INTERVIEW: Kasey Palmer on Sheffield United defeat and upcoming fixtures

City were beaten by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane...

26 December 2022

Sky Blues midfielder Kasey Palmer says he and his teammates must bouce back as they prepare for upcoming fixtures against Cardiff City and Bristol City.

Palmer came from the bench to replace the injured Callum O'Hare early on at Bramall Lane with City boss Mark Robins admitting that he is "fearing the worst" regarding the severity of his injury.

Speaking to the media after the defeat, Palmer spoke of O'Hare and offered his thoughts on the game.

On Callum O'Hare's injury...

"You saw late on, we were pushing but goals change games and they took their chances today. We need to bounce back now.

"Callum and I are close, so it is never pleasant to see that. I have my fingers crossed for him.

"It's a huge blow for the team and the club. I hope it's not serious and that he's back playing soon.

I've told him to pray that it's nothing too bad. I hope it is better news than we fear."

On the goals conceded...

"We'll look back at the goals and see how we can stop them from breaking from our own set piece. They're one of the best teams in the league, so it's always going to be a tough place to come and mistakes like that are costly.

"We have no time to waste. We have two games coming up in the next week and we need to bounce back and get as many points as we can.

"We tried to fight back and that showed that we have character. We could have got another goal and we kept fighting."

On Viktor Gyokeres' missed penalty...

"Vik' has scored us a matching winning penalty only days ago, so we can't be hard on him. It happens, the best players miss them, even Lionel Messi. It just wasn't our day.

"We have chances to bounce back against Cardiff and Bristol City. Hopefully, we can use those games to get ourselves into the play-offs."

On his and the Club's season so far...

"I want to be inside the top six. We have the players and everything we need to be there.

"If we keep pushing, and if everyone stays fit and strong, we have every chance to get inside there.

"Personally, I am still finding my fitness after a knee problem that set me back. I am now back training every day and I am pushing as hard as I can.

"I love it here. I love the Club. I just want to win games now and continue to develop under a coach (Adi Viveash) who I knew very well at youth level."
