INTERVIEW: "I'm Feeling The Best I Have Felt In A While"

The defender is enjoying life with the Sky Blues...

16 November 2018

Sky Blues defender, Junior Brown is feeling fresh and ready to go ahead of this weekend’s trip to the Pirelli Stadium to face Burton Albion.

City return to League One action after two cup games in the last outings, in which Junior hasn’t featured in.

Manager, Mark Robins suggested after coming back from long injury lay-off from last season, it was a chance for the defender to re-charge.

Now, with City travelling to Burton tomorrow, Brown is feeling fit and ready to take on the Brewers.

He said: “It’s one of them, as a player, you want to hit the ground running but even when you think you are ready, you aren’t realistically.

“You have seen the signs with Jodi Jones coming back and Tony Andreu as well, they have sort of been in and out, so that’s one of them things you have to take the rough.

“You have great weeks and then you have bad weeks, it’s just one of them things, patience is needed but I am feeling good and I am sure over this month or two hopefully it will be the same for them guys as well.

“I feel ready to go again.

“Obviously it’s a squad game and we have got a great squad so, it’s a decision, obviously as a player you always want to play more but that’s part and parcel of football, I have had a good week to kick on and I am raring to go tomorrow.

“I’m feeling the best I have felt in a while now, coming back from the injury but yes I am enjoying it now, especially when the team is winning and doing well.

“I am performing better, the team is performing better, so why wouldn’t I be.”

City take on a Burton side who suffered relegation from the Championship last season on the final day.

Brown admitted it will be a tough ask against a good side tomorrow, but with the momentum the team have and the support in the away end, the Sky Blues will give Burton ‘a good run for their money’.

He said: “I have played against them quite a few times in my career so far, so it’ll be a tough ask.

“They have come down and have sort of a hangover but they are starting to look to kick on and they have had some good results in the cup, so, it will be a tough ask but I think if we go there and play anything like we are capable of it I think we’ll give them a good run for their money.

“I think it’s a massive help when you go to away games and you have got a great away support, it makes a massive difference.

“The fans are there to support you, sort of pick you up when things aren’t going quite right and it’s a massive help especially when you go to clubs that are local and you outnumber them or match them, it’s almost make that like a home game.”
