INTERVIEW: Kyle McFadzean Hull Preview

Defender Kyle McFadzean looks ahead to the trip to Hull...

29 October 2021

Kyle McFadzean says City are eager to pick up their away form, in a bid to keep their strong start to the season going.

Unbeaten at the Coventry Building Society Arena this season, the Sky Blues are looking to take some of that form onto their travels on the road.

Defender Kyle McFadzean says City are looking to change their fortunes and are determined to start tallying the points, starting with Hull this weekend.

“They’re at home, so they’re going to want to be good at home, but they’ve struggled there this season, we just need to go and be on the front foot, like we are at home.

“There’s no getting away from it, we’ve not really been good enough away this season, we need to start tomorrow.

“We haven’t played that bad away from home, I just think its the spells, we have 10-15 minute spells where we tend to concede one or two goals, we need to stop conceding silly goals, and if we concede one, not to concede another after, we’re going to be compact and get a clean sheet and if we do that we’ll have a good season.

“We’ve had a talk this week as a group, the players and the staff, and we’ve pinpointed some things which were good and that we can learn from and hopefully we can move on and improve away from home.

“There’s things that we should be doing better, and we’ve looked at that as a unit, as a back five, we need to be better, we’ve got to be better as a team.”

McFadzean also praised the Sky Blues support this season and spoke on the squad as a whole and the next few games, too.

“We want to put on a good performance for our fans there, we want to entertain them and score goals and not concede them.

“The atmosphere’s good, its always better when you’re winning, but we’ve got a good squad this year and if you’re not performing there’s people raring to go, we’re a lot stronger than last year and anybody that has come in, doesn't look out of place.

“We’ve set high standards this year. Last season, we finished well and we’ve started well this year, we don’t want to lose games and there’s some tough games coming up, but we want to go into the next International break in good form, over 30 points.

“If we had won a couple more games we’d be in the top two, but we take every game as it is, one game at a time and that’s all we can do, we can’t look too far ahead, we’ve got to make sure we can take the full three points, we’re going there to win tomorrow."
