Blyth Out To Prove A Point

28 February 2013

Jacob Blyth has told the club's official matchbook that he is determined to force his way into the Magpies' side and prove that he can be the club's main striker during his loan stay.

Blyth arrived at Meadow Lane on an initial one-month loan from Leicester City earlier this month but has been restricted to 45 minutes on his debut against Walsall. 

In difficult conditions, the striker struggled to make an impact during a disappointing half for the Magpies at the Banks's Stadium. 

Blyth has not featured since being replaced by Yoann Arquin at the interval but insists that he has much more to give in the black and white stripes. 

He told #themag: “It was disappointing to come off at half time, because that’s never happened to me before,” he explained.

“The manager spoke to me and said it was nothing I’d done wrong and that he wanted to change it up with another striker.

“The first 15 minutes, I was learning and adapting. I was figuring it out what to do and what not to do.

“By the end of the half, I was starting to find my feet and I was going into half time confident. But, these things happen in football.

“I’ve got a lot more to offer and Walsall was one of the worst pitches I’ve ever played on. 

"I’ve played on some bad ones in non-league but that didn’t help.

“45 minutes isn’t enough to show what I can do and I feel like I’ve got plenty more to offer.”

You can read the full interview with Blyth in the Carlisle United edition of #themag, which will be available at a price of just £3. 

The 20-year-old speaks about his rise from non-league and how he is determined to reach the top.
