21 February 2017

Centre back is an option to replace the injured Anton Ferdiand...

Ryan Inniss is delighted to be back on the pitch for Blues and is ready and waiting if a place in the starting XI becomes available.

Th 21-year-old centre back was a second-half substitute for the injured Anton Ferdinand on Saturday who won’t make a recovery in time to keep his place against Peterborough tonight.

With the possibility of making his first start since the beginning of November, Inniss is raring to go if selected.

“It’s been a long time coming for me,” he said.

“It’s tough being in the gym but I know I had a great set of lads to come back to.

“I’ve been on the bench for the last couple and the lads have been playing great.

“It’s hard luck for Anton getting injured but it’s an opportunity for myself if I get the nod to be ready on Tuesday and try and carry on what the lads have put together in terms of the sequence of results.

“If the lads are playing well then it’s easier to take.

“If the team are struggling and you’re still not playing then you take a look at yourself and think what’s going on here.

“But the lads have been playing and I’ve been happy enough to wait for my opportunity. 

“I’m hoping it has come now but we’ll see what team is picked tonight and go from there.”

The Posh have won once in there last five home games but Inniss believes they will face a side fired up for three points.

But he is confident Blues can pull off a result at the ABAX Stadium.

“With the lads we’ve got and the dressing room we’ve got we feel we can turnover any opposition in this league.

“I say turnover because we’re a big scalp for any team now.

“We’ve had great home form and we’ve been decent away so we want to match what we’re doing away from home.

“Peterborough are a good footballing side but we can play as well and mix it up if we have to.

“Whatever is needed on the night then I’m sure we can produce.”
