INTERVIEW: Dom Hyam Previews Gillingham Clash

The defender looks ahead to the trip to Priestfield...

24 August 2018

Sky Blues defender Dom Hyam told earlier today how him and his team mates are focused on getting a positive result this weekend.

City travel to the Priestfield Stadium to face Gillingham, as they look to put the defeat to Blackpool behind them.

Hyam is expecting a tough challenge from The Gills tomorrow afternoon, but is focused on coming away with all three points.

He said: “They're a good side, they've been in League One for a few years now so they know a lot about the league.

“It will be a tough game but we've just got to try and win the game and get some points.

“There's always pressure, but we try and put that behind us, we've learnt about that. It's all about the next game now, we've just got to try and focus on getting the three points and putting on a good performance for the fans.

“We've created a lot of chances, but it’s just about putting those chances away. Especially at home, we've created a lot of chances and had a lot of shots.

“It’s just about the end product and final pass, cross or shot, which we're working really hard on in training so hopefully we can score a few goals tomorrow. 

“Goals can come from all sorts places around the pitch and we always work hard on set-pieces. Anywhere we can get a goal, we're always working hard on that and hopefully we can get a few tomorrow. We will see.”

Hyam has started all five games in all competitions this season and is one of only a few to have done so.

The defender had to bide his time last season to break into the starting eleven, but since then he hasn’t looked back and has been an ever present in the back four.

“I had to bide my time and I am grateful for getting the opportunity towards the back end of last season.

“I'm just delighted that I've managed to keep hold of the shirt and hopefully I'll get a lot more games in than last season.

“I enjoy playing with both of them (Jordan Willis and Tom Davies) and we all get on really well. At the end of the day it’s just down to who the Manager selects, hopefully we can have a good partnership and keep some clean sheets.

“Defensively we take great pride in keeping clean sheets and doing the dirty work, long may that continue. Hopefully we can start scoring some more goals and start to push further up the league. “
