LIAM ROBERTS PREVIEWS MIDWEEK CLASH

14 August 2023

The Reds 'keeper spoke to the assembled media as we welcome Peterborough United in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday evening.

ON HOW HE'S SETTLED IN AT THE CLUB

"How has it been a month already! I've settled really well. I'm settling into sunny Yorkshire! Great coaching staff, great group of lads. Just really delighted to be here and ready to kick on.

ON THE START TO THE SEASON FOR THE REDS

"If you'd have said four points from the first two games we'd have snapped your hand off at the start of the season. It's a positive to build on, looking forward to being back home tomorrow.

"First game I thought we were ruthless in front of goal, I think that's why we got such a good scoreline. Saturday, we started really well and then they kind of worked us out. It's chalk and cheese. Tough place to go, we take the point, then have a positive reaction and a positive result tomorrow at home."

ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ROLE OF A GOALKEEPER

"From when I started, it was more about being a goalkeeper. Coming towards being a professional for ten years, in those ten years it has completely changed. It's more about your feet, you get more touches with your feet now. Everything has developed around that - you're now an outfielder with gloves on! That's the part that I like to develop and that's the way football is going. It's only going to progress that way."

ON STARTING THE SEASON BETWEEN THE STICKS

"I'm absolutely honoured to represent the Club. I was never brought in and told 'you are definitely playing'. There's competition all over the pitch for every player, I'm honoured I got the nod and I've got to do everything that I can to keep my shirt."

ON PETERBOROUGH UNITED

"It's going to be a tough game. They missed out unfortunately the same as us last year so they're going to be one step further much like us. They play football, they've got pace down the wings. We just have to be ready for it. I think we are ready. Just have a positive performance and I'm sure positive results will come off the back of it."
