Tough Month Ahead

Tough Month Ahead

David Gold is looking forward to the games this month as it will provide a real test for the squad.

Although Blues are currently going through a little blip, David Gold believes this month will be a good one for us as we face some tough games, and he believes we will come through it with flying colours.

Speaking to the local press Gold said:

'This is a tough month but when the going gets tough, it is time for the tough to get going.

'There are lots of big games on the horizon but we are a big club and we will need to show our mettle. The board have done their bit and so have the players and manager this season.

'If we come out of October there or thereabouts that will stand us in good stead.

'Fans will be edgy because there is such huge expectation this season.

'Supporters have seen the side and players we have got and thought what would we want to be different?

'Would they want to change the likes of Gary McSheffrey or Nicklas Bendtner for anyone else in this division?

'The answer is resounding no. When you throw in a fit David Dunn people will think 'wow, this is some team.'

'It has been fine this season but I am sure the supporters will be disappointed when we look at the opportunity we had three games ago. Fortunately we had a good buffer of points and we are in there with around 12 other teams battling away. Of course we would like to be five points clear like Cardiff but we are only 12 games in and have hardly scratched the surface.

'We've got a bigger squad than Cardiff and we will see how they cope with injuries and suspensions.'
