INTERVIEW: Jack Grimmer Talks Peterborough Clash

22 November 2018

Sky Blues defender, Jack Grimmer is looking forward to Friday night football at the Ricoh Arena against Peterborough tomorrow night.

City welcome the visit from the Posh, as they look to get back to winning ways following defeat last time out against Burton Albion.

Grimmer is expecting a difficult match at the Ricoh, but is excited for the Friday night fixture under the lights.

He said: “They have the best away record in the league and they seem very solid, they obviously have got a way of playing that works for them, so when they come we’ll know their game plan and make for a very difficult match

“They have got a lot of pace in their team which allows them to sit deep, so you’re kind of thinking you’re on top of the game like it was against burton.

“From the matches we have watched we know they are clinical when they go forward.

“They sit deep and seem in control of games and with the pace they have got they are always going to create chances.

“I think it’s a great chance to set everyone up for their weekend, if you don’t get a good result you’re sitting their thinking what you should have done, could have done better so hopefully it’ll be good.

“We played a couple of games last season on Sunday and I think Friday under lights would definitely be a good atmosphere.”

The Sky Blues have lost just one of their last seven games in League One, having gone six games unbeaten.

Despite the run coming to an end at Burton Albion last week, Jack is confident another one can be put together.

“I think players are level headed, it shows you what can be achieved, it was one of the first times that the squad started getting belief we can beat anyone.

“It just shows you, if not easy but it’s doable to put on a winning run together because it wasn’t easy by any stretch, watching from the side, there were difficult moment in the matches which the boys got through.

“It lifts you up the table so quickly in this league if you put a half good run together. So, we have been beaten at burton but if we go 7 unbeaten again I don’t think anyone will be complaining.”
