Sean Raggett wrote his name into Lincoln folklore just three years ago.

It was the centre-back’s late goal that saw the Imps win at top-flight Burnley and become the first non-league side to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals for 103 years.

But he was a thorn in the side of his former club when Pompey visited Sincil Bank, leaving with a clean sheet and all three points.

Ronan Curtis and John Marquis got the goals in a 2-0 victory that saw the Blues climb into the top six.

Raggett is not getting carried away with plenty of games remaining, but is pleased to be part of a side performing so well.

He said: “We’re getting to a stage of season where we’ve hit a really good run of form and are building some momentum.

“It’s important that we were able to carry that on at Lincoln and you always want to get the points when you go back to your old club.

"You always want to get the points when you go back to your own club."

“I’ve got nothing but love and respect for them, although it was nice to come here and keep a clean sheet.

“I feel comfortable next to Burge and the more times we play together, the more we understand each other’s game.

“We’re not looking too much into our current position because there’s still a way to go before the end of the season.

“You don’t really glance at the table too much currently and we’re just concentrating on a big game against Sunderland at the weekend.”

Pompey also have a huge FA Cup clash to look forward to in March and Raggett has an extra reason to be excited about their fifth round tie with the Gunners.

He explained: “I’m an Arsenal fan, so it’s perfect for me. We were watching the Bournemouth match on the way up to Lincoln and supporting them.

“My dad’s actually a Tottenham supporter, while my mum is Liverpool, my brother’s Manchester United and my sister’s Chelsea, so it’s a bit of a strange one!”
