Henriksen’s start to life at City

Markus Henriksen looks back on his first few weeks with the club and assesses the first two games of his City journey so far.

After arriving on loan on January deadline day, Henriksen spent the next week getting up to speed with his new teammates before making his debut in the 3-2 win at home against Derby County.

Henriksen said: “In the first game for a new team there are always those little bit more nerves because you don’t know what to expect, plus you want to show yourself off and get a good start. I really enjoyed the game, even more so because we won. The supporters and the atmosphere was fantastic, especially at 3-0 it was amazing.

“A lot has happened in the last three weeks! With the games coming thick and fast, the time has gone so quickly.”

Last weekend’s 1-0 defeat away to Leeds United followed but now the midfielder eyes the chance to bounce back against Sky Bet Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

He continued: “I have played against Leeds before and I knew they would try to be on top from the beginning. They were very aggressive, and we gave away a cheap goal so that made it difficult for us. It was tough but I think we are not happy with the performance, how we started but we started the second half better. But still it was disappointing to lose and I think we have learned about it heading into West Brom.

“It’s another tough game as well. All games in the Championship are difficult but at home with the crowd with us, this is a great chance. We didn’t take it last week and now is a new opportunity. It’s up to us how we are going to respond and we want to get back on the horse and get the three points with a good performance.”

Tickets are still on general sale for Saturday's match versus the Baggies (3pm KO).
