It’s been some first year in England for Fraser Fyvie. Signed from Aberdeen in the summer, the 19-year-old’s appearances have all come in the cup competitions as he finds his feet south of the border as so many of his compatriots have done in previous seasons.
His performances have been impressive; solid in front of the defence with a will to win that has been a key element in recent victories over Macclesfield Town and Huddersfield Town.
That desire is unwavering, and ahead of this weekend’s massive FA Cup quarter final tie against Everton at Goodison Park, the Scotland Under 21 international reiterated the team’s intentions now they are just 90 minutes away from a Wembley semi-final:
“I think it’s a great draw and a game we’re all looking forward to, we’ll take anyone on at the moment.
“We want to go all the way in this competition so we’ll have a strong belief whoever we play and wherever we play them.”
That was certainly the case in the fifth round against Huddersfield when a 4-1 win inspired by Callum McManaman’s man of the match display eased the team to a stage in the competition they haven’t stepped foot in since 1987.
Fyvie praised the performance of his team mate in the last round, but wasn’t surprised at the headache he caused the Terriers’ defence, saying;
“We went into that game with a good attitude, perhaps started a bit sloppy but growing into it and getting the breakthrough with Callum’s goal midway through the first half.
“We see him produce moments like that in training on a regular basis, and now he has to keep doing it in game situations to make more Premier League appearances, which he wants like everyone else does.”
