INTERVIEW: Michael Doyle previews tomorrow's clash with Notts County

6 April 2018

Sky Blues captain Michael Doyle insists that him and his team mates owe the supporters a performance this weekend at Meadow Lane.

City will be hoping to bounce back from defeat this past Easter Monday when they come up against Notts County tomorrow afternoon.

Reflecting on the result to Yeovil last time out, Doyle insisted it is important to go and get result to lift everybody.

He said: "Monday was a tough day for everybody. Tuesday it hit us even harder. We came in and went through things that we need to do to make us better and that was a hard day.

"We need to focus now on what is coming up Saturday and the way we have dealt with it is the best way you can.

"We do not laugh and joke about it. Some defeats are hard but that was really tough. The best thing now for us is to not draw a line under it but to look back at this game as a turning point for our season.

"We are a big club and the expectations are big. People will look at the goals and presume it was a bad performance but it was all about in individual errors. We made a big mistake for every goal.

"We need a result as quickly as possible. It is important to go and get a result now to lift everybody."

The Sky Blues come up against a Notts County side who are in a similar position to themselves, as they both look to secure a play-off place and push on for an automatic spot.

City will take over 4,000 supporters to the home of the Magpies and the captain is looking forward to the game.

"We have got a big travelling support heading over so we need to do them justice.

"They are a good team. They have been amongst the top teams all season. They are good at what they do and they are big and strong.

"We have to back ourselves. All the focus is on ourselves. We are trying not to worry about them.

He added: "If we can get a result tomorrow then the other results will look after themselves. When we play well the results usually go our way.

"We owe the fans and the club a good performance."
