INTERVIEW: Jack Grimmer Looks Ahead To MK Dons

The defender is hoping for another win in the FA Cup this weekend...

26 January 2018

This weekend the Sky Blues travel to MK Dons in Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round action, as they look t continue their run in the competition.

City will be taking almost 8,000 supporters along with them to the game as they look to build on their Third Round win against Premier League side Stoke City.

The man responsible for the winning goal in that game was defender Jack Grimmer and he told the local press earlier today, that him and his team mates are looking forward to the fixture.

He said: I can see it all over social media, the fans are really looking forward to the game and I’m sure it will be a great day.

“I’ve had it before when you go into a big FA Cup game on the back of three points in the league and luckily enough, I’ve always gone into it in good form in the league because I think it does make a really big difference.

“The fans will hopefully be in good spirits for the game and I think that’s down to the fact that we beat Swindon.

“Thankfully in the last game I managed to get another winner which was an amazing feeling and an amazing day for the club so hopefully on Saturday it’s more of the same. “

Tomorrow’s opponents have had all change this week as they appointed a new manager in the form of Dan Micciche, following the sacking of Robbie Neilson.

It’s been well documented in the past the effects a new Manager can have on a side and Grimmer is expecting a reaction from MK.

“I think it’s well documented their struggles this season hence the reason that unfortunately their manager has found himself to be out of a job.

“I think that probably came a bit early for us and I was hoping that would last longer and stretched out a bit. They’ve got a new manager in and you can expect a reaction.

“I’ve had it before where a new manager comes in and automatically everyone ups their game so we’ll definitely be expecting that on Saturday.”
