Coventry City's new signing Josh McQuoid believes his experiences of gaining promotion from League One will help the Sky Blues achieve success.

The 24-year old striker signed for City on a loan deal until January 2015 and will wear the number nine shirt during his time with the club.

Having had spells with Burnley and Millwall in the Championship, McQuoid was part of the AFC Bournemouth squad which gained promotion from League One in the 2012/13 season.

The City loanee believes the togetherness in the squad is a major factor in achieving success and he also hopes to start against Bradford City on Saturday.

McQuoid said: "To get out of this league, togetherness is a major factor. You've got to be together as a squad and already, I see the squad have that quality and a really good bond.

"If you work together and work for each other then success is easier to achieve. Hopefully my experience can help the club achieve success.

"Hoping to start the first game against Bradford City. It is a difficult place to go so it'll be a good way to start the season. 

"Whether I'm starting or I come off the bench, I just can't wait to get going for the club."

Marcus Tudgay and Shaun Miller have also joined the club during the summer, with Tudgay scoring against Stevenage in the 2-1 pre-season defeat at the weekend.

McQuoid joined the City squad for training today and he says he is craving the competition with the two City strikers.

He added: "During pre-season, the manager has been in contact with me and has been eager to get me here. I've decided to come here as it's a big club and the training facilities are first class.

"Obviously, I joined in training today and really enjoyed it. The standard is very high here and you can tell the team likes to play football.

"I'm here to help the team and do what I can do. Obviously, I'd like to be part of a team which pushes up the table. I'm looking forward to linking up with Marcus Tudgay and Shaun Miller. They're both very good players and experienced at this level. 

"It is good to have competition in all positions as it will push me to become better. You've got to work harder when you have competition as you want that starting spot."
