Greaves: ‘We’ll be going there to win’

8 February 2022

Defender Jacob Greaves is looking forward to coming up against Derby County at Pride Park as the Tigers look to return to winning ways.

The Rams are seven points off safety in the Championship, having received a 21-point deduction, but Greaves is adamant it will be a tough game.

“They’ve shown a lot of togetherness,” said Greaves.

“They’ve got a good manager who’s got them fighting for their lives. They’ll do their homework on us.

“It’s a game that I’m looking forward to, being able to go and play in front of 30,000 fans. I’m sure we’ll take a fair few as well. I’m really looking forward to it.

“We’ll have our way of going about it and I think it’ll be a very enjoyable game. It’s a game that means a lot. They’re down there scrapping for their lives so we can’t take them lightly.

“We’re in a bit more of a comfortable position than them but we’ll be dying to get three points.”

After losing 1-0 against Preston North End on Saturday, Greaves is confident the team can respond by picking up three points against the Rams.

“All season we’ve lost games and then come back and won games,” added Greaves.

“I know we had a dry patch towards the start of the season when we didn’t win many games. After recent defeats, we’ve been able to bounce back and put a string of wins together.

“Hopefully, we can go on another little run. We seem to win games on the bounce and then lose a couple. On Tuesday (against Derby) we’ll be going there to win.

“There are a lot of experienced heads in the dressing room who will take our minds off the defeat (against Preston) and we’ll go there with full confidence to go and get a result.”
