With West Bromwich Albion getting our promotion hopes back on track by making it back to back victories in the Championship as we faced Ipswich Town on Friday evening, we now head into Wednesday night’s clash with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium looking to make it three from three.
It could be an interesting clash as Swansea are in tenth place in the table themselves with marginally better form, albeit they have lost two out of the last three but we’ll know what to expect from them and we’ll be aiming to close that gap on Norwich City who occupy top spot.
Speaking to the Birmingham Mail about both games, head coach Darren Moore explained that the November international break had given him plenty of time to work on a few little things, especially defensively and it came together for us.
“As a unit I thought they were very good and all played in sync. To come here and do that we needed to have a performance like that. The international break allowed us to have that performance and to work on things in training. It was perfect for us to prepare for this game and I’m delighted the hard work we put in has been repaid. It’s three valuable points.”
The elusive clean sheet continues to evade us but that just shows that there remain to be improvements that can be made, and that’s what we’ll be looking for on Wednesday evening.
For Moore though, he went on to insist his main focus is outscoring the opposition as opposed to be overly obsessed with keeping shutouts but I’m sure his message is slightly different in private.
