“I had a chat with the manager towards the end of the window. He said he wanted to keep as many people here as possible to assess what he had. It’s about waiting for my chance, and I’ve tried to stay positive until I got that chance. Luckily enough, I got the chance, and we got the clean sheet and the win. It has been hard because we have a lot of centre-halves fit now. We’ve not had that situation over the last couple of years. We have to keep training well – and wait for that chance. It was great to get out there and keep a clean sheet. To top it with the win was brilliant. Its all about staying in there.
"Sometimes it’s not just about how well you’re training, its about how well you do on the pitch in games. Hopefully, I’ve given the manager a tough decision. Over the last couple of seasons I’ve found myself in and out of the team. I’ve wanted to just play more regularly. It was a time when we needed to get the result before the break. It’s Man United as well, they have quality. To put that performance in, clean sheet and the win should boost everyone. We more attacking. Saint-Maximim showed that early on with his dribbling and desire to get at players, win corners, creating chances. That’s what the fans want to see and put the opposition under pressure. we worked hard and got the result.”
