CALLUM STYLES PREVIEWS LIONS TRIP

8 April 2022

Our midfielder spoke to the press ahead of the trip to Millwall this weekend.

ON RELEGATION BATTLE
“We’ve still got seven games left and there’s 21 points available. We’re looking at getting all 21 – that’s our aim and we’re going to try our best to do that.”

ON READING GAME
“It was unfortunate not to get the three points. I thought it was a fair result but conceding late again is a bit of a blow to drop two points. But we’re playing really well, we’re dominating parts of games, so we’ve just got to take that into the next games and put our dominance on the opponents from the get-go.”

ON MILLWALL
“We’ll do what we’ve been doing in the last games and improve our last 20 minutes of the game and not get pushed back. I think that’s the game plan, and we’ll go there and do that.”

ON CONCEDING LATE GOALS
“We’ve spoken about it – we obviously know it’s been happening. It’s not been helping us a lot recently because we’ve been dropping points, but we’ve spoken about it and we’re looking to take that out of our game, to push on now and dominate all through the game – not just up to 70 or 80 minutes.

“I think maybe it’s a mindset where if we’re in the lead, we feel like we need to protect that lead. We’re looking to change that, come Saturday and for the rest of the games, because we can’t afford to drop any more points.”

ON RUN-IN
“We want to win every game that we play, so we’re looking at taking three points from Millwall and taking it game by game to pick up as many points as we can.”

ON BELIEF
“We’re not down yet. Us as a whole community don’t believe that we’re going to go down, so the belief is there. Performances have been there in recent weeks, and we just need to take that into Millwall and the games after that.”

ON HUNGARY
“The whole experience was really good – I really enjoyed it. The lads were really welcoming, the gaffer was sound, the whole staff was really welcoming and it’s a really nice group of lads and staff.

“I was just buzzing to make my debut and play against Northern Ireland and get the win as well, which ticked a box, so it was a great experience.

“Most of them speak English and understand English because the gaffer is Italian, so he has all the meetings in English, which obviously means the lads have to understand a bit of English.

“Quite a few of them speak English – some better than others – so, overall, it was a lot better than I anticipated.

“We’ve got the Nations League this summer and, hopefully, I’ll get called into the squad again. We’ve got England twice, Germany and Italy, so that’ll be some top experiences if I can get myself there and playing against them.”
