Ingram: ‘Confidence Levels Are Really Good’

10 September 2021

Matt Ingram says the team are in good spirits ahead of the trip to South Wales to face Swansea City.

The Tigers return to action with a long journey to the Stadium as they start a run of six games in four weeks in the Sky Bet Championship, and Ingram is optimistic of a return to winning ways.

Confidence levels are really good in the camp,” said the goalkeeper.

“I think our performances have been better than what the results have shown. Apart from the Derby County fixture, our performances have been very good and we just need to tighten up on certain aspects across the pitch.

“The Championship is a ruthless league. If you make a mistake, you get punished and if you don’t take a chance, you get punished and that’s the epitome of the Championship.

“It’s about tightening up certain aspects of our game and we’re looking to do that, starting with Swansea City.”

The 27-year-old has played in all five league fixtures and kept his first clean sheet of the season in the goalless draw against AFC Bournemouth in the last fixture before the international break.

And the shot-stopper was impressed with the performances of the defenders in front of him.

“The two defenders in front of me have been brilliant,” added Ingram.

“Whether that’s Alfie (Jones), ‘Dish’ (Di’Shon Bernard), ‘Greavesy’ (Jacob Greaves) or Sean (McLoughlin), they’re all great and bring confidence to the team.

“They’re all young players who are learning, but I think they’ve done really well adapting to the Championship from League One.”
