'I'm enjoying my time here' - Seaborne

The loanee centre-back was delighted to help City into the third round and continue to play games...

Coventry City defender Dan Seaborne has revealed he is 'really enjoying' his time at the club after the 2-1 win over Hartlepool United.

The centre-back joined the club on loan from Championship side Yeovil Town until January 5th and has played every game since his move to the Sky Blues.

The former Southampton defender, who has achieved two promotions from League One with the Saints and Bournemouth, has added a valuable option for manager Steven Pressley over the busy Christmas period. 

Seaborne could potentially play in five more games for City during his loan spell and he is appreciating the time on the pitch.

The 26-year old said: "I'm delighted to be playing regularly as even though you come to a club on loan, you can't expect to play.

"But the manager keeps picking me and that is great. To help put the club in the next round of the FA Cup was great to do and hopefully I can keep playing in the League.

"I'm really enjoying my time here. To come here during the Christmas period was a great decision as there are so many games to be involved in.

"It is sometimes difficult to get yourself through the games but the festive calendar is the part you really look forward to as there is so much football and that is what football is all about."

After beating Hartlepool United in the FA Cup second round replay, the Sky Blues will now travel to Oakwell to face Championship side Barnsley in the third round.

Seaborne could be involved in the squad for the match against the Tykes and he said it will be a experience for City to test themselves against Championship opposition.

He added: "It is a really good tie for the side. I'm sure the fans would like us to face Premier League opposition but we can go into that game thinking we have a real chance of progressing.

"Barnsley are a good side and they have shown a little bit of form recently. Of course, I could be here for that game, so if I am selected, it is another game for me which is great. 

"It is important for the side to pit their wits against Championship opposition because that is where this club wants to be."
