INTERVIEW: Tony Andreu Talks Plymouth Argyle

The midfielder previews the upcoming fixture...

17 August 2018

Sky Blues midfielder Tony Andreu is looking forward to taking on Plymouth Argyle at the Ricoh Arena this weekend, as City look to kickstart their season.

City remain without a win this season, but Andreu is confident that three points on Saturday would be a good start to the campaign.

He said: “The mood is good.

“We are still at the beginning of the season, so we have to be positive. It’s not the start we wanted but if we can win on Saturday it is actually a pretty good start.

“We just need to focus on Plymouth and getting the three points because we really want them and that could kick start out season.

“I think for every team you need three points to kick on and we want to do that as quick as possible and its another chance tomorrow.

“The mood is really good and the coaches are very positive and they try to put is in the best condition and now it’s down to the personnel and the performance in the game tomorrow.”

Andreu missed the majority of the 2017/18 League Two season with an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, with him playing just a handful of games beforehand.

However, he believes League One will suit him and his team mates this season, with more teams looking to play football on the ground.

“There is definitely a different standard as it is a higher league.

“It is still very physical and I think tactical wise it is probably better in league one and more teams want to play on the ground which is good for us as we want that we want to control the game and play on the ground.

“I think the league is better, the first two games were hard and it’s going to be hard for sure throughout the season but we’re confident in this league so it doesn’t matter, we just want to win games.”

In the opening game of the season, City took the lead against Scunthorpe, but two counter-attacks late on saw The Iron come away with the three points.

Andreu admitted him and his team mates need to take the chances they are creating in order to turn performances into wins.

“I think we created a lot of chances against Scunthorpe, but we didn’t score them, but we created chances.

“Against Wimbledon it was a different game, but we still got a point.

“When we play our game we definitely create chances. There are a lot of good players in this team, quick players and technical players.

“You can create 100 chances, but if you don’t score it doesn’t matter, we have to be clinical and that’s what the coaches are trying to do, I’m sure it will come.”
