Wigan and Reading clashes particularly important says Blues midfielder

Trevoh Chalobah placed added importance on Town's next two fixtures against Wigan and Reading, but also admitted that every game from now until the end of the season needs to be treated like a cup final.

Blues face the Latics away from home on Saturday before facing the Royals at Portman Road a week later - the two teams currently sitting 20th and 21st in the league table respectively.

"Picking up draws against Derby and Stoke was good, but we really need to be winning games now and hopefully that will start on Saturday," the 19-year-old said.

"We can take positives from the last two performances as well and that is the standard we need to set ourselves, we have to be consistent until the end of the season because every game is like a cup final for us.

"The next two matches are particularly important, though, against teams in and around the relegation zone, so we need to make the most of them.

"Starting with Wigan this weekend I think it will be a tough trip. They're a physical side, but we beat them at Portman Road in December so we can go there believing we can get the job done."
