'I can't wait to play in the FA Cup'

William Edjenguele is looking forward to his first involvement in the FA Cup...

Coventry City defender William Edjenguele can't wait for his first ever involvement in the FA Cup next week against Arlesey Town.

The 25-year old played the entire match against Leyton Orient as Coventry kept their third clean sheet in League One this season.

Delighted with the win, Edjenguele admitted he is looking forward to play in the world's oldest cup competition.

Tickets details for the First Round clash against Arlesey Town...

The City defender said: "I was really happy with the way we beat Leyton Orient as we knew it would be difficult.

"We can't always play nice football. Sometimes we will just have to battle but I don't think the supporters would mind as long as we won.

"We will have a good week at work now and it is the FA Cup next week which makes that a really important game as well.

"We need to prepare very well for the game. The FA Cup is the biggest cup in England and when I was growing up in France, I used to watch it quite a lot.

"I am really looking forward to it but to win it and progress into the next round is more important so we can play some of the bigger teams."

Despite not starting a match since the 4-1 defeat at Shrewsbury Town, 'the Edge' hopes to play against Arseley Town after his performance against Leyton Orient.

Edjenguele was part of a back-four which kept a clean sheet at Brisbane Road and that matters more to him than the amount of goals City score.

He added: "I thought we did really well today and they very rarely got through and looked like scoring. We were confident of winning today but to keep a clean sheet as well makes me really happy.

"It isn't just the back-four but the whole team really. They did an unbelievable job at tracking back and following their players which helps us out a lot.

"We don't have a game on Tuesday so hopefully we will have a nice week to work on a few things because I know the manager still wants to cut out the mistakes and improve our play."
