INTERVIEW: "We Have A Really Good Chance This Year"

The defender previewed the clash against Bolton...

9 August 2019

Summer signing Kyle McFadzean joined the Sky Blues “to get promoted” and is fully focused ahead of the trip to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

Fadz produced a man of the match display, on debut against Southend United last week, and is intent on achieving promotion this season.

McFadzean said: “I’ve come here to get promoted and I want to play as long as I can. I feel like I’ve still got a few more years left.

“I just wanted to come here and play football, that’s what I want to concentrate on and try and get promoted.

“I feel like we have a really good chance this year, the recruitment has been good and there’s a good atmosphere around the club.”

Fadz remains fully focused ahead of the Sky Blues meeting with Bolton, which will now go ahead despite Wanderers ongoing off-the-field struggles, which he admits has made it a tricky game to prepare for.

“We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and prepare properly, hopefully the game goes ahead. I’ve spoken to one of their lads and he’s just as much as us waiting to see what will happen.

“It’s really disappointing obviously because they’re a massive club and you don’t want to see any club in this position but we’re just going to have to prepare properly and get ready for tomorrow.

“We’re just preparing properly and getting focused on tomorrow and we’re just going off what team they played last week so we’re fully focused on them tomorrow and we’re fully ready.

“We’ve just got to deal with it, whatever it is, we’ve still got to go out there and get three points at the end of the day.”

Kyle believes that the level of competition for places at the club can only be an advantage as the season goes on.

“There’s Dom behind us and Dom’s a really good player, he’s pushing us, he’s been a bit unlucky not to start the season which I’m sure he thinks that as well. It’s good for competition and may it continue.”

He also spoke of the discussions he had with manager Robins which played a big factor in his arrival this summer and is settling in nicely to his new surroundings.

“I’ve settled in really well, they’ve all been really welcoming, which is 10 to 11 new players anyway, so it’s been quite easy, it’s been really good.

“The main thing was the gaffer, obviously the club is massive anyway, that speaks for itself but the gaffer, I spoke to him and straightaway I knew I wanted to come here.

“The style of play, that we play, suits me and I think helping the young lads as well, that’s good to help me in my career because I’ve got a bit of experience and to help them go forward.”
