INTERVIEW: Brooke Norton-Cuffy looks back on Middlesbrough draw

The defender reflected on the 0-0 draw...

14 May 2023

Brooke Norton-Cuffy is looking forward to heading to the Riverside on Wednesday and building on a draw in the first leg of the play-offs.

City were held to a goaless draw at the Coventry Building Society Arena, as they were unable to the breakthrough.

The draw leaves the tie set-up for Wednesday night, with both sides looking to progress to the final and face either Luton Town or Sunderland…

 

Reflecting on the game…

“I think it’s a tough one to take. I feel like we had a lot of chances in the game. We had spells and they had spells and it was a good game to be involved in.

“It’s not a bad result going into the next leg.”

 

Keeping a clean sheet and avoiding defeat…

“You always try to go out and win the game, but keeping clean sheets and not losing the game is very important and it keeps you in it.

“We still have another game to play, so let’s hope we can go again.”

Ben Wilson keeping a 21st clean sheet…

“Ben has been brilliant all season and 21 clean sheets is phenomenal, and he has the record for the amount in a season for the club.

“He’s doing brilliant but it’s the whole team as well not just Ben. The whole team fights to keep clean sheets and we will keep doing that.”

 

Applying pressure to the Boro defence…

“We felt like we applied a lot of pressure and we got into good areas, but sometimes we didn’t have the quality we normally do.

“We put pressure on them, and I felt we had spells where we dominated.”

“I feel like they probably did their homework on us. When you play a team a few days ago, you can watch clips and do analysis and sus things out and fair play to them I though they nullified some of our threats.

“It was a decent team performance but we have so much more to give. We’re going to need everyone again to go and win and that’s the plan.”
