INTERVIEW: Ryan Giles Cardiff City Reaction

The Sky Blues man was delighted with three points...

26 November 2020

Ryan Giles reflected on a positive night for the Sky Blues as they secured a 1-0 victory against Cardiff City.

Tyler Walker scored the only goal of the game as City made it back to back clean sheets recording four points in their last two outings since the international break.

Giles was pleased with how City were able to stay resolute and come away with a well-deserved win.

“I thought the boys were brilliant again.” Giles said.

“That’s two clean sheets in two games and that gives us a good baseline to win games, as well as defending like we have done in the last few games.

“They had two big strikers in the second half and it’s hard to defend against so credit to the boys and we take that into Norwich.

“It is easy to see their threat and that’s what they ultimately wanted at the end of the day and to try and nullify that is tough because they have got quality players and I think the boys did that brilliant tonight.”

Giles spoke of how Walker had led the line well in the absence of Matty Godden, where he says having healthy competition shows quality can be found within the squad.

“We have a lot of quality up the pitch, it is a shame we don’t have Godders as you see he does contribute a lot to our goals.

“Tyler has brought that again and it is good competition throughout the squad which is ultimately what we need, I’m very pleased for him and it was a very good finish as well.”

Giles played in a more advanced role against the Bluebirds, occupying one of the forward roles, predominantly on the right-hand-side and it was something he enjoyed.

“I have played as a winger through my academy days, so it is nothing new really and the Gaffer told me on Tuesday, he was going to play me there.

“I had a few chances, one which took a deflection which went for a corner and the second one I have cut in and could have done better, but also it’s a good save from the keeper.

“You set yourself goals, I have played in this advanced role and I have enjoyed it, now you have got to build on that and it comes all the way through the team.”
