INTERVIEW: Dom Hyam Burton Albion Reaction

The defender made his return to the side...

15 September 2019

Sky Blues defender Dom Hyam was pleased to continue the unbeaten run to the start of the season, but admitted he was disappointed they couldn’t come away with all three points.

City made it eight games unbeaten to life in League One with a 0-0 draw against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

Hyam and his teammates were In a battle yesterday afternoon, but came the closest to scoring for Zain Westbrooke who hit the post and Gervane Kastaneer who was inches away with a minute to go.

Looking back on the game, Hyam believes City are heading in the right direction following the goalless draw.

He said: “It was an end to end game and I think both teams could’ve won, but I think we had enough chances to win.

“We’re a little disappointed but as long as we keep drawing away and winning at home we’re heading in the right direction.

“Burton are a really good team and have good players especially Akins he can play many positions and he can test you, but I thought we did well and like I say we could’ve won the game.

“I don’t think Marko (Marosi) had to much to do, they had a bit of possession in our half but they didn’t really test.

“But like I say we’re just disappointed we didn’t win the game but a clean sheet away from home is good for us.”

The clean sheet was the Sky Blues fifth of the season a League One in the eight games they’ve played, the highest in the division.

The same feat of five clean sheets in the league took the Sky Blues 25 games to achieve last season.

Hyam joked him and the defence will take all the plaudits but revealed it’s a team effort between all the defenders and the side to keep the clean sheets.

“We will take all the credit between us in defence!”

 “No I think its a team effort, everyone works hard for the clean sheet like everyone works hard to win games and we pride ourselves on keeping clean sheets and we will enjoy this but its onto the next one now.”

Hyam also spoke about the competition for a place in the heart of defence with himself, Michael Rose and Kyle McFadzean fighting for a spot.

“Were all capable centre backs and that’s what you need if you want to push for promotion and good things so the third one is there to step in when available and that’s healthy and good to have.

“There’s no personal problems with us, if one of the other lads starts we want them to do well and we all look out for each other and we all have the same targets.

“You want to play as many games as you can and last year I had a good year and I wanted to go again so hopefully this is the start of that.”
