"It was great to get the call to come back.I really enjoyed it here and excited to get started." - Coventry City's Aaron Martin

31 October 2014

The defender signed on loan from Yeovil Town has his sights set on getting all he can from his loan spell at the Sky Blues…

Coventry City defender Aaron Martin expressed his delight at rejoining the Sky Blues on loan until January, in a move that saw Jordan Clarke head in the other direction.

Martin made 12 appearances in his first loan spell at City in 2013 and is already looking forward to the challenge ahead second time around.

"It was great to get the call to come back," he said, "last time I really enjoyed it, even though I wasn't here for a long time I enjoyed it.

"I just want to do as well as I can here. I know that the manager will know how to get the best out of me in how we play.

"Every day in training I always try my hardest. If you know you've done that then you can hold your head high, and that is always the aim."

Martin has already scored three goals for the Glovers this season, in 12 appearances. He hopes to use his aerial ability to help the defence pitch in with goals, something he and captain Reda Johnson have done so far.

"Being physical is something I have always done. Hopefully we can cause problems at set pieces. Reda is another one that does the same, we're on the same amount of goals so far, hopefully we can challenge each other.

"Being flexible is just as important as being physical however. I can play in both systems the team have played this year, 3-5-2 as well as 4-4-2. But I just want to play football wherever and do the best I can."

The Sky Blues travel to Brisbane Road to take on Leyton Orient tomorrow and Martin will be hoping to feature straight away, and concedes that last season's Play-Off finalists will pose a tough threat.

He concluded: "Leyton Orient will be very tough. Hopefully I can make an impact straight away, but we all have to give 100% if we want to get anything from the game."
