Midfielder delighted to be invovled in the first-team but insists he is keeping his feet firmly on the ground

Teddy Bishop was spoken of his delight at making his full Town debut- but insists he isn’t getting carried away just yet.

The Academy scholar put in an impressive performance in the heart of Blues’ midfield, as Mick McCarthy’s claimed a deserved share of the spoils against Derby last weekend.

The midfielder’s performance certainly drew the plaudits from fans and teammates alike, but Ted knows he has to keep working hard to keep his place in the side.

“It was good to be involved at Derby and I felt I did okay, once the first 20 minutes or so went by and I managed to get a few touches, I felt more at ease,” Bish told the Club website.

“Obviously Derby are a very good side but I thought we more than matched them and on another day we could have taken all three points.

“On a personal level it was fantastic to feature but it’s massively important that I keep my feet on the ground and I can’t go round thinking that I’ve made it.

“The hard work starts here and whilst it’s nice to have been involved in the first-team, I know there is a long way to go yet and it’s up to me to keep progressing and try and show the manager what I can do.

“The manager and TC have been brilliant with me, as have all the lads and they have helped me and the younger lads such as [Matt] Clarkey and Darren McQueen feel part of the group.”
