City midfielder, Max Sanders, says he is relishing a number of new challenges including a slightly different style of play and playing in a more advanced role. 

The 23-year-old was one of only two outfield players to have played the full 90 minutes against Grimsby in pre-season action on Tuesday night, and says he feels ready to go ahead of the start of the new season. 

“It’s been a really hard pre-season, but it’s been a good one. Everyone has got minutes and so we’re strong and I’m feeling fit and ready to go,” he said. 

“I feel as though I should have played more last season, but that is in the past now and I’m buzzing to get going this year. I want to help the team as much as I can, so I’ve tried to be as fit as possible and I’m ready to go now.” 

Over the course of pre-season, Max has played in a more advanced midfield role which has presented him with new challenges. 

“We still play an aggressive style but we’re pressing a little higher and from the front. Everyone knows their roles and it’s not too dissimilar but there are a few things that are a big change which I’ve enjoyed," he added.

“I can play anywhere within the midfield, but I’ve been playing as a number eight since Mark came in and I’ve enjoyed it. I like getting on the ball, but I still have a lot to work on in that position and I’m learning all the time, so it’s been good.” 

Within only ten days until the beginning of the season, make sure you secure your seat and ensure you don’t miss the action at the LNER Stadium with a bronze, silver or gold membership.
