"That is what you want as a footballer, that expectation of trying to win something"

Gwion Edwards says he welcomes the pressure of trying to make an instant return to the Championship.

The wideman is set to face his former club Peterborough at Portman Road on Saturday, with Blues two points off the automatic promotion places.

Speaking in an interview in the matchday programme, Gwion said: “When it was known that we were going down, the thought around the Club was ‘we will go straight back up and win the league’.

“So that was the aim from the end of last season and plans were put in place. That’s the challenge for us and it does put pressure on us but it’s a nice pressure to have because if we achieve it, it’s something that we will always remember and the fans will as well.

“It was different last year. When I joined I didn’t expect us to be in a relegation battle. I didn’t expect us to be at the top of the table either but I thought pushing for the Play-Offs maybe, like the Club had done in the past.

“That didn’t happen but the expectations we have this season, I like that. That is what you want as a footballer, that expectation of trying to win something.

“If we win the league, it will be an amazing experience but there is a long way to go if we are to achieve that.”
