"I've been blown away by the football that this club plays," - Danny Swanson

2 August 2014

Sky Blues midfielder says his short time with the club has already helped him to add more dimensions to his game after scoring in win over Bristol Rovers

Coventry City midfielder Danny Swanson has lauded City's style of play after a 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

The 26-year old scored his first goal for the Sky Blues since his summer move to the club following the expiration of his contract at Peterborough United.

City fell behind at the Memorial Stadium thanks to Matty Taylor's first-half strike but Swanson's 25-yard curler and Aaron Phillips' powerful header in the second-half secured victory for the young Sky Blues.

Having recorded two wins out of the three games this week, Swanson has praised the performance against the Gas and reveals he has been 'blown away' by the quality of football at City.

The City midfielder said: "I'm very happy with the result. It was a bit disappointing to be behind at the break but the way we played in the second half was brilliant.

"It was a young side and it just shows the quality of players the club have. It was enjoyable to play in. 

"When they've asked me what it is like here, I've been saying to my friends back home that I've been totally blown away by the football this club plays.

"Peterborough were known to play good football but the squad here are really teaching me how to play. The quality has just been outstanding."

The Sky Blues face Stevenage tomorrow in their final pre-season game ahead of the start of the 2014/15 League One against Bradford City.

With a different City XI set to play tomorrow, Swanson hopes he has done enough to seal a starting spot at Valley Parade.

He added: "It is a new formation to me so I've had to work hard to get used to it. The gaffer spoke to me today and said I need to work on my defensive play. Hopefully, I did that tonight.

"I think I've done OK in pre-season. I've not been used to the amount of hard work you've got to put in off-the-ball but I think I've adapted quite well.

"The aim is to get into the starting XI against Bradford City and I'm hoping I've done enough to earn a place in the team."
