Sido: "I'm just giving my best"

Defender discusses recent form and looks ahead to Peterborough.

28 February 2019

Sido Jombati believes the Chairboys have been ‘unlucky’ not to get a result in recent weeks but is ready for the test when the Blues travel to Peterborough on Saturday.

Jombati has been an ever-present under Gareth Ainsworth so far in 2019 with consistent performances earning him a regular place in the side.

The Portuguese right-back has made a successful transition to centre-half for the majority of this season and believes morale is still high despite three consecutive losses of late.

“We have to remember the best games we’ve had this season. We’ve had good results; we went away at Sunderland which is one of the hardest grounds and we were unlucky not to get a win so you just have to keep moments like that in your mind, pick ourselves up and know we are more than capable of going anywhere and giving anyone a good game.”

Jombati has been partnered alongside Adam El-Abd for most of the games this season but due to El-Abd’s suspension, found himself paired with Anthony Stewart against Gillingham and enjoyed a different defensive approach.

“Anthony’s good because me and Adam have got similar pace but with Anthony we can be more aggressive on our line because he’s a quicker player so if we get done in-behind, hopefully Anthony can get across.

“It’s different because they’re quite similar players but with Adam he has to use more intelligence and with Anthony he can be more on the aggressive, higher line which gives less space to the midfielders.

“When you play in different positions you always become a better player. You understand the game better and I think I’m more complete now.”

The 31-year-old put in a man-of-the-match winning performance at the weekend and is looking forward to a tough test against Peterborough on Saturday.

“I’m happy, I’m just giving my best. I think a few of our players are playing well so anyone could have been man-of-the-match at the weekend.

“We’ll try to beat them again but we know they’re going to be on top of their game. They won’t want us to do the double over them, so they are going to be at the top of their game but we’re going to try our best.”
