Man Utd midfielder Lingard values Birmingham experience

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is enjoying his loan with Birmingham City.

Lingard admits he is still learning as he goes with Blues.

He has never been a Championship regular before.

"I always try to score, or get an assist in a game. That's my aim,'' he told the Birmingham Mail. "In the second half they picked up on me a lot, it was hard to get on the ball.

"Even when I did get on the ball they were tight on me, sometimes two or three players.

"That's another learning curve for me.

"Blackpool have got a strong back four. They're big, six-foot-odd. It's good to play against guys like that, they make you physically stronger."
