Greg Halford has given his first interview since joining the club, and the on-loan Rotherham man is seemingly settling in well at St Andrews.
The loan move comes a little bit out of frustration, with Halford admitting in his interview that his time at the New Y0rk Stadium has been “strange”.
“Its a club with great history and a club that is going places, especially with the manager in charge
I want minutes and as many games as possible. I haven’t played all that much this season and who knows what will happen at the end of January.
Its been very strange at Rotherham,” he said.
It seems that Halford has been bought in primarily to be somewhat of a “utility man”. Despite this, the 30-year-old defender said that he does want to hold down a particular position in the future, and make it his own.
The former Nottingham Forest man also emphasised the importance of a strong Christmas run, with Blues facing a large backlog of games during the festive run-up.
“The manager has said work hard, settle in as quick as possible and work as hard as you can to get into the team- when you get that shirt, don’t let it go.
“It’s not an overly big squad so he wants me to be as versatile as I can to cover as many positions as I can. Eventually I would like to settle down into one position towards the end of my career, but I’m here to help and get as many minutes as I can.
“Anyone can beat anyone in the Championship. What you need to have is consistency, and to go on a little run at the right time. Christmas is an important period and if you can pick up a few wins and go into the new year with some momentum, it will stand you in good stead.
“Home form hasn’t been where the manager wants it to be but if you want to get out of this league, your home form has to be spot on,” finished Halford.
