The freezing weather has brought out the best in Dany N'Guessan.

Lincoln City's French-born midfielder plundered four goals to help Peter Jackson's side remain unbeaten in January.

And the goals show earned him the League 2 Powerade Player of the Month Award.

Jackson will be hoping for more snow if it continues to bring the best out in a player he believes is emerging as a star in the division.

N'Guessan, 21, said: "It's not about me, it's about the team. All I'm bothered about is Lincoln continuing to do well and win games.

"But I must admit the cold weather has been a bit of a shock. I think it can help focus the mind."

N'Guessan arrived at the Imps on a free transfer from non-league neighbours Boston in 2007 after spells with Glasgow Rangers and Auxerre.

Sincil Bank is not quite so glamorous, but N'Guessan could not be happier in his current surroundings.

He added: "We have good team spirit and I want to play my part.

"It has been an up-and-down season so far but we have been on a decent run lately and if we continue that way I think we can finish in the top six.

"Things didn't work out for me at my other clubs but that is in the past now - all I want to do is focus on the future with Lincoln."

Jackson said: "He was a player who was here before I arrived but I'm aware of his background, which is quite impressive.

"He's got fantastic stamina and balance and has been a lot more consistent this season.

"He's the best player in League 2 at the moment.

"His English isn't that good. But even though he doesn't understand the rollockings, or pretends not to, he seems to speak the language well enough when he wants a pay rise!"
