More to come from EDS squad, says Nmecha

GROUNDS FOR OPTIMISM: Felix Nmecha believes that Manchester City's EDS squad are on an upward curve
Felix Nmecha believes the best is yet to come from Manchester City’s EDS squad.

Paul Harsley’s young charges went into the current international break on a high after three successive wins in the Checkatrade Trophy, Premier League 2 and UEFA Youth League.

Along the way the EDS side only conceded one goal, beating Tranmere 1-0, Blackburn 3-0 and Shakhtar Donetsk 4-1 respectively

However, ahead of the resumption of the EDS side's campaign away in the Premier League 2 at Leicester a week on Friday, Nemcha is adamant that there is plenty more to come from the side.

“We’re all working hard for each other. In our last league game against Blackburn we did well to get three goals and to keep the goals out,” said Nmecha.

“So, we were happy with the performances but there is still more to come.

“I think we all feel quite good in the dressing room. We’re working well together but we know that we can do more 

“I think that we have still got a lot more in the tank.

“We need to finish our chances better and just be a bit more organised, but we are getting there."

Nmecha impressed on a personal level in the victory against Blackburn, bagging a two-goal return to round off what was a fine all-round display from the 18-year-old.

And after seeing his pre-season preparation disrupted by injury, much like the EDS team, Felix believes he is still warming to the task.

“I’m always happy to score a goal and I hope there’s more to come,” Nmecha added.

“I feel good but I’m still coming back. The league game against Blackburn was my first 90 minutes of the season.

“I’m just happy to be playing and to be working for the team and obviously it’s nice to score too.”
