On-loan Sky Blues striker Jamar Loza wants to gain some valuable first team experience during his loan spell....

Coventry City's on-loan striker Jamar Loza hopes to be able to make an impression during his 28-day loan spell at the club.

The Jamacian-born striker joined the club before the 1-0 win over Walsall as cover for strike duo Leon Clarke and Callum Wilson.

The 19-year old started for the Sky Blues in the Under-21s' 2-1 defeat against Birmingham City at Ryton training ground, and impressed.

Loza hopes to be able to gain some valuable first-team experience at Coventry City before he returns to Premier League side Norwich City.

Loza said: "I was delighted to sign a loan deal here as I knew it would be great for me to get out and have first-team experience.

"It is a really good squad here and they're winning games. It is always a positive when you join a confident group of players who are enjoying their football at the moment.

"I know it is difficult to break into the team at the moment but hopefully I can get some minutes under my belt. It was good to play with the Under-21s as they are a good team.

"It has been good to learn from Leon (Clarke) and Callum (Wilson) as they work really well together. I don't know who I am most like out of them two.

"I don't do much hold up play but I like to run in behind, getting the ball into feet and running at the defence."

The Sky Blues travel to Kingsmeadow on Friday night to face League Two side AFC Wimbledon in the first round of the FA Cup.

With a trip to Bradford the next League One match, and both games in front of the TV cameras, Loza says it is all part of the experience.

He added: "That is something which really excites young players and I am no different. To play on live TV is always something everyone looks forward to.

"Hopefully, I can get some minutes. This is a winning team so it might be difficult to break into at the moment.

"It is incredible how young the team are, and how well they are actually doing this season. 

"It is such an achievement already and hopefully the team can keep going this season, and I can be part of the story."
