Jennings wants 'massive' Crawley win

Coventry City midfielder Steven Jennings believes the Tuesday night match against Crawley Town is a ‘massive game’ for the Sky Blues.

The former Motherwell midfielder scored his first City goal in the 3-0 win over Arlesey Town when Roy O’Donovan’s low cross found Jennings to tap home and complete the win.

Coventry have picked up two consecutive wins going into the match against the Red Devils and Jennings hopes City can continue to build a ‘winning mentality.’

The 28-year old said: “We really need to make sure we are picking up these wins now, especially at home and the match against Crawley Town is a great opportunity for us.

“Without trying to stoke it up too much, it is a massive game for us really. If we could get a result, we could really begin to kick on and make sure we are getting up that table.

“I think we had a really good away performance at Leyton Orient where we had everything. We defended really well and I thought we were really good in the challenge which we haven’t done enough this season.

“The game against Crawley can’t come quick enough now I think as the players have to be buzzing for the game so we can continue to build the winning mentality.”

The midfielder started his third consecutive game against Arlesey Town after he had previously struggled with an injury earlier in the season. 

Jennings was delighted to get his first City goal against the Evo-stik Southern Premier Division outfit and wants to add to his tally in future matches. 

He added: “I thought we were always in control of the game really and that was good as you have seen other teams at our level slip up already.

“We didn’t want to be in the headlines and we take the FA Cup very seriously. When I was kid, you always dreamed of playing in the FA Cup and the final. It has a certain magic for sure. 

“Cup football is a huge thing for us this season as it can really lift the club and the support if you can do well in cup competitions.

“I was really happy to get my first goal and I do want to add to it. I got a bit of stick in training the other day because I was missing a few one-on-ones and the lads were saying I would never score.

“I want to kick-on from here and get a few more as David McGoldrick has been notching them up by himself really so everyone needs to help out.”
