goalkeeping problem in general. But more often than not he brings off some fine saves

    "If they keep defending like they have been doing then we will not go far short in games." Without wishing to be a party pooper, but if our defence has been playing so well, then why is it that our goalkeeper is yet again a leading contender for player of the year! Five clean sheets out of 23 games, and with Farman in the "form of his life" tells me otherwise.

    What a lovely guy! But why does he always rub his balls on the middle of the pitch before kick off?!
