Coventry City striker Nathan Eccleston has revealed he is enjoying life at the club ahead of the game against League One champions Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 23-year old forward moved to the club on the final day of the emergency loan window from Championship side Blackpool as has made seven appearances for the club so far.

The former Liverpool man has started four of the last five matches for the Sky Blues ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers' trip to Sixfields at the weekend.

Having been able to get some valuable minutes on the pitch at City, Eccleston has been delighted with his loan move to the club.

The striker said: "I've come from Blackpool where I wasn't getting much football and I've come here where the management and the staff have made me feel very welcome.

"After having nothing to look forward to on a Saturday, if you come to a club and play, that's all you can ask for. I'm getting my match fitness back which has been difficult.

"I would have loved to have scored a few goals here and I'm sure it will come. I've had the chances so I just need to make sure I convert them and continue to work hard.

"With two games remaining, I would love to be involved as much as possible and every time I play, I feel I'm getting back to where I should be."

Going into the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, City are four points off the relegation zone and will be looking to ensure the club's safety on Saturday.

The Blackpool loanee is out of contract at the end of the season and he says he would be open to extending his stay at the club.

He added: "Coventry is a huge club. One of the attractions of playing at Coventry has to be the amount of young players the club has.

"It is a huge credit to the manager and the board that they give young players a chance in the team. For English, young talent, it is getting more difficult to break-through in the game.

"Not many teams are giving their youth products a chance like Coventry are at the moment. I think for a young player to be here, it is definitely beneficial."
