'We must keep climbing up the table'

6 December 2012

William Edjenguele hopes Coventry can continue to climb the table against Walsall...

Coventry City defender William Edjenguele believes City have taken huge steps forward over the last two months, but insists there is still a long way to go.

The 25-year old moved to the club in the summer on a free transfer and is currently enjoying a consistent spell in Mark Robins’ side.

Edjenguele will start his tenth consecutive game in all competitions if Robins selects him for the side against Walsall, despite the amount of competition for places.

The French defender has been happy at the progress made since Mark Robins took over, but hopes to see Coventry continue the good run and push up the table.

Edjenguele said: “We must win against Walsall. We must. We have been doing well lately but the work is not finished and we need to keep going and win games.

“We are still not in the position we want to be in as we need to be challenging at the top of this league. The way we have played over the last few weeks shows what we can do, so this must be achieved.

“We have definitely got better over the last two months but we can still do better. Every game at the moment is a must win for us.

“As a player, you want to win every game and it is another game so we will definitely want to win it.”

Edjenguele got his first City goal in the 3-1 win at Colchester United despite the assistant referee originally ruling out the goal for offside.

Thankfully, on that occasion the referee overruled his assistant and gave the goal, and Edjenguele hopes he can contribute more goals in the future.

He added: “I was really pleased to get off the mark for the club as I think I can be a threat at set-pieces and I really want to score more goals.

“I was really happy with that as scoring your first goal for a club is always special. However, the linesman put his flag up and it ruined my celebration a little bit. 

“I think everybody has to take the opportunity to score as we all need to contribute. Everybody has to step up and score as David (McGoldrick) has been doing a lot of that on his own this season.

“It has been good to see more people get on the score-sheet in recent matches so hopefully we will all have a chance of scoring against Walsall.”
