Lincoln City players are shocked by manager Chris Sutton's resignation.
"There was no hint at all, he was very complementary and full of praise for the performance," striker Drewe Broughton told Sky Sports News.
"He was certain we were turning a corner and going to get results sooner rather than later.
"We haven't had the best of starts and in some games we have gone close but I'm sure we'll turn a corner. It was a good performance against Burton.
"I've always admired Chris as a player and he was the main reason why I signed for Lincoln."
