McLoughlin reflects on goalless draw at Birmingham

14 March 2022

Sean McLoughlin was pleased to help the team extend their unbeaten run away from home by holding Birmingham City to a goalless draw in the Championship.

The Tigers have picked up results on the road against Sheffield United, Queens Park Rangers and Peterborough United over recent weeks, and McLoughlin says the players are slightly disappointed to have not come away with all three points from St Andrew’s.

“We were coming (here) to win the game but a point on the road against anybody in this league is a good point, especially with where we are in the league table,” explained McLoughlin.

“We had a couple of chances, so we could’ve nicked it, but we’ll take the point and move onto next week against Coventry (City).

“I can’t really remember Matt (Ingram) making any unreal saves or us being under too much pressure. We’re a bit disappointed we didn’t get all three points but it’s good to get another point on the board.”

McLoughlin has been ever-present since the appointment of Shota Arveladze in January, and has continued to be one of the standout performers in the team.

The 25-year-old defender insists that he is still working hard to improve every game.

“I feel like I’m improving each game,” said McLoughlin.

“I think since the new gaffer has come in, his assistant (Peter van der Veen) has worked with me on an individual level. He’s worked with a lot of the players individually on little things to help us better ourselves.

“I just want to keep improving each game to take my game to another level. Hopefully, I can stay in the team until the end of the season and prove that I belong at this level.”
