Clifford: Similar performance required

23 March 2014

Midfielder says Blues must match display at the Kassam Stadium when Oxford United visit

Midfielder Conor Clifford has targeted a similar performance to the game at the Kassam Stadium when Oxford United visit Roots Hall on Monday night.

Clifford, who scored his only goal of the season in that 2-0 win against the U’s earlier in the season, says that was one of Blues’ best performances.

He believes they will need more of the same in front of the Sky cameras on Monday evening at Roots Hall.

Clifford said: “That was a really good performance on the day and we outplayed Oxford and deserved the three points.

“We came into that came on a bit of a bad run if I remember rightly and turned it around with a great win there.

“Hopefully we can do the same against them this time around to get us off this run that we’ve been on.

“It was a good day for me because I got my first goal for the club, and I was pleased with my all round performance.

“It’s frustrating that I’ve not been able to score since, it’d be nice to get another one against Oxford United on Monday.”

Clifford’s season has been disrupted by two red cards which have meant he’s been suspended for seven of Blues’ games this season.

The midfielder admits it has been frustrating, but hopes to play a big part between now and the end of the season.

He added: “The second red was really annoying because I don’t think it was a red card but it meant I missed four games.

“Luckily for me it was Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday rather than being out of action for a month.

“It’s frustrating because I’d have liked to have been available for them games, seven is quite a lot.

“I was back in the side for the last couple of games, but just hope between now and the end of the season I can play my part.”
