STANLEY stopper Kenny Arthur hopes he remembers tomorrow’s clash against Lincoln for the right reasons.
The 30-year-old admits his trip to Sincil Bank earlier in the season is cloudy after he took a knock in his kidneys towards the end of the first half and conceded five goals after the break.
The Scot ended up in Lincolnshire Hospital for a couple of days but says he is not after any revenge - and in fact the Imps treated him well.
"I can’t remember anything about the game," said the keeper.
"It is all a blur and then I spent four days in hospital but everyone at Lincoln Football Club treated me well.
"They extended a lot of goodwill at the time and, even a couple of months later, I still got phone calls from people at the club to check how I was.
"It shows the club has good family values and integrity and I really appreciated it."
Arthur has fully recovered and, despite that blip, has been the star man in plenty of games this season for the Reds.
"Looking back, I am happy with my season," said the goalie.
"I think I have given a good account of myself but I am always looking to improve.
"You always want to better yourself and I know there are areas of the game where I can improve and that’s what I am striving to do."
Arthur is one of those out of contract at the end of the season but isn’t looking that far ahead.
"All you can do is do your best and then see what happens. I just want to make sure I play well and if I am good enough then I will be offered a contract - it is the same for everyone at the club.
"I know it is an old cliche, but I am taking it one game at a time.
"At the moment, Lincoln is a big game for us as we want to keep our unbeaten run going and move up the table.
"It is good at the moment as we are in a good run of form and when you are winning it breeds confidence and you obviously enjoy the game more.
"Even when we went through the bad run, the message in the dressing room was the same - if you keep doing things right then we will get a victory and that’s what happened and we have kicked on from there.
"I am one who always remains positive and so if the gaffer.
"We needed to win at Macclesfield and from there we haven’t really looked back."
Arthur did need to pull off a stunning one handed save at Rotherham on Saturday from Ryan Taylor to keep the unbeaten run going though.
He continued: "It is odd in football as when you are on a poor run and losing, I would touch that and it would bounce off the post and go into the net.
"But when you are on a good run, you manage to get a hand to it and it sneaks around the post.
"No one knows why things like that happen but they just seem to."
With Ian Dunbavin suffering from a groin strain and looking likely to be out until towards the end of the season, Arthur’s deputy is Zac Hibbert who was signed from Burscough two weeks ago.
"Zac is a great kid and a good goalkeeper," said Arthur.
"He has a really good attitude and has the ability. He has a chance of a good future in the game."
Meanwhile, manager John Coleman is hoping to put to bed Stanley’s biggest defeat of the season tomorrow.
"Anyone who watched the game at Lincoln knows it wasn’t a 5-1 defeat," said the Reds chief.
"If Kenny hadn’t been taken a blow to the kidney’s we would probably have won the game.
"I am sure the players in that game will be keen to avenge that."
