'I want to stay here' - Mark Marshall

10 April 2014

The City winger has also said that his time out of the game has changed his perspective on football...

Coventry City winger Mark Marshall has revealed he'd love to extend his time at the club ahead of the game against Peterborough United at the weekend.

The Sky Blues face the Posh, who are in sixth position in the League One and are looking to seal the final spot in the League One play-offs.

Marshall has started the last two games for City having featured for the Under-21s previously to develop his match fitness.

The 26-year old, who has made 10 appearances for the club since joining the club in February, hopes he impresses the manager enough to extend his time with the Sky Blues.

Marshall said: "This is a massive club. I have always said all along that when I first came here, there was a few options on the table but when Coventry came along, I had no decision to make.

"I like working for the manager. I like the ideas he has and the level of detail he goes into as it really helps.

"I still think I'm young enough to progress in football and I would like to progress with the football club. The hard work everyone puts in means this is a good environment to progress.

"I just need to keep doing well. I want to play as many games as possible to prove I'm good enough for the club."

Marshall was signed as a free agent after receiving a two-year ban during his time at London club Barnet.

The winger believes his time out of the game has changed his perspective on football, but for the better.

He added: "Every time I go out onto the training ground, I always say I need to put all my effort into it. I wouldn't say I took it is easy before but I know that I have to use my time better.

"If I come out of a training session and not feeling like I've done enough, I always think I should have done better because I won't get that back.

"During my time out, I was training on my own in public parks. It makes me realise how lucky I am now. I just enjoy every minute.

"If I come off with cramp, then I know I'm running on empty which means I can be happy with myself. I think it shows the added drive to succeed my time out has given me."
