Hutchinson "looking forward" to Den return

Defender speaks ahead of televised Birmingham game...

20 October 2017

Shaun Hutchinson is relishing the opportunity of playing in front of the Sky Sports cameras as Birmingham City visit The Den on Saturday evening.

The defender - who captained the side for the first time at Brentford last weekend - has become an integral part of Neil Harris' set-up since his arrival in 2016 and the 26-year-old spoke to of the need to "put things right" against The Blues after defeat by Barnsley last time out.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back to The Den," he said. "With the bad defeat against Barnsley still fresh in the mind, we're all wanting to put things right with a big performance against Birmingham City.

"We tend to be a stronger side on the bigger occasions, such as when the Sky Sports cameras are present. Birmingham will be similar to us in not allowing many shots on target and leaning on the more physical side of the game. It'll be a tough evening, but I'm really looking forward to it."

The defender received the honour of the armband at Griffin Park in the absence of Steve Morison, Shaun Williams and Byron Webster and expressed his pride at the appointment when asked.

"It was a massive honour to lead the team out against Brentford last Saturday. My family were there and they were really proud, too.

"The result wasn't what we wanted, obviously, but it's a day I'll remember forever."
