Defender impressed by never say die attitude of Blues
Defender Ryan Cresswell believes Blues’ never say die attitude can help them continue their excellent form through the Christmas period.
And Ryan thinks that this weekend’s tie against Bradford City will be one of the toughest test for Blues over the next few weeks.
He said: “I think it’s certainly a game the fans should be excited about and look forward to.
“We know we are on a good, and so are they, so it has all the makings of a very good game.
“I watched their game from Tuesday night and I thought they did very well defensively and caught Arsenal out on the break.
“It’s a difficult one to judge though because they will change their formation slightly. Things seem to go through the big lad up top and then Wells benefits from that.”
Following his mistake against Bury on Tuesday, Ryan praised his team mates attitude as they replied almost immediately through Gavin Tomlin.
“I wanted the ground to suck me up but it’s one of them moments, there’s no excuse though,” he added.
“It was my pass and it cost us a goal, but it just shows the never say die attitude of the lads.
“They went straight down the other end and scored to get me out of jail so to speak.”
It’s not just the attitude on the pitch that has changed Blues’ fortunes, Ryan says the belief shown in the squad has played a huge part.
“We knew we had the quality in the squad at the start of the season so it was a case of making it happen,” he said.
“The Gaffer and everyone at the club believed in us though and we’re playing some excellent stuff now.
“We just need to keep building on this run, get three points on Saturday and come out after Christmas still flying.”
