"I believe in my ability, hopefully my performance will push the manager to play me when I'm ready." - Coventry City's Blair Turgott

City Winger eyeing a place in the first team after a two-goal performance for the Under-21s on Wednesday against Crewe Alexandra…

Coventry City Winger Blair Turgott believes that he is almost ready for first-team action after scoring twice in the Sky Blues' Under-21s 3-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra on Wednesday.

It was a fine performance all round for Dave Hockaday's side, with George Thomas also getting on the scoresheet as well as setting up Turgott's two goals, with Reice-Charles Cook also saving a penalty.

Turgott was pleased with his performance and his link up play with Thomas and hopes that he has done enough to force his way into manager Steven Pressley's plans.

"I was delighted with my two goals," he said. "It was also very important to get some game time under my belt.

"It was a good performance from the whole side, we have some talented boys here and we dug in together and got a really good result.

"Reice made a double save to stop the penalty and George deserved a goal. He plays like me, he's always looking for those pockets of space and we linked up really well.

"I'm itching to play now, I want to show what I'm about and kick on now, games like this are great to get some fitness and experience."

Turgott has been on the bench for the first team twice since his deadline day switch from West Ham, against Rochdale and Preston respectively.

The 20-year old is now focused on training to full fitness and 'filling his boots' for the first-team in the future.

He continued: "I've been on the bench already, hopefully this performance will push the manager to play me. I want to get in the first team and start filing my boots.

"I've always said I'm about goals and assists and I've always been confident in my ability. I need to impress in training now and hopefully I'll get my chance."
