INTERVIEW: Lee Burge Talks Clean Sheets and Burton

The 'keeper is looking to continue good run of form...

7 March 2019

Sky Blues ‘keeper, Lee Burge feels there is a good feeling in the side at the moment as they take on Burton Albion tomorrow night.

City are currently unbeaten in their last five games, which has also included three clean sheets along the way.

Having been out with injury, Lee has stepped back in from David Stockdale and has impressed, helping City win a point at Luton with a last-minute stop and also keeping a clean sheet against Accrington Stanley last week.

Heading into tomorrow’s game, Lee admits the players are confident as they try to make it six games unbeaten.

He said: “It is a very happy camp at the minute, and I think that is showing on the pitch at the moment with five unbeaten and hopefully tomorrow we will make that six.

“That is obviously what we want and hopefully we get the same result tomorrow.

“You obviously do have a look at It (League Table), but you do try and keep away from it and take each game as it comes and try and pick up as many points as you can.

“It has been a good season so far and hopefully we can make the play-offs.”

Recent weeks, City found taking chances more difficult, which was the difference in games when results weren’t going their way.

However, during this run, the goals have been the difference and the Sky Blues have added clean sheets to that dimension as well.

Burge told how he can see the confidence in the strikers in the team at the moment and is hoping they can be the difference again tomorrow against the Brewers.

“I think we just haven’t put as many goals as we should have, but obviously we are working on that all the time, so we just got to keep the clean sheets and then we will get chances.

“The lads are starting to put their chances away and you can tell they are a lot calmer in front of goal, so hopefully we put a few past them tomorrow.

“You can see a confidence change apart from when they shoot against me, but you can definitely see a difference.”
