Ingram's case for the defence

13 September 2013

Matt Ingram says Wanderers’ impressive defensive performances are making his job between the posts a lot easier.

Gary Doherty and Leon Johnson will be hoping to start together for a fifth successive league game when the Blues travel to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, but Anthony Stewart and Kortney Hause have also impressed so far this season, underlining the strength in depth that Blues have in that position.

“There are a lot of young lads in the team and they (Doherty and Johnson) help lead you through,” Ingram told Chairboys Player.

“They’ve got experienced heads and they’ve been there and done that. It’s great having them in front of me.

“Kortney and Anthony are also top lads and good players. I’ve got a lot of confidence in whoever plays in front of me.

“I’ve had a few clean sheets so far this season and I’m happy. I’ve done what I’ve needed to do and hopefully I can continue that.”

Ingram has been one of the Wanderers’ most consistent performers so far this season, picking up a number of man-of-the-match awards, and the 19-year-old feels he and fellow keeper Charlie Horlock are continuing to develop under the guidance of Lee Harrison.

He said: “Lee is still pushing me on, teaching me new things and giving me new things to try out.

“It’s not necessarily for games, but if they work in training then I will try them in games - he’s helping massively.

“You can see Chazzy developing. Each day he comes in and he’s learnt something new and he’s got a bit more confidence.

“He’s loving it out on loan and I’ve been to watch him a few times – he’s looking good!”
