Captain's Praise For N'Zogbia

Captain's Praise For N'Zogbia

Stiliyan Petrov has tipped Charles N'Zogbia to be key for us in our league run in.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail the midfielder said of his colleague:

'In the first half he was coming in, he was creating space for us and he was dangerous for the opposition. Charles is motivated to show what he;s all about. He went through a tough period and now he has started to get back. He has scored goals, which is good for us, and we will need him for the final 11 games.'

Petrov also adds that in reality we just never got going again in the second half, and we lost the battle in midfield, meaning N'Zogbia and Albrighton never had the chance to get us out of the hole we were in.

'In the second half him and Marc stayed out wide and made it difficult. We couldn't get out of the traps and we were constantly under pressure. When you have wingers they take you out of trouble, but in the second half we couldn't do it.'

Again it wasn't helped by the fact that we resorted to hoofing the ball for the most part, but the annoying thing is we still did have the chances but when you're on a run like we are, you don't get the luck.
