Pre York City | Christian Saydee

4 November 2022

Christian Saydee spoke to the press ahead of tomorrow's FA Cup game against York City.

The striker has made a big impression at Montgomery Waters Meadow since joining on loan from Bournemouth - with Saydee having registered four goal contributions in his last eight games.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's FA Cup first round tie, the 20-year-old discussed a gruelling few days that saw us travel to take on both Plymouth and Portsmouth last week.

And Christian was also quizzed on how he is settling in at Town, his FA Cup memories and his aims for the season.

ON RECOVERING FROM PLYMOUTH AND PORTSMOUTH:

"I've recovered well and so has the team - the staff here look after us well.  Those journeys are long so it's about keeping focused."

ON LIFE WITH SHREWSBURY:

"From day one everyone has been nice to me. I have got along with everyone, I feel like I have been here for years.

"That has helped me feel more comfortable on the pitch, we communicate well and that makes things so much easier.

"You don't have to force a conversation here. All the boys here are great.

"When I am at home I have my own space. I can chill out. And when I come in, it is good I get along with everyone, and when it is time to work, it is time to work."

ON THE FA CUP:

"I have always been a fan of the FA Cup ever since I watched it when I was younger and I have always wanted to play in it. 

"I remember Didier Drogba when he turned William Gallas - who was playing for Tottenham - and put it in the top corner with his left foot.

"The FA Cup is big. Coming up against the big teams, coming up against the lower league teams. It's great and it's important for us to do well."

ON YORK CITY:

"I think it will be a good game, I think it will be a fight but we are prepared.

"It doesn't matter (they play in a lower league). We still want to do the same things, we still want to get better as a team and we still want to win the game. 

"It is a big competition and we want to get through and get far so I don't think the division the team is in really matters we just want to get the win."

ON YORK BEING THE FIRST OF THREE HOME GAMES:

"Playing at our home ground is always good. Ever since I have been here the fans have been brilliant. They have travelled everywhere that we have played. 

"When they are cheering, we hear them all the time and they are pushing us and it is great."

ON TARGETS FOR THE SEASON:

"I do set targets - to score as many goals as possible. I don't really have a number in my head. I just want to get a lot of goals and play to the best of my ability and help the team."
