Sky Blues midfielder is ready to go after his recent injury and wants to help out the team in tomorrow's clash against Crawley Town at the Ricoh Arena...

Coventry City midfielder Conor Thomas has stated getting three points against Crawley Town tomorrow is the most important thing, ahead of any personal success.

Thomas had been suffering from a calf problem which ruled him out of the 2-0 defeat against Preston North End last week but he should return for the Red Devils clash tomorrow.

The Sky Blues are looking to win for the first time in four games and the Coventry-born midfielder is confident that the team spirit within the group will see them regain the form they showed at the start of the season.

"Personally, I am ready to go." He said, "I've been struggling with my calf for the last few weeks, however I'm rested up and back to feeling completely fit.

"It's important that we all stick together when players are injured, because no-one likes being on the sidelines. But the lads were great, the team spirit is still great here.

"I'm confident we can turn it round again. We need to stick together and if we do that I'm sure the results will come."

The City midfielder has already made nine appearances for the Sky Blues this season and he believes that playing with more belief will ensure a different outcome on Saturday.

He added: "Preston came with a game plan to stop us playing, and we didn't do what we needed to do on the day. We need to be more positive.

"I have 100% faith in Steven Pressley, and he believes in all of us. We just need to apply ourselves and put it right on the pitch."

Crawley travel to the Ricoh Arena without an away win in five matches, but Thomas is still wary of the threat the Red Devils will pose.

"Crawley are a tough side." He continued, "It will be a massive game for them, playing at the Ricoh Arena, but whatever they throw at us we will just have to deal with it.

"Of course I'd love to start but it is a team game. Three points is the most important thing."
