INTERVIEW: Ben Sheaf Birmingham City Preview

The midfielder looks ahead to tomorrow's clash...

19 November 2020

Ben Sheaf looks ahead to Birmingham City as the Sky Blues are involved in Friday night football at St Andrew’s.

Sheaf is eager to continue to improve after settling down with the Sky Blues and the more games in which he is able to play, he feels like he is gaining important experience.

Sheaf said: “I am really enjoying it, they’re a really good bunch of lads and quite a young group so we have a lot in common and I am enjoying the game time and learning every day in training.

“The mores games I play, the more experience I gain and that’s all I looked to do when I came here, get my head down, work hard and get in the team if I could.

“I feel like I know most of the lads petty well and know the area well and I am enjoying my football. I want to do well at the club, take the club to the next level and that’s my ambition. I work hard each day and try to improve so hopefully we can get a result at the weekend and kick start our season.”

In recent results, the Sky Blues were unfortunate to come away empty handed against the likes of Watford and Nottingham Forest.

However, reflecting on those performances, Sheaf is eager to stamp out mistakes which may have halted City’s progress in collecting points.

He said: “Individual errors, there bound to happen at any level so the higher up you go the more you are going to get punished for them and if we can cut them out, we will give ourselves a much better chance. These games are more important as they are the teams around us.

“There is more pressure on these games so we are going to take it in our stride and enjoy them, trying to get as many points as we can.

“We feel like we have players that are able to compete in every game and we have got enough talent and the squad is good enough that we can get results in this division.

“We have got a very young squad and we all have ambition to do well in this league. Each game we are getting to know each other as teammates and performances have definitely improved, it’s just that final bit of getting results now that is important. “
