'Pride and the shirt is our motivation'

4 April 2013

William Edjenguele says there are no excuses for poor performances...

Coventry City defender William Edjenguele believes motivation won’t be an issue going into the final four games of the season.

The French defender has featured in all of Steven Pressley’s six games in charge and has already made 40 appearances this season.

Having suffered a 4-0 defeat to Walsall on Bank Holiday Monday, fans questioned the players’ motivation for a result.

However, Edjenguele believes all of the motivation a City player needs is when they put on the Coventry City shirt.

The 25-year old said: “We are all aware of the situation with the club but it isn't up to the players to be frustrated.

“When you step out unto the pitch, we have an obligation to the fans and the club to perform. You have to give 100% each game and there is no excuses for anything less.

“When it comes to Saturday, when we play in front of our own fans, we have to make sure we are playing our best.

“It doesn’t matter if you are on the top or at the bottom. As footballers, you should always approach a game wanting to win.

“When we wear the Sky Blue shirt, it is about pride. The pride of the club and the fans, and for ourselves.”

Brentford travel to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday with Uwe Rosler’s side currently sitting in 3rd position in the League One table.

Edjenguele knows it will be a difficult match but wants to win every game until the end of the season.

He added: “They are a good side and another team who are up at the top of the table. They are challenging for promotion so it will be a really difficult test.

“We have to be at our best for us to beat them and it will be good to win all our remaining games for the fans.

“Our home form hasn’t been good this season but has improved recently under the new manager so that is positive.

“I don’t think we have changed much but if we can win the last two home games this season, it would be good for the home fans.”
