Greaves: More To Come From Me

11 December 2020

Jacob Greaves has expressed his desire to keep on improving as he continues to impress in the first team.

The defender, who recently signed a new three-year deal with the Club, is determined to build on his recent form as he looks to keep his place in Grant McCann’s team.

“It’s been really good to have a run in the team – as a player that is all you want,” said Greaves. “We’ve been doing really well, too, and picked up a lot of wins. Last weekend at Oxford was our first draw in the league this season and it felt a little bit like a loss with us only picking up a point, but we may look back on it at the end of the season as being a good point.”

“As a defender, you want to be playing consistently to try and get into that rhythm that you can sometimes lose when you’re on the sidelines. However, when you’re not in the team you can still do everything right in terms of training and any games that you are involved in to get that rustiness out of your system.

“I think the more games you play, the better you’ll get and that’s the same with anything really. The more practice you have at something, the better you’ll become at it. There’s always room for improvement, though, and that can be done through the analysis that we do both with the staff and individually.

“There’s room for improvement all-round for me. I’ve been working a lot on my long-range passing after training, and then during training I’ve just been looking to be as tidy as I can be in keeping my pass completion high – not just by passing sideways but by passing forwards to try and break lines. I’m still only 20 so there’s a lot to still improve on.”
