Vyner seizing his opportunities

Zak Vyner says regular game time is proving a massive benefit to himself and other young players in the City squad.

Vyner, who has played in all five of City’s games in both the Sky Bet Championship and Carabao Cup this season, featured in Thursday’s 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa and he is now looking ahead to bouncing back against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday (September 27th, 1pm KO).

He said: “We look forward to the league and to keeping that league run going and putting in a good performance over Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday.

“We’re getting consistent game time now. Me, Tayls (Taylor Moore), Tyreeq (Bakinson), Antoine (Semenyo) and the other young lads are showing we can do it. We’re getting the chances game after game, it’s a big thing and to get the experience and consistency into our game you need games.

“We’re taking it with both hands and we’re looking forward to the next one whenever it comes.”

Vyner was talking in his post-match interview, in the aftermath of the Carabao Cup exit on Thursday evening. Anwar El Ghazi, Bertrand Traoré and Ollie Watkins fired the Villains into the fourth round and Vyner admitted the fixture was City’s toughest challenge yet.

He added: “I think they were a bit more clinical than us. It’s not nice to go out or lose any game. We wanted to win, to challenge and we knew they were a good team. The two goals in quick succession didn’t help and then we went a bit gung ho to chase the game they showed their class in punishing us at the end. The boys dug dep and the best thing about football is we can go again on Sunday.

“That was a big test today, they had a good team out with good quality players, we dealt with it at times, at others we needed to control it a bit better, but it was definitely our biggest test of the season so far.”

City’s Championship fixture with the Owls will be exclusively streamed on Robins TV.
