Lindegaard, who could move on this summer to play more regularly, admitted it has been hard watching from the sidelines.
“For me at the moment it’s not easy deal being on the bench when the team is performing as well as we do,” said the 28-year-old Dane.
“And, of course, when David is also performing as well as he does and has been doing in the last couple of months.
“Of course, everybody wants to play and I’m not different from anyone else.
“I’m sure all the players who are not in the starting line-up every game would say the same and they want to play.
“That’s how football players are. It’s a genetic thing in us - we live for the thrill of playing and the adrenaline you get when you step out on the pitch.”
