Cresswell praises Blues' spirit

15 December 2012

Never-say-die attitude delights Blues defender

In his pre-match interview, Ryan Cresswell praised Blues' never-say-die attitude that had helped them to 11 games unbeaten.

Further evidence of that spirit was on show as Blues came from 2-0 down to pick up a point against in-form Bradford City.

And for defender Cresswell, who got Blues back into the game with a header from Kevan Hurst's corner, it was a case of 'I told you so'.

Cresswell said: "I said in the build up to the game that we have a never-say-die attitude here at the moment.

"That was certainly the case again today because we showed tremendous spirit to come back from 2-0 down and get the point.

"At the start of play we would have wanted six but when you're 2-0 down, even at home, with ten minutes to go, you will take a point.

"When we went 2-0 down we were a bit shocked because we had been on top in the second half but we're positive in the dressing room afterwards because we got something from the game.

"It's important we keep the unbeaten run going and having come from behind we will take confidence into Friday's game."

Cresswell has seven goals to his name this season following his 80th minute header and he's hopeful of reaching double figures by the end of the season.

He added: "I'm pleased with how many goals I've got so far, I give Barry Corr a little bit of stick because I've got more than him.

"I think I've got the most goals of any defender in the Football League and I'd like to get a few more as the season goes on.

"As a defender of course clean sheets are just as important, I thought we were slightly sloppy in our play early on against Bradford and that cost us.

"But we responded well and even when we had made it 2-2 we were telling each other we need to get back to our half and try and find a winner.

"That tells you a lot about the confidence of this team at the moment."

A full interview with Ryan will be on Blues Player tomorrow.
