Pre Burton Albion | Christian Saydee

23 September 2022

Christian Saydee spoke to the press as we prepare to welcome Burton Albion to Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow.

The forward netted his first Town goal with a stunning strike against Port Vale last weekend.

Now Saydee is looking to build on his impressive display at Vale Park when he takes on former side Burton tomorrow.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a loan spell with the Brewers last season that saw him make 18 appearances for the club.

And ahead of tomorrow's game, the striker talked about settling in at Town, his impressive goal last weekend and his relationship with manager Steve Cotterill.

ON SETTLING IN:

"It’s been good, I’ve got all with everyone. The boys have really helped me settle in and I’m enjoying it. 

"The lads have been so good. It’s the same with Streety (Rob Street) and Wini (Carl Winchester). We have all gelled really well. 

"I'm enjoying it so much. Skip (skipper Luke Leahy) plays quite a few tricks, he does quite a few things. But it’s all good.” 

ON HIS FIRST TOWN GOAL: 

"It was a really good feeling, to come here and score straight away – I was buzzing. 

"As a striker, that type of thing can play on your mind. You want to score goals because that is what you are supposed to do. 

"So for that first one to come, I’m very happy."

ON HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH COTTERILL:

"The gaffer, I really like him. He has really pushed me since I have been here and I feel like I’m going to become a better player under him. 

"Training is tough but it’s to make me better so I am enjoying it."

ON SINGING AN INITIATION SONG:

"I sang Alicia Keys 'If I Ain’t Got You.' I was trying to hit a chorus but I think they clapped me off before that. 

"In and around the dressing room we mess around and it’s great to have that. It draws you closer to have that banter with each other and that chemistry then continues out onto the pitch."

ON HIS TIME AT BURTON: 

"I enjoyed my time at Burton – they were all good lads and it’s the same here. 

"I’m buzzing to see them all again."
