INTERVIEW: Kyle McFadzean Looking For First Away Win

McFadzean returns to Burton this weekend...

13 September 2019

Sky Blues defender Kyle McFadzean is hoping to help City to their first away on Saturday as he returns to his former club Burton Albion.

McFadzean captained the side and picked up an assist in last week’s 3-2 victory over Blackpool and is looking forward to the trip back to the Pirelli stadium.

“It’s a hard place to go as it’s a small tight ground with a good atmosphere but I am sure we can go there and get a result.

“We are winning our home games and getting draws away which is a good sign but you still need those away wins and we need to be looking at doing that sooner rather than later.

“Everyone is clicking more and more each game and we are improving as a squad.

“I think you can see the improvements each game especially in the second half on Saturday where I felt we stepped it up to another gear.”

With injuries and suspensions causing changes in the back four so far this season, McFadzean emphasised the importance of the healthy competition for places within the squad.

He said: “I think what is good with this group is that there is no bitterness and sulking, we all want to help each other and it is good to have that competition because it keeps all of us on our toes.

“We are starting to settle now as a group and getting to know each other because we are a completely new squad.

“We all get on really well, we want to do well and most of all, we all want to win.

The Sky Blues are currently second in Sky Bet league One however McFadzean stresses that the league table in May is the only one that counts.

“Don’t get me wrong we would prefer to be around the top of the table rather than the middle or bottom but it’s also where you need to be in May and hopefully we can be.

“I’d say this is the best start I have had at a club but we need to build on results especially around Christmas and a strong finish is key.

“We have a good strong squad and keeping everyone fit is the main thing; you need that experience alongside the good young players too.

“You need a combination of a lot of goals and around 20 clean sheets to get promoted, we’ve got a couple already and we need to build on that for a successful season.”
