'Top spot isn't too far away'

Nathan Cameron has urged the fans to be optimistic after Bury win...

Coventry City defender Nathan Cameron believes the 'fans should be as optimistic as possible' after the 2-0 win over Bury.

Leon Clarke's early strike and Carl Baker's 11th goal of the season bagged all three points for the Sky Blues at Gigg Lane. 

Nathan Cameron was brought back into the side by interim first team boss Lee Carsley to make his first start for City since the Brentford defeat in October. 

The win at Bury puts Coventry five points off the play-offs and just eight points from the League One summit. Cameron believes optimism is a good thing for the side and has praised the fan's backing this season.

The 21-year old said: "You can never be too optimistic. The fans have been absolutely magnificent and you saw at Bury, our fans almost matched the home support.

"With the fans behind us like that, we have always got a good chance of putting a run together and they will back us wherever we go until the end of the season.

"There is obviously a big game on Wednesday but the focus has to remain success in the league. We are coming into the business end of the season and we need to make sure we are prepared to pick up maximum points every time we play.

"If we can keep picking up points, you never know. It is close at the top and we have come this far. If we come through these next few games, we have a good chance of being up there.

"Top of the table is not too far away in my mind and if we keep getting wins, that gap will close."

Cameron has been kept out the side by William Edjenguele and Richard Wood in the centre-back positions. The Academy graduate has been frustrated on the sidelines, but praised the form of Wood and Edjenguele.

He added: "I was really happy coming back into the side and also to keep a clean sheet shows we had a good day at the back.

"I pulled my hamstring after the Brentford match in October and that gave a chance for William (Edjenguele) to come in and he has done brilliantly this season.

"Also, Richard Wood has been solid as well so it has been difficult for me to get a look in really. I was asked to come in today by Lee Carsley which I was delighted about.

"I hope I have justified my selection and I want to continue in the side now."
