INTERVIEW: Brooke Norton-Cuffy talks development, final run-in and team togetherness

City take on Reading this weekend...

21 April 2023

Brooke Norton-Cuffy is looking forward to the final run-in, starting with Reading this weekend at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

City entertain the Royals off the back of a draw midweek at Ewood Park, when Ben Wilson scored in the final minute of stoppage time.

That draw leaves City a point off the the play-off places, with three games remaining in the Championship.

Brooke told how he and his teammates understand the position they find themselves in, but they are taking it game-by-game...

Looking back at Blackburn Rovers result…

“The way the game ended was crazy.

“We did well to get a point. first half wasn’t good enough, but we came out second half and put the pressure on them and we were all buzzing.”

 

Three games left to go…

We try not to look at the fight we’re in.

“We try to take it game by game, but the boys know how big it is at the moment and we know we’re as good as we want to be and if we all stick together and work hard, who knows where that can take us.”

 

Personal development…

“I feel like I’m developing well. I feel like as the season has gone on, I’ve got better and things are going well and I think I’ve improved in the games, especially recently.

“Since I’ve been here, the defending side has improved a lot and the boys at the back have helped me out and we’ve kept a good number of clean sheets since I’ve been here.”

Togetherness in the squad…

“This team is very together. Me and Fadz were on the bench and we were like ‘go on Ben go up there and get yourself a goal’ and it happened and you saw all the staff are celebrating and all the boys were going crazy because it means a lot to us.

“Every single player here counts and we will need everyone throughout the course of the season and we’ve shown that with subs coming on and making an impact and everyone is needed.

“We all stick together and work hard for one another.”

 

The Sky Blue army…

“The fans are amazing. They always come and sing all game and give us all the support and we can’t Thank them enough because they’re brilliant.”

 

Trying to break teams down at home…

“I feel like sometimes when people come to the CBS Arena, they feel like they can’t go after us and press us and it can be hard to break teams down.

“Away form home teams play more expansive, and we can break on them and find gaps and sometimes it helps us.”

 

Intensity of the Championship…

“The Championship is very intense and the way we play is very intense and the games come thick and fast, but we had to dig deep and get our recovery right and keep going.”
