It was a frustrating game today but it could prove to be an important point come the end of the season.
100% man. I thought we played well but at the end of the day what really matters is the score line and I think we have given away two points today. The boys, without a doubt, worked their nuts off and really put a shift in, but this is what’s going to happen a lot of the time when you are one of the best teams where a lot of teams are going to come and set up for a draw and they did that today, especially second half. We’ve just got to find a way to break them down. But it will come.
Obviously, you are primarily a right-back but after Spillane went off injured today you had to fill in at centre-back. Are you familiar with playing across the entire defence?
Yeah, I’ve played a lot of games at centre-back, right-back and left-back. I’m not too sure how bad Mickey is but hopefully it won’t be too bad and we will get him back sooner rather than later.
You haven’t been at City very long and a few weeks after you joined, the news broke about your nephew. The Chelmsford fans have already done a few things in order to raise money for example: the walk to Wealdstone a couple of weeks ago and the ice bucket challenge on Monday at Concord. Do you have a message for the fans that have donated towards the fund?
100%. I have been all over social media and every supporter that I have been able to, I have spoken to them and I am more than grateful, more than I could ever explain. I couldn’t be more thankful than I am right now. The fans have been amazing and I can’t speak highly enough of them.
You have a lot of Football League experience with clubs like Leyton Orient and Cambridge United. How did Rod sell the club to you in the summer?
He didn’t really sell the club to me, he sold himself! My big thing is: I just want go somewhere and be happy and play for someone who 1. Believes in me and 2. I believe in them. So after having a 30-45 minute conversation with Rod I was sold to be fair. He is a top manager, a top bloke which is more important. So that’s how it went down really.
