7 May 2021

Kyle McFadzean is looking forward to the future as the Sky Blues prepare for their final match of the season against Millwall.

The Sky Blues have secured their Championship safety heading into Saturday’s game after a good run of form at the back end of the season.

The defender concurred that a meeting helped galvanise the team and helped them to regroup at a vital stage of the season.

He said: “It has been a tougher season without fans, and we have had a few Injuries so it has been tough but it has been a good season.

“Ever since we have had that meeting after the QPR game we have only lost once. It wasn’t just the senior lads, everyone got involved and we wanted to make sure everybody had their own input.

“We came out of that meeting on the same page and we were saying we were letting ourselves down and things can happen and you have got to put them right on the field.”

He says the team can afford to look forward to the final league game and they’re determined to finish on a positive note.

He said: “We need to enjoy this because there has been a lot of tough games where there has been pressure on us, we should be going into this to enjoy it.

“We want to finish on a high and definitely don’t want to lose, if we can get to 55 points then that is a really good season in the Championship.”

He then spoke about how the team have high aspirations heading into next season and that they are hoping to get off to a good start in front of the Sky Blues supporters.

He said: “A lot of the players from this year will benefit for next year and all the young lads have been good anyway and they are only going to get better.

“If we can get a good pre-season, we have a lot of good players to come back into this team and the Gaffer could strengthen it.

“The team on the field for the last two years has been outstanding, to stay up in a pandemic as well without fans is an even bigger achievement. Hopefully we can get off to a good start, get a win at the Ricoh and build on that and I am sure they can help us kick on.”
