INTERVIEW: Dom Hyam Nottingham Forest Reaction

The defender reflected on a disappointing defeat...

3 February 2021

Dominic Hyam admitted it was frustrating as the Sky Blues couldn’t make their dominance count in the 2-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest.

City went ahead after a well taken Max Biamou strike, however the visitors managed to score twice either side of each half to take the spoils.

Hyam thought the Sky Blues had the better of the play but admitted errors at the back played a part in the defeat and stated that they must quickly move on.

He said: “I think there was only one team in it second half and the majority of the game they had ten behind the ball and it was all of us so it’s disappointing.

“That is the thing with this league you have got another game Saturday and a chance to put it right and get the three points.

“We dominated the game second half and one lapse of concentration from us and they have taken the game and the points, stay positive and we can do that to any team, we have to go again.

“It was sloppy on our part (on goals conceded) and we need to look back at them and see what we can do better with them and we cannot dwell too much on it.”

He then spoke how the team have high hopes they can respond in Saturday’s clash against Watford and that City have the capability to take on any side.

He said: “It is an opportunity missed but it has happened now, we have to stay positive and focus on Saturday now. It is a massive game and they are a great side but we can win it and we can do another shock Saturday.

“We back ourselves against anyone, we have got to put a few things right as we keep believing and keep being positive, so we go into Saturday with confidence.”

He also reflected on being made the skipper for the second consecutive game as he added the squad will be looking strong when they are able to get players back from injury.

He said: “It’s something I am proud to do and we are without a few senior lads at the moment so I have got to step up and I happy to do that when I am called upon.

“We are missing a few senior lads so once we get them back, we will be really strong and there will be competition for places.

“The one thing the coaching staff are good at is managing our load, for instance we have had three games in six days and they take care of us, making sure we are ready for games as that’s one thing we are good at.”
