Our away support has been incredible

Nathan Cameron still wants improvements but praises support...

Coventry City defender Nathan Cameron wants improvements in defence – despite City only conceding one goal in the last four games.

Since Cameron’s return from injury in the 69th minute of the 1-1 draw against MK Dons, Coventry have not conceded.

The 20-year old teamed up with his fellow Academy graduate Jordan Clarke in the centre of defence for the majority of the 4-0 win over York City after Richard Wood sustained a facial injury.

Cameron was happy with the side’s recent form and performance against York but still thinks the Sky Blues can do better ahead of the weekend’s trip to Swindon.

The City defender said: “When Richard (Wood) went off at York, we were a pretty young back four. The average age was 20 but I thought we did really well.

“Every shot which came in, we defended well and showed some awareness throughout the game. We were also able to limit them to very few chances in the second half.

“To get another clean sheet is great for us. I want to take more leadership like I did in midweek, regardless of who I am playing with.

“Despite people saying we are doing really well at the moment though, I still think we can do better. If we can limit more chances, that would be better for the team.

“We probably can’t complain much at the moment but we need to keep the run going and the best way to do that is to keep improving our game.”

In a previous interview with Sky Blues Player, Cameron described his time injured as the worst five months of his life.

Now his injury troubles are behind him, the Birmingham-born defender is looking forward to the Swindon challenge and has praised City’s ‘incredible’ away support.

He added: “They are a good side who will be up there at the end of the season which makes this such an important game.

“We are currently in a good place to take them on and the spirit amongst the players is high. Also, we are looking forward to away games at the moment because the support has been massive for us.

“They haven’t just been incredible this season, but over the past couple of seasons. When we have gone through difficult times like last season, they stuck with us all the way.

“For a Tuesday night game, a lot of fans went up to York and not a lot of club’s can boast support like that in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. 

“Credit to all of them for sticking with us through the bad times and hopefully we can start to attract more fans to the stadium by getting that run going.

“They will travel in numbers again this weekend and this is what the players need so hopefully we can repay them.”
