INTERVIEW: Going there to win

22 September 2015

Jason Kennedy looks ahead to the Liverpool game on Wednesday

Midfielder Jason Kennedy spoke to us ahead of the trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on Wednesday night.

Speaking first about the draw at York, he said: "It almost felt like a defeat on Saturday. We were disappointed when we came in because they went down to ten men and we should have saw the game out and got the three points.

"We are picking up results though and I think that's five unbeaten in the league now. The performances are there and we're getting goals and we'll hopefully keep the wins rolling on." 

"You could see the disappointment on the faces in the dressing room after the game," he told us. "The manager didn't need to tell us that we'd let the game get away.

"It's hard to put that disappointment behind you but we've obviously got a big game against Liverpool to enjoy. We've got to roll our sleeves up and push on as a team." 

"I'm enjoying things at the moment and it's nice to be involved in every game," he confirmed. "I'm doing different jobs for the team and getting used to playing in different positions. I'm learning as I go along and it's good to be involved when the team is doing so well.

"If you put me on a football pitch and asked fans where I was playing I don't think many people would say I'd be out on the left wing! It helps the team and the gaffer has used it for me to try and get in the box and get on the end of things. I've been getting in those positions and I probably could have scored more goals when I've played there, to be honest.

"We've got lads on the bench and sat in the stand who can come in and do a great job so if you are playing you've got to do your best whatever position you're asked to fill."

On the Liverpool game he said: "The nerves will start ahead of kick off but we've got to go there and enjoy it. These occasions don't come round too often when you're playing in the lower leagues so we'll go there and do what we've been doing.

"The lads who have played in the cup run so far have been brilliant. It's a tough decision for the gaffer because whoever he picks there will be players who miss out. I'm sure the lads will all get together and whoever plays will give it their best shot.

"We don't know what to expect or what team they'll play so we'll prepare the same as we would for any other game. All we can do then is give it our all.

"In terms of games like it, I was on the bench when Bradford played Chelsea last season. Before the game the lads were talking about keeping the score down and we went there and won, so you never know with football. We'll definitely be going to Anfield to win."
