'Sights on last two games' - Adams

16 April 2013

Blair Adams hopes to take part in the last two games of the season following injury...

Coventry City left-back Blair Adams has set his sights on the last two games of the season following a return to action against Strachan Football Federation XI.

The 21-year old, who joined the club permanently in January on a free transfer from Premier League side Sunderland, has been out of action since February's home defeat against Yeovil Town.

Adams claimed 45 minutes at Ryton Training ground in the friendly match and he admitted he was delighted to get back out on the pitch after a difficult time out.

The City defender said: "I am really happy to get back to playing and get some minutes under my belt as it has been really difficult on the sidelines.

"It has been around two months and it was just good to get out there and kick a ball again. The recovery has gone really well so if I could get into the team for the last two games, it would be great.

"I would be happy to get on the bench but if the gaffer has been happy with me, a starting place would be great. 

"It has been tough because we did think originally it would be four weeks but I knew if I just kept my head down and kept working hard, it would come.

"It was made even more difficult when the manager changed because you want to be out there impressing the new manager and I wasn't able to. 

"Looking forward to the last two games if I could take part but if not, I am ready to go next season which is more important."

He played in an Under-21 side which have now gone five games unbeaten and claimed a thumping 7-0 win over the Strachan Football Federation.

Adams admitted he has been really impressed with the young talent at the club. He said: "There is some really good players in the Under-21's and the gaffer has said he will be looking to bring a few into the first team.

"There are a lot of hungry players here who want to get games which means the first team has to produce consistent performances.

"We saw Billy (Daniels) get into the first team in the last game and he did well. It is important the club tries to bring through players when we can because it will build a successful future."
