"I feel like Coventry is home. I'm having the best spell of games in my career." - Coventry City's Aaron Martin

20 March 2015

Sky Blues defender is feeling settled at City and now wants to focus on scoring goals at the other end of the pitch…

Coventry City defender Aaron Martin feels like he is 'at home' with the Sky Blues and wants to continue learning to improve his game.

The January signing has been a regular in a settled back five along with Lee Burge, Matty Pennington, Chris Stokes and Jordan Willis and the centre-back feels that he is enjoying the best run of games in his career, after playing the full 90 minutes in the last 13 games.

Now Martin wants to keep learning under new manager Tony Mowbray and hope to score goals at the other end of the pitch to help City to League One survival.

"I feel like Coventry is home," he said. "I'm learning so much and I've got a good run of games, more than I've ever had in my career.

"There's always competition so I have to be on my toes. There's never a time when you can relax and I don't plan on resting on my laurels.

"It's great to be part of a settled back five and I get on really well with Matty in the center of defence, we are beginning to get a great understanding.

"I'm also really glad for Chris Stokes. I think it's a great bit of business for the club, he's done so well since coming in and he deserves it.

"It also means that the back five can continue to be settled which can only be good for us and the club.

"I want to keep improving my game and I am really working hard to be more of a threat at the other end of the pitch, I've scored a couple for Yeovil this season but none so far for Coventry."

After a congested schedule that has seen City play on three consecutive Tuesdays, Martin is glad that things return to normal after tomorrow's game against Doncaster.

The 25-year old is keen to get out on the training field and continue working on the 'philosophy' that manager Tony Mowbray has set out to achieve.

He continued: "It will be good for me and the squad to spend some time with the manager on the training pitch. We'll be able to continue learning the manager's way of things and his philosophy.

"The last three or four weeks have been hectic with so many Saturday-Tuesday games. It will be good to recharge the batteries a little bit and get ready for the final push."
