INTERVIEW: Conor Chaplin Looks Ahead To Walsall Clash

The striker is looking forward to getting back to action...

7 December 2018

Sky Blues striker Conor Chaplin is looking forward to getting back to the games tomorrow afternoon when City travel to Walsall.

The striker came off the bench in the FA Cup First Round tie at the Banks’s Stadium earlier in the season when the two sides met.

Conor admitted he is looking forward to tomorrow and is working on improving his own game ahead of the clash.

“It’s not nice having to fill the days and weekends that have just gone.

“You just want to get back to the game as soon as possible, so we are looking forward to tomorrow.

“I think this is the most I’ve played consecutively, but it’s not something I’m really thinking about it just about being on the green stuff and improving.

“I don’t think much is wrong, we haven’t played as such, even at Fleetwood we played really well first half and in command, by far the best team in the first half.

“Then second half when they scored, it changed it for the worst for us.

“We have just got to find the balance when we are under pressure, which we have been good at seeing things out, we’ve just got to keep it up.”

It was a disappointing last outing for Conor as he missed a penalty against Fleetwood.

However, the striker is looking to bounce back from that and get himself amongst the goals to put that one to bed.

“Me personally I think about games, because I want to analyse them and see where I can get better.

“When I miss a chance I think I should score it annoys me a lot and I don’t stop thinking about it until I score again and it is not something that grates on your mind, just an annoyance.

“It is shared responsibility in the team to get goals. You look towards your players playing upfront 100% to get you goals and that is something we are working on.

“You see every weekend a player’s confidence lift and someone’s drop. I think it is the biggest thing in football definitely.“
