Sky Blues young midfielder sets out his aspirations for 2014/15 after double award win at the End Of Season Awards

Coventry City midfielder Conor Thomas says the Sky Blues are targeting the League One play-off spots next season after showing so much promise in 2013/14.

The Sky Blues quickly cancelled out a pre-season ten-point deduction to stave off relegation with a game to go and had been on the cusp of the top six at the end of Christmas.

Thomas' ever-presence in Steven Pressley's first team, with 49 appearances, resulted in him being voted Coventry City's 2013/14 Young Player of the Season as well as Community Player of the Season to give the 20-year-old a double haul of gongs to take into the summer.

Coventry City would like to thank Allsopp & Allsopp for being our headline sponsor for the 2013/14 End Of Season Awards

He said: "As a player I don't really think about awards but it's still pleasing to be given them.

"I thought I might have a chance to be Community Player because I've always made it clear that I'm willing to do extra because I know what it feels like to be a kid that has a player visit your school so to give something back is great.

"To win the Young Player though was really good. I think people forget how old I am sometimes, I know the lads do because they give me stick about my beard and joke that I look about 35."

Thomas also outlined his plans for the summer in preparation for the start of the 2014/15 season where he hopes to continue to rack up the appearances and help City push for the play-offs.

"I'll have some time off in the summer and then I'll be back in the gym, working on my weaknesses and then come back for pre-season a better player and in good shape.

"It's been really good the amount of games I've played this season. I've nearly doubled my number of appearances but we want to be fighting for the play-offs next season.

"Without the ten-point deduction it may have been a different season for us but we want to start the next campaign in the same way as we did this one and hopefully carry it through."
