Bruno Ribeiro Talks Squad

29 November 2016

Following the draw last weekend against Shrewsbury Town, there had been a noticeable amount of changes to the side in recent weeks.

This has been due to injuries to the likes of Sam Foley, Anton Forrester, Jerome Thomas, Martin Paterson and Ben Purkiss and upcoming suspensions to Anthony Grant, Kjell Knops and Sam Hart.

However, with the strength in depth within the squad, those that have come in to the side have done well.

Two players to have caught the eye of manager Bruno Ribeiro were French duo, Anthony de Freitas and Sebastien Amoros.

The two joined the club in the summer from France and despite suffering injuries, they have came into the starting eleven in recent weeks.

Bruno commented: “Sebastien Amoros and Anthony de Freitas have done well since they came into the side.

“I think Amoros needs to learn English football better, he needs to improve his passing more, he gave away a few balls in the middle of the park.

“De Freitas is fantastic, he can play number 6 or number 8 and after being injured he’s played the last three games and he’s doing well.”

Another man who has caught the eye in recent performances is striker Rigino Cicilia.

The striker has scored three goals in his past five league games, starting just two of those.

However, Bruno doesn’t feel Cicilia is quite ready to start the game and believes he is having good impact from the bench.

He said: “When he come’s on he helps us so much and when he starts sometimes he’s slow at starting and I didn’t start him because its not easy.

“We don’t have enough wingers fit and we played with Sam Hart and Kiko and for me they did well, they need to get forward more, but I’m happy with them.”
