INTERVIEW: Fankaty Dabo Blackburn Preview

Defender Fankaty Dabo previews Saturday’s game away to Blackburn…

15 October 2021

Fankaty Dabo looks ahead to City’s trip to Ewood Park and spoke on how the Sky Blues are still looking to improve, despite their blistering start to the season.

After returning to the starting line-up and helping City to a resounding 4-1 win against Fulham, Fankaty Dabo says he’s always looking to improve his game.

“I know I can improve and I know I’m not resting on where I’m at.

“The gaffer picked me for Fulham, so I had to repay his confidence and hit the ground running, after missing three games and having reflecting on what happened against Cardiff it’s just another learning curve.

“It’s a long season, we’ve got a target and we can see something we’ve never been able to see at this level, us as players, so we’ve just got to keep going."

The Sky Blues will have their tails up following the home win against Fulham, prior to the international break, but Dabo says City must stay grounded ahead of their game against Blackburn.

“We can’t look to far ahead because as soon as you do, you lose sight of what’s in-front of you, we’re taking it game by game and once we get to a specific point we'll re-evaluate where we are.

“We’re expecting a difficult game, of course, because every game in the Championship is difficult.

“We know what they’re like and we only took one point off them last season, so we’ve got a point to prove and we want to keep up the good form and change our away form so it's going to be a good game but a difficult one.”

Despite not getting the results they desire away from home, Dabo believes that City have all the tools in place and believes their home form can translate to picking up points on the road.

“The Luton game was the only blip so far this season and as long as I’ve been here. We’ve just got to start winning away from home.

“We play what the game gives you, we approach it as an away game because away games are different to home games, but you can’t go in tentatively because you 100% know you will lose, it’s only a matter of time until we turn it around.

“Theres always been that self-belief and belief in the team and now its coming.

“We can’t get ahead of ourselves because the Championship is a relentless league, but as long as we keep out heads down it can continue."
