INTERVIEW: Max Biamou delighted with Southend win

Biamou and Callum O'Hare come off the bench to secure all three points...

16 February 2020

Max Biamou felt that yesterday’s victory against Southend United was ‘the most important’ type of game to win three points in.

Goals from substitutes Biamou and Callum O’Hare ensured the 5th away victory in 6 games, and Max was pleased with the hard fought win.

“It wasn’t an easy game; the weather wasn’t good”, Biamou told journalists after the game.

“I think it’s very important to win these types of games against teams near the bottom of the league. These are probably the most important games to get three points in.”

The Sky Blues arrived at Southend on a brilliant run of form, but knew that a win against their opponents wouldn’t just be a formality.

“These games are sometimes harder than games against teams at the top of the league, because they don’t play a good style of football so its harder to break them”, Biamou said.

After a goalless first half, manager Mark Robins changed the game with a double substitution just before the hour mark. Biamou and O’Hare came on, and within seven minutes the deadlock had been broken by O’Hare.

The goal came after a superb run by the midfielder, and Biamou is delighted to have the 22 year old at the club.

“It’s very good for me and the other strikers to have him. He’s very skilful and gives us good balls to score goals. That’s the difference between this season and last season.”

It was Max himself who doubled the Sky Blues’ lead after capitalising on a defensive error. It was his third goal in four appearances - three of those from the bench.

Asked about how he feels about his current form, Biamou replied: “Every time I come on I try to change the game; that’s my job.

"Even if I’m not in the starting eleven, I try my best because I have the same goal as the other players. We just want to get promoted and we’re really focussed on this.”

“I try to do my best whenever I come on”, Biamou continued.

“If you don’t win the game, you have to score goals. When you score goals and at the end you win the game, it’s the best. I am a completely different player since I came to Coventry.

"I’m working hard every training session to be a better player.”

The Sky Blue Army travelled in their numbers yet again, and the 1,588 fans were rewarded with yet another away win.

Biamou was quick to thank the fans for another outstanding show of support, saying, “Without them, I wouldn’t be the player that I am at the minute. This is why I thank them for the support and for everything they have done for me.”

“We know they love us and they know we have a team that can get promoted, they try to push us every time we play.”

Next on the horizon is an away trip to Rochdale, and shortly afterwards the Sky Blues host Rotherham United, who they pulled level with at the summit of League One yesterday.

Biamou was keen to stress that him and his team mates are 100% focussed on the end goal; promotion.

“I am focussed to win every game”, he told reporters.

“I don’t care if I’m on the bench or in the starting eleven, I just want to do my job and win the game. If I don’t play and we win, I’m happy.

"I just want to win every game. We have games coming against Rotherham and other teams, but we need to be focussed and win.”

“I’m just happy to play for Coventry. I think if we get promoted, everyone will be happy; fans, staff, the players, so I think this a great opportunity to do it.”
