INTERVIEW: Jack Grimmer Looks Ahead To The FA Cup Second Round

1 December 2017

Last weekend, defender Jack Grimmer made his return to the side, following his time out with concussion, which he sustained against Mansfield Town.

Grimmer slotted in at right back in Mark Robins starting eleven in the 1-1 draw against Crawley Town and he was delighted to make his return.

However, he believes that he and his team mates need to be beating the sides in the bottom half of the table, to ensure they kick on in the league.

He said: “It was nice to be back, as a player you just want to play games and I was grateful that I managed to get back into the team, although the result wasn’t what we wanted, I was just great to be back out playing.

“It’s more frustration, we need to be consistent and beating the teams below us.

“I mean this season we haven’t struggled against the teams around us, we’ve beaten most of them and to be good in the league we need to be consistent against the teams that are fighting relegation which in some cases we haven’t been able to do.

“I think we might be more suited to playing away from home because teams come on to us more, as when we’re at home teams park the bus against us and put eleven behind the ball and can be difficult to break down.

“So, we need to get a bit more consistency and beat those teams and hopefully we will kick on.”

Up next, The Sky Blues entertain Boreham Wood in the FA Cup Second Round, in a competition with Jack has fond memories of.

Grimmer has come up against the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea during his career and he is looking forward to action this weekend.

“It’s a competition that I love to be honest, everyone loves the magic of the cup and hopefully we will have a positive result come Sunday.

“It’s the same pressure that we have in the league and it doesn’t change when we come into the cup, the majority of our games we’re expected to win and it doesn’t change, everyone is expecting a good afternoon.

“Every player wants to be in the third round and hopefully get one of the big boys in the next round.”
