"People will look at the league table but you never take any game for granted." - Coventry City's Jason Farndon

20 February 2015

The Sky Blues look to build on last week's result against Birmingham City as they face a trip to Leeds United...

Coventry City Under-18s coach Jason Farndon has admitted his side's trip to Leeds United presents a 'tricky tie'.

The City Academy side face the Whites who are currently bottom of the league with the Sky Blues sitting in second position.

Farndon's side are currently five points behind top of the table side Huddersfield Town but with two games in hand.

The City coach wants to see maximum effort from his side and said there is no such thing as a guaranteed result in Under-18s football.

Farndon said: "It is a game we're looking forward to. They're bottom of the league at the moment but it will be a difficult game for us.

"We played them just before Christmas and it was a really tight game. They're really committed and will give everything to get a result.

"People will look at the league table but you never take any game for granted. We will know we've been in a game and we've got to be at our best.

"Other teams have dropped points and so have we. Everyone will be looking to produce a consistent run of form at this stage in the season."

The Sky Blues go into the game having recorded a narrow 1-0 victory over Birmingham City at the Alan Higgs Centre last week.

Farndon wants to see Luke Bromley and Kyle Spence continue to produce good performances after last week's win.

He added: "I was delighted with Luke Bromley's performance last week. Dion Kelly-Evans is still a bit away from full match fitness.

"He joined training today but has had an injury so he will be with the squad tomorrow. Luke will get another game and I want to see him continue his performances.

"Kyle Spence has just dried up of goals lately but he has had an injury to battle with. He came back well last week but I want to see more from him this week."
