The Defender Is Now Hoping For More Appearances For The Seasiders After His Home Debut Against Brighton

Kirk Broadfoot was delighted to finally make his home debut in the 1-1 draw against Brighton last weekend and is hoping for more games in front of the home crowd in the future.

The former Rangers man has suffered with a few injuries since his transfer but is hoping he can now maintain his fitness and enjoy some more time on the pitch.

"I've trained for a couple of weeks without any niggles, so touch wood the injuries stay away and I can get a run of games and help the team push up the table."

It's almost two months since he made the move to Bloomfield Road and Broadfoot is pleased to finally get settled in England.

"I've eventually bought a house, which I've now been in for three weeks. My girlfriend and baby are down now so it's made things more homely."

On the football side of things the 28-year-old is hoping he and the team can build on the performance against Brighton.

"I was delighted to be playing. I thought the performance was very good from the boys and we deserved more than a draw.

"We were a bit unfortunate for their goal but these things happen, you learn from it and you move on from it and make sure it doesn't happen again.

"The fans were great and got right behind the team. I've watched a couple as well and they do get right behind the team, which always helps the players and I thought they were brilliant."

Back-to-back away games now lie ahead for The Seasiders and the defender is aiming to get back to winning ways with a couple of victories.

"I think they will be very difficult games as I've found every game in The Championship is. 

"Obviously being away from home makes it more difficult. Derby had a bad result at the weekend so they will be looking to bounce back, whereas Sheffield Wednesday will be strong on their home patch with a big crowd, so it will be two very difficult games but they are ones we are looking forward to," said Broadfoot.
