Paul Green is eager to cement his place in the side for Lincoln's run-in after making a goalscoring return at Crewe.
The defender put the Imps ahead in a 1-1 draw after replacing the unwell Adam Watts.
And Green is keen to seize his chance and feature heavily in the remaining four matches.
"I've been itching to play for weeks now. I got my chance and hopefully can keep my place," he told BBC Lincolnshire.
"I picked up an injury early in the season but I've been fit for a while and not playing has been hard."
