Oscar - We Grew Into The Game

Manager Oscar Garcia has admitted we started slowly in the game against Birmingham today, but after a stuttery first 20 minutes he felt we grew into the game nicely.

Speaking to the Official Site after our one nil victory, the gaffer explained that he felt we more than deserved our win based on the way we played for the 70 minutes.

'We deserved to win, I asked the players to be patient and we had to show Birmingham some credit, as they were unbeaten in their last ten matches and were on a really good run.'

The win obviously lifts us into sixth place in the table and Garcia is pleased with that, but it's still a case of taking things one game at a time and he was pleased with our overall efforts today and the performance that the players put in.

The gaffer also admitted that he was contemplating taking off our goalscorer just before he found the net, but as they were unsure on the bench which player to take off, it turned into a stroke of luck leaving the substitution for a few minutes longer as ultimately he won the game for us.

The disappointment from the game was the injury to midfielder Andrew Crofts, and that did take the shine off the victory for the boss.

All Garcia would explain is that it does appear to be a nasty injury to his knee but further scans are needed to determine the full extent of it, but the initial feeling so far is that he has sustained a cruciate ligament issue.

As for the on going Liam Bridcutt situation with Sunderland's interest in him, Garcia said he missed the game today because of a groin problem, but when he is fit, he has no issues selecting him because he's a professional and he remains, for now at least, our player.
